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.

FIKA Generosity Day – Sat 4th Feb

9.30 – 1pm, coffee from 9.15 at St Endellion Hall

FIKA is a Swedish term meaning to gather together for sharing, discussion and cake! Truro Diocese Generous Giving Advisor Jenny Wreford will be helping us explore God’s generosity through the Bible and around the world. Using films, articles and activities and allowing reflection and discussion, this relaxed time will help us to cultivate the abundant, generous life God desires for us. This half-day will help to ground our personal and church approach to finance and stewardship. All are welcome.
