Our Community

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.

Some of the lessons of the last few weeks might be that;

God has remained faithful and whilst events in the world, both a distance away and closer to home might have appeared chaotic and bewildering, God’s love and faithfulness have been unswerving and he has been the rock which many of us have not only depended on but found solid and trustworthy.

Despite not being able to worship together in our church buildings we have had technology which has enabled most of us to continue to meet via zoom and alternately by YouTube. This has been a wonderful expression of love for each other and for God as different church congregations have joined together in unity and distance is no barrier to people, friends, family, coming together from all over the country joining together in worship. It has been greatly enriching and rewarding.

YouTube has seen people visiting from across the world and it is humbling to think that people are joining into our services and heartwarming that they continue to come week after week so we can share together this wonderful sense of fellowship together.

During lockdown we started two Alpha groups, one for local people who have been church goers for many years but have enjoyed the stimulating conversation and deepening of faith that comes from revisiting the essentials of faith. The other for people from a variety of backgrounds and places all on a journey wondering what God has in store for them as we explore Christianity through the Alpha videos.

As we start to imagine what church is going to look like over the next few months I would encourage you all to pray and seek God’s vision for your future and our future as a church moving forward. How do we continue to express God’s love, no longer just in this place, but to all those who are hungry to receive and be transformed by Him.

Every blessing
