The First Sunday after Trinity 14th June
God of truth,
help us to keep your law of love
and to walk in ways of wisdom,
that we may find true life
in Jesus Christ your Son, Amen
Holy Habits – Prayer
Persistent prayer- Are there people or situations that you have been praying for with no sign of answer for a long time? Perhaps you have become so discouraged and disappointed you have given up. Is it time to pick up prayer again for this issue? Spend some time asking the Holy Spirit to fill you with renewed faith, hope and trust.
‘We must repeat the same supplications not twice or three times only, but as often as we have need, a hundred and a thousand times….we must never become weary of asking for God’s help.’ (John Calvin)
The church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must remain closed.
We are recording short services in different styles and uploading these to our facebook group and YouTube (via our website
Sunday 14th June: ‘Good News and #BlackLivesMatter’

Sunday 21st June: Trinity 2
11am – Morning Worship led by Elizabeth Wild.
The Julian Group and anyone who would like to join us, meets each in our own home at 7pm every Thursday. We light a candle and read a passage from the Bible followed by silence. Then we read the second passage followed by silence and ending with Compline or our own prayers. Different members choose the readings each week. This Thursday 18th June they are Isaiah 43. 1-12 and Romans 8. 28-39 ending with Compline or your own prayers.

Worship and prayer at home
We have updated a section of the website with a variety of resources to help people worship and pray from home: http://www.northcornwallclusterofchurches.org.uk/worship-from-home/. If you know of someone who would appreciate any of these printed and posted to them, do let us know.

Cluster Zoom Meetings
We have started to meet together for fellowship through Zoom. Zoom is an internet based video conferencing tool that allows a host to invite others to a virtual meeting using a computer, laptop or iphone. Our host for the cluster is Rev’d Geraldine. Zoom is very easy to use and help is available to get you started. David Foster and Marcus Jones have kindly offered to do some one to one teaching sessions over the phone.
Everybody is welcome to attend a zoom meeting and it is a lovely way to see each other in this time of social distancing, just let Geraldine know if you are interested and she will invite you along.
Revd Geraldine Ashton – 07957 609085 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pray for
The sick, among them Claudia Tom, Rosalind Smith & Jane Windeler and all affected by the coronavirus.
Pray for the NHS, care workers and all front line workers and volunteers. We pray for race equality and for all victims of race crime and brutality.
Remember all those who have died recently. We remember those whose anniversary of death occurs at this time.
Taking it in turns to pray for each other – this week we pray for St Minver.
Diary Dates & News
Sadly all of the summer fetes have been affected by the coronavirus precautions. The St James’ Fete at St Kew, which would have been in July, has been postponed until later in the year.
The St Minver Fete and the St Endellion and St Peter’s, Port Isaac Fete, which would have been in August, have been cancelled.
We look forward to being able to gather again in our communities when it is safe.

We will be keeping in touch with people by phone and we may be able to assist in practical ways as well. Please contact Revd Elizabeth (07758 407661 – email@example.com) if you want to know more.
