How have you been served in the past week? Go beyond the obvious and consider all the people who work in the supermarket/school/ hospital, utility providers, waste collectors, emergency services, civil servants etc.
Pray and give thanks for them.

Sunday Services

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Our churches will be open but with no public worship services taking place.

We will be recording short services in different churches and uploading these to our facebook group:

On Sunday 22nd March the recorded service will be from:
St Minver Church – on the theme of Mothering Sunday

The Archbishops have called a national day of prayer and action this Sunday 22nd March. At 7pm (GMT) this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.

On Sunday 29th March the recorded service will be from:
St Kew Church – Lent Holy Communion
