Our Church Community is part of the wider community of the parish of St Just in Roseland and St Mawes. On this page we share a bit about us as a community of faith, as a community of prayer, and as a community of service.
‘For this Generation and the Generations to Come’
As Christians, we believe in a generous, loving God who has revealed himself in Jesus Christ, who has entered into our human experience to draw us into life in all its fullness, now and for eternity. This belief is founded on the Catholic Creeds of the Church which have been handed down through the centuries.
Our Church buildings and Church community seek to be welcoming to all generations here and now and we are very conscious of our inheritance as we pass the faith on to the next and subsequent generations. What we have is very precious and we see it as a great privilege to be here at this time.
Our Faith is rooted in Prayer and our life as a Worshipping community.
Our Discipleship is strengthened by the Word of God and the Sacraments of the Church. Our Mission is to be the Church of Christ out in the world, serving our community and the needs of the wider world.
We Serve …
through seeking to be disciples of Christ, being obedient to his teachings and example.
through providing regular worship and prayer at the heart of our community. It is really important to us that the worshipping life of the church serves through partnership sustaining and encouraging the community in which we are set.
through pastoral care, visiting, caring for those in need. We have a pastoral team who, along with our clergy, seek to minister to those who are vulnerable and in crisis. We serve the young people and families of our parish through our work with schools and the youth club.
through welcome, hospitality and generosity. St Just and St Mawes Churches seek to be ‘pilgrim places’ to welcome travellers and provide space for an ‘iconic’ memorable retreat to sustain those who pass through.
We Pray …
Everything we do is rooted in prayer. We pray as individuals and as a worshipping community.
We believe that all people have a yearning – whether conscious or not – for that aspect of their being which is beyond their physical body. It is in prayer that this yearning can be expressed and realised in many different forms. The simplest of these prayers was given to us by Christ himself in the words of The Lord’s Prayer at the bottom of this page. More information on prayer can be found through the link underneath.
Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom Come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those that trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil,
For thine is the Kingdom, The Power, and The Glory,
Forever and ever,
