the end of our searching,

and to give all that we have
to gain the pearl beyond all price,

Sunday Services               

It has been wonderful to be able to worship together in person again. We will be increasing the number of services in church in the next weeks, but places are still limited.

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.

The Julian Group and anyone who would like to join us, meets each in our own home at 7pm every Thursday. We light a candle and read a passage from the Bible followed by silence. Then we read the second passage followed by silence and ending with Compline or our own prayers. Different members choose the readings each week. Thursday 27th August they are Psalm 139 vv 1 – 18 & 23, 24 . And 2 Corinthians 4. 13 to end.

Please pray for

The sick, among them Claudia Tom, Rosalind Smith & Jane Windeler and all affected by the coronavirus.

Pray for the NHS, care workers and all front line workers and volunteers. We pray for race equality and for all victims of race crime and brutality.

Remember all those who have died recently including Michael Bloor. We remember those whose anniversary of death occurs at this time including Ken Buse and Wendy Turner.

Taking it in turns to pray for each other – this week we pray for St Endellion.

Cluster Zoom Meetings

We have started to meet together for fellowship through Zoom. Zoom is an internet based video conferencing tool that allows a host to invite others to a virtual meeting using a computer, laptop or iphone. Our host for the cluster is Rev’d Geraldine. Zoom is very easy to use and help is available to get you started.  David Foster and Marcus Jones have kindly offered to do some one to one teaching sessions over the phone. Everybody is welcome to attend a zoom meeting and it is a lovely way to see each other in this time of social distancing, just let Geraldine know if you are interested and she will invite you along.
