For this service I have used resources from Thy Kingdom Come, a global prayer initiative started by the C of E which embraces Christians of all denominations running between Ascension Day and Pentecost. I have included an address by the Archbishop, Justin Welby. For further information, videos and great prayer resources go to;
 
 
All the cloud photos in the YouTube Services were taken on my mobile phone from a walk last Tuesday and overlook Carrick Roads towards Falmouth. Praise God for such timely stunning skycapes!

Alpha is a combined Roseland Churches initiative and I have included a link for the first session so you can watch it and see how good it is before you invite people, or come yourself. It is especially relevant as we are all praying for five family and friends over Thy Kingdom Come 10 days between Ascension Day and Pentecost. This is an ideal opportunity to build on those prayers and enable God’s work to continue in their lives and of course with Zoom distance is no obstacle so anyone, anywhere, can join Alpha Zoom sessions.
 
Alpha involves a weekly meeting over 11 weeks, each meeting starts with a general introductory chat for 15 mins, watching an online video for 30 mins and then group discussion for another 30-45 mins. The whole idea is that people come and feel able to say whatever they think, that they feel loved, accepted and valued in their thoughts and opinions. It is completely non judgmental and completely positive of each person as an individual and it creates a safe place to explore and discuss the big issues of life, meaning and the Christian faith. The best way for people to come is by personal invitation so although posters will be going up, tell people you know personally that it is happening and encourage them if they seem interested. The whole thing is free, but on Zoom you will have to bring your own drink!
 
Please forward this email on to anyone you know who might be interested in the services and Alpha,

It does not cost you anything to download Zoom and Andrew Prince has not only provided a very helpful guide to follow to get connected (see below) but he is also willing to talk anyone through who would like to join in but would like some one to help them through the technical side. People at St Mawes will know Andrew but for everyone else he has had umpteen years experience in IT and is very kind and patient!!! To contact Andrew please email andrewp@princetraining.co.uk or phone him on 07770427327.

I wish you every joy and thank you for your patience as we explore new ways of being and doing church in these unusual times. I hope that you manage to access at least one of these services.

All the very best
Emma

Coronavirus Update

Dear All,

The Church continues to be locked but our work as a church continues. Our Church Pastoral group is intending to keep connected with the people we have on the electoral roll but please let us know if you or someone you know needs support. Local community groups and individuals are rallying around providing amazing support for people with their daily needs. As a church we have such a tremendous rock on which our lives and faith are built, we can provide comfort for people who are worried or anxious and reassure them that God has ultimate control over this situation. We now through our own faith and experiences the God longs to draw close to people and bring them comfort and even though we can’t visit we can phone our friends and neighbours, we can offer to pray for them and reassure them that God’s love is stronger than anything they might have to face and He alone can bring the deep comfort and peace which we need right now.

Please let me know if you would like to join the Prayer Chain or if you have prayers you would like the Prayer Chain to be praying.

Many thanks
Emma
