Pray for the NHS, care workers and all front line workers and volunteers. We pray for race and gender equality and for all victims of race or gender crime and brutality. Pray for everyone on their own or unable to be with their family.

Remember all those who have died recently and those who are bereaved. We remember those whose anniversary of death occurs at this time including Doris Etherington.

Fabulous Fables with Peter Ursem

Saturday 18th February, 10am-1pm, St Endellion Church, £10
Ever since Aesop’s fables, wise and funny stories, featuring animals as protagonists, have been a part of the literary genre. Artist and writer Peter Ursem recently published The Bigger Picture, a new collection of ‘friendly fables’ in which a colourful group of winged, horned and hoofed friends make the most of living together along the riverside. In this creative writing workshop Peter will help you create a short but thoughtful fable. In fables nothing is impossible, as long as it makes you think and smile.
