Misbehavin’: ELEMENTAL

Saturday 20 May, 7.30pm, St Endellion Church

Misbehavin’ returns to St. Endellion with ‘Elemental’, the band’s latest project with new songs and instumentals. Drawing upon the band members’ eclectic and diverse journeys across musical frontiers including jazz, music theatre, traditional and contemporary  music, Misbehavin’  have created an exciting body of work inspired by the elements. Their original songs and instrumentals, whether virtuosic and sassy, or beautiful and soaring, both enrapture and surprise. Breathless vocals (Helen Porter), fiery clarinets  (Karen Wimhurst) and earthy rhythms (Robin Walter on rhythm guitar and James Budden on double bass) – a performance not to be missed!

St Kew Parish Supper beats off the January Blues

People from across the eight villages converged on the Parish Hall on Saturday 21st January to eat, drink and sing the January blues away.
The tables were dressed with flowers and candles, the food was all deliciously homemade and donated by volunteers, there was a mind-bending Cornish place names quiz, a raffle, and the evening was rounded off with a series of floral choral singalong songs – looking forward to the St Kew flower festival (set for the 5 – 7 May Bank Holiday weekend, in the church). And at the end of the night we were blown away by a blast from the bagpipes before everyone helped clear the hall in the blink of an eye!  A huge thank you to all of the table layers, cooks, servers, washer uppers, quiz-whizzers, musicians and eaters.

Together we raised £1,007 which will be split between our lovely parish hall and church.  Hurrah! (and thanks to Kim Appleby for the fantastic photos!)

Pilgrimage with Mark’s Gospel

Mondays, 7-8.30pm, 9th January – 27th February, 2017
Most people think of a pilgrimage as a visit to a particular place but in truth we are on a Christian journey our whole lives. You are invited to join an eight week pilgrimage that is a journey together, in the Gospel of Mark in January and February. We plan to meet once a week on Mondays at Jill and Henry Gompertz’ house. Henry will prepare some material but this will be a journey together. Hopefully (in every sense) we will arrive at a different place from where we started and with a deeper knowledge of the shortest, most direct, and probably oldest gospel. If you plan to come along it would be a great help to let Jill or Henry know in advance but you can come anyway. Contact: 01208 869421.

The Port Isaac Angel

Something wonderful has happened in Port Isaac again this Christmas. The community with the help of a group of artists have created a huge angel as well as lots of their own angel lanterns to carry in the parade which took place on 2nd December. With the help of a musician, the school has even created an Angel Song for the community to sing. The Port Isaac angel has travelled to the Bodmin and Lostwithiel parades as well, but has now settled in St Peter’s Church, as a sign of blessing to the whole community this Christmas.
