Sunday 21st March –
The Fifth Sunday of Lent
you gave up your Son
out of love for the world:
lead us to ponder the mysteries of his passion,
that we may know eternal peace
through the shedding of our Saviour’s blood,
Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
Holy Habits – Breaking Bread
Broken and shared: Find a comfortable, quiet place and think about the ways you have felt or feel broken. Lift up each of them up to God, and ask for him to turn your brokenness into blessing, for yourself and for the world. Spend some time quietly reflecting, giving space for God to speak to you.
We are delighted to be able to offer public worship in all of our churches again.
For regular Sunday services, there will be no need to book in advance, although places are still limited.
Booking is essential for all Holy Week and Easter Services.
If you would like to come, please contact Revd Elizabeth, stating the date, time and place of the church service you wish to attend (Email or phone 07758 407661). If that service is already full, we will let you know.
Please follow all of the safety advice you are given when you attend, and do not come if you are ill. Everyone attending church services must wear a face mask, except for those legally exempt.
Although we will be doing all that we can to make things safe, please be aware that there is still a risk, especially for those in vulnerable groups.
Online worship will continue to be available every Tuesday on the website, our Facebook group and YouTube. For more details please see our Coronavirus update page.Upcoming Services

Goods for St Petrocs
As it is not possible to have collection boxes in the churches at the moment this is a reminder that St. Minver Post Office is an alternative collecting point.
The best way to help the Bodmin branch of St Petrocs to buy fresh food is electronically. Details for doing this have changed as Bodmin has a new House Manager, Gary Hales.

Living in Love and Faith course
We are being invited by the Bishops of the Church of England to join a national conversation about gender, identity, sexuality, celibacy and relationships. These are important and sensitive topics which touch all our lives deeply, and about which there can be much disagreement. A specially-designed small group course, Living in Love and Faith, has been produced to help us look at changes in society, different understandings of scripture and tradition, and hear real-life stories. This will be a space for us to explore, share, learn and listen to one another and, most importantly, to God. At the end of our conversations we will have a chance to feedback our thoughts to the Church of England.
Whether you have thought about these questions a lot or not at all, you are warmly invited to join us. The five-week course will be held Mondays 7.30-9.30pm over Zoom, starting 19th April. To sign up or learn more, please contact Revd Rose.
