Sunday 25th April –
The Fourth Sunday of Easter
faithful shepherd of your Father’s sheep:
teach us to hear your voice
and to follow your command,
that all your people may be gathered into one flock,
to the glory of God the Father, Amen
Holy Habits – Breaking Bread
Engage your senses with a ‘bake at home’ bread roll and some wine. While the bread is in the oven, pour out the wine. Breathe the smells of wine and fresh bread in deeply. When the bread is ready, tear it apart and think about how it feels in your hands. Taste the wine slowly. Read John 6:48-58 and reflect on why Jesus taught us to remember him by physically eating and drinking.
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.
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.
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.
