Weekly Update


Sunday 16th June 2024

Dear all


Thank you to all who came to the coffee morning last Saturday, a relaxing time to chat and share with each other.

Evensong at St Gerrans last Sunday was a very fitting tribute to Nigel. We sang his favourite hymns in the service led by Rev Jill Edwards who incorporated into the service anecdotes which really conveyed Nigel to us in the round. The service was accompanied so well by the Roseland churches choir singing with such love and thanks to their accompanist.

Thursday evening saw our churchwardens Angela and Alison taking their oaths of office in a service at All Saints Highertown with the two Archdeacons, Kelly and Clive and the

Rural Dean, Marc. Thank you to you both for offering to serve our parish in this way.

Dear all
 
We had our first taste of the summer season with buzzing villages during the May half term,
numbers swelled by the three weddings in our churches and by weddings elsewhere in the
village. I am sure, like me, you will be appreciating the improvements in the weather.
 
This week has also seen the Roseland remembering the 80th anniversary of D Day. It was
good to see so many people attending these memorial events. The services taking place in
Normandy were very moving too with their messages on reflections from the past to us in
the present. We continue each week to pray for peace.
 
Tomorrow morning, Saturday 8th sees our monthly coffee morning at Penny’s, please do
come if you can.

Dear all

Thank you to all who came to the coffee morning last Saturday, lovely to see some new faces, old friends but new to this. As usual a very convivial occasion, thank you to our baker this month Susie for delicious offerings.

At our APCM on Monday we reviewed the past year of our activities, the fabric of our churches and our financial position. We also, and most importantly, elected our Churchwardens and PCC members. Angela Greenwell agreed to continue as churchwarden for St Mawes whilst Alison Davy offered to take this position for St Just. Both ably supported by David Blunt in St Mawes and Julian Davy in St Just. Thank you all.

Our PCC membership comprises: Rev Penny Leach (Assistant Curate), Liz German (Reader), our two churchwardens Angela and Alison together with elected members – Steve Chapman (PCC Secretary), Andrew Prince (Treasurer), Katie Taurins (Safeguarding Officer), David Blunt, Julian Davy, Hilary Mimpriss, Nicky Pauncefort, Michael Somers and Valerie Willis.


We said goodbye to James Thomas with heartfelt thanks for 30 years of service on the PCC, as he said, around to help as he can. Thank you very much indeed, James.

This Sunday is Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit descended upon those gathered in Jerusalem in dramatic circumstances. To celebrate this amazing event our altar colour will be the one we see least – red. Our services follow their usual pattern as below. Hope to see you there.

Our Easter season continues with readings telling us of Jesus’ resurrection appearances and hearing of the disciples’ activities in the early part of the Acts of the Apostles. This Sunday, the 4th Sunday of Easter (or the third Sunday after Easter in the Book of Common Prayer) is frequently called ‘Good Shepherd Sunday’ with Jesus’ announcement from John’s Gospel of ‘I am the good shepherd’ and our services will be reflecting upon that image this Sunday.

Dear all


A two-week mailing this time as I am away on leave from 6th-13th April. An enormous thank you to all who helped in so many different ways with our Holy Week services. Holy Week is a special time in our churches and congregations, the culmination of Lent as we walk with Jesus on his way to the cross.  On Good Friday, the walk of witness, taking place in wet and windy weather, drew many who would infrequently come to our usual services to be reminded of the events of that day. Very grateful thanks to the harbour, to Mark for the sound system and the bakery for hot cross buns.

By the time we reached Easter Sunday our churches were beautifully decorated, their Easter gardens a reminder of that first Easter Sunday when the women went to the tomb and found the stone rolled away. It was wonderful to have so many at our Easter Day services joining with us in loud shouts of ‘Jesus is risen, he is risen indeed, alleluia’.

Thank you all, wishing all a very blessed Easter season as we continue to celebrate the risen Christ through to Ascension in May, hearing in our readings the experiences of the first disciples in the Acts of the Apostles.

Dear all

A very well attended coffee morning last Saturday – thank you all for coming and our baker for the delicious cake. The baking rota is empty from now on, so those of you who kindly offer please sign up for another slot, new offers most welcome too. The next coffee morning is on Saturday 20th April.

Thank you too to all who came to our Mothering Sunday services, and a special thank you to James Thomas for organising the daffodils for distribution in all the services and in the community.

Following my refreshing retreat, I am on curacy training from today, Friday through to Sunday, back to usual next week.

We are now on a rapid trajectory towards Easter with this week Passion Sunday, next Sunday 24th Palm Sunday followed by Holy Week and Easter Sunday on 31st. Please do join in our special services at this time of the year.

The Roseland Prayer meeting on Thursday evening focused upon Gerrans and Portscatho this month with Liz Roberts giving us prayer requests for the place and its peoples. These include their mission towards the school, Messy Church, the elderly through Eschol House, the community, both resident, second home and visitors and all whose livelihood is within or around the area with grateful thanks for all who already contribute to church life and community particularly the charities supported through coffee mornings. Gerrans and Tregony parishes are requesting prayer for assistance with social media, whilst both Veryan and Tregony are also seeking support with their buildings. If anyone is unable to attend the prayer meetings but would be willing to add these to their prayers, please let me know.

Roseland Lent activities:

The last few activities below are on offer as we enter the last 2 weeks of Lent.

Tuesday 19th March Lent Nature Walk – Ruan Lanihorne 2.00pm

Details from David Hughes:

Starting at St Rumon’s Church, Ruan Lanihorne at 2pm. We will be walking out to Sett Bridge, stopping every now and then, to look at the nature around us with the occasional prayer/reading. Once we have arrived at Sett Bridge, we will return to the village for a cup of tea/coffee. For those that may find it too much walking both ways, we will have a car at the bridge to bring anyone back that needs assistance. Hopefully the sun will shine on us. There is no charge but donations are welcome.

Sunday 24th March Palm Sunday Evensong – St. Just 6.00pm – Accompanied by the Roseland Churches Choir – all welcome

Thursday 28th March Maundy Thursday Bring and Share Supper and Communion at St. Philleigh 7.00pm

The bring and share supper on Maundy Thursday at St Philleigh is a lovely informal occasion, a chance to meet, greet, chat and worship in a way that is unique to this season of the church year. So please do come – bring something towards the meal but only if you can – and then only enough for you – we always have more than enough food. We will break bread together in an informal communion service around our meal table.

Dear all
Grateful thanks to the many who assisted with making the wedding preparation day such a success and then welcomed the couples to our Sunday services. It was a fun time and the couples have expressed appreciation for the welcome and all we offered to assist them with their preparations. They enjoyed meeting the other couples and sharing ideas with each other too.

We are now in Lent, a more sombre time of year of prayer and fasting – no flowers nor gloria and we move to purple on our altar and vestments. Someone asked me why purple? Click on this link https://blog.ecclesiasticalsewing.com/2020/01/22/why-do-we-use-purple-during-lent/ for an explanation. The Church of England is offering ‘Watch and Pray: Wisdom and hope for Lent and life’ with daily reflections. In this parish we held an informal and reflective service Ash Wednesday service in St Just Church on Wednesday morning at which we welcomed folk from across the Roseland. A Roseland wide service also took place in Gerrans that evening.

Coffee Morning: Tomorrow, Saturday 17th, sees our monthly coffee morning at Penny’s home – 10-12, please do join us at Sunnybanks, Trelawney Road, St Mawes TR2 5BU

Lent Evensong: This Sunday 18th February 6pm in St Mawes Church, our service is supported by the Roseland Churches Choir with our thanks.

Lent Reflection Session: The first of these takes place on Thursday 22nd February 10-12 at Angela Greenwell’s home. Thanks to all those who have signed up for these.

Roseland Lent activities: Each week of Lent a church within the Roseland will be offering a Lenten activity – different activities and at different times comprising talks, walks, refreshments and time spent together. This coming Monday 19th February – Roseland wide Lenten craft activities 2pm in St Mawes church led by Penny. Click here for the full programme

Survey at St Just:
As you see below, a visitor survey is being undertaken – please click on the link below to complete together with open days on offer in later February to showcase the project. Please come along to those too.

https://forms.office.com/e/tAJKtdyDJy

St Just-in-Roseland Visitor Survey
St Just Church and its beautiful gardens are a precious part of our Cornish heritage. Things deteriorate over time and the church and gardens now need investment and improvement so they can be better enjoyed for many generations to come.

https://forms.office.com/e/tAJKtdyDJy

We are planning a programme of work over the coming year. However, before this starts, we really want to consult widely both within the community and beyond, so we understand what people currently think and feel about the place and identify what needs to be prioritised. 

We cannot say too much about what we want to do yet, but we really want your feedback on things before we firm up our plans. Please give us your honest opinion of things as they are now. We will also be running two open days from 10:00am to 7:30pm on 28th February in Miss V’s Tearoom in St Just and from 10:00am to 7:30pm on 29th February in the Parish Memorial Hall Annexe in St Mawes to showcase the project and to which EVERYONE is very welcome.

We would be most grateful if you could complete this questionnaire which should take approximately 7 minutes. Your responses will be anonymous and used solely to inform us on how best to care for the site for the benefit of the whole community.

Thank you in advance for taking time to respond – it is much appreciated. Your views matter.

St Just-in-Roseland Visitor Survey

St Just Church and its beautiful gardens are a precious part of our Cornish heritage. Things deteriorate over time and the church and gardens now need investment and improvement so they can be better enjoyed for many generations to come.

We are planning a programme of work over the coming year. However, before this starts, we really want to consult widely both within the community and beyond, so we understand what people currently think and feel about the place and identify what needs to be prioritised. 

We cannot say too much about what we want to do yet, but we really want your feedback on things before we firm up our plans. Please give us your honest opinion of things as they are now. We will also be running two open days from 10:00am to 7:30pm on 28th February in Miss V’s Tearoom in St Just and from 10:00am to 7:30pm on 29th February in the Parish Memorial Hall Annex in St Mawes to showcase the project and to which EVERYONE is very welcome.

We would be most grateful if you could complete this questionnaire which should take approximately 7 minutes. Your responses will be anonymous and used solely to inform us on how best to care for the site for the benefit of the whole community.

Thank you in advance for taking time to respond – it is much appreciated. Your views matter.

The Prayer Chain: If you would like a concern ‘covered by prayer’ for upcoming surgery, injury, a challenging situation, or life difficulties, please contact either Katie Taurins or Penny Leach and they will put your request onto the prayer group WhatsApp. Prayer requests are received and held in confidence and, should you so wish, remain anonymous to all in the group, aside from the person you contact with your request. Please phone or text Katie on 07777 690026 or Penny 07778 170247. As Paul tells us in his letter to the Philippians Chapter 4 v6 ‘do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.’

Dear all

It was great to see so many from across the Roseland and from different denominations for the service last Sunday at Portscatho United Church for the week of prayer for Christian Unity. A chance to worship and pray together, reflect upon the parable of the Good Samaritan and to share refreshments and chat together.

Thank you to all who have joined with me in many and various ways in celebrating my birthday this week. I have so many cards and presents and my house is bedecked with beautiful flowers. I have had to resort to jugs having run out of vases. Thank you all for your love, support and blessings.

Coffee Morning: Note this is scheduled for the third Saturday this month – 17th February as the wedding preparation is taking place on our usual 2nd Saturday.

Lent Reflection Sessions:  Planning is now in place and three sessions are on offer on Thursday mornings on 22nd February, 7th and 21st March 10-12 at Angela Greenwell’s house. Please do let me know if you are planning to come, whether to one or more sessions. These sessions involve artefacts and I need to have enough for all.

Happy New Year to you all

News for the next 2 weeks covering Sunday 7th and 14th January.
Next newsletter on Friday 19th January.

Our very well attended Christmas services took place in beautifully decorated churches. St Just Church also decorated for a Christmas Eve wedding looked stunning. The Crib service at St Mawes church was a full house with around 150 people squeezed into the pews with 50 of them children who participated in finding and bringing crib characters to the stable and in reading prayers. Thank you to all who helped in so many different ways over the Christmas season. A total of £1471.32 was collected for the three charities – St Petroc, The Children’s Society and the Cornwall Refuge from the Christmas services in the parish.

The Festival of Light took place at St Just Church between Christmas and New Year and attracted a significant number of visitors. As before a lovely light display enhanced on this occasion by high tide in the St Just Pool accompanied by mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies and carol singing inside the church. Thank you to the very many volunteers who assisted with this and to the stalwart apparently tireless organisers.

A new Roseland initiative – a monthly prayer meeting attending or online. Please do join us.

Thursday 11th January at 7pm in Philleigh Community Hall and also via Zoom for an hour. This will be a regular event on the second Thursday of each month where we will have a varied diet of topics and styles.

Dear all
A short news item for both Christmas and New Year
 
Our carol service on Thursday was simply a splendid start to Christmas: the church looked beautiful with the candles alight, no spare seats in the church and some keen to stay, having to stand. The singing was so well supported by the choir led by Alison Robinson and with Pam Carbis on the organ, thank you both and to the singers who joined the choir to sing for the service. Thank you too to all who assisted in so many different ways for and at the service, it was a real team effort, you know who you all are! Over 200 attended the service, it was lovely to see so many there and such enthusiastic singing including joining in the descants. The carol service, following as it does the whole Christmas story, is such a great opportunity to share the message of Christmas. Around £400 of donations were received. Our Christmas collections this year are being donated to the Children’s Society, the Cornwall Refuge Trust and St Petroc.
 
Festival of Light: St Just Church on 28th, 29th and 30th December 5pm-7.30pm, last entry at 7pm. Free entry with a request for donations towards the plans to upgrade the churchyard paths and restock some of the planting. If you would like to be a volunteer please contact sallyt@princetraining.co.uk
 
Please do come along and see the stunning light display, this year with a high tide and thus reflections upon the water, then enjoy some mulled wine and a mince pie, sing carols and if you bring children, an opportunity to dress up. Organised parking and a shuttle bus service down to the church is on offer as are shuttle buses between St Mawes and St Just for those of you living in St Mawes. Buses will depart from St Mawes main carpark ( tickets £2 each way)

Dear all
The St Mawes School visit to St Mawes Church for their Christingle and Crib service was a very enjoyable occasion. Thank you to all our helpers at this somewhat sticky event, smallest children stickiness rescued by Katie with a bowl of water and some towels. A big thank you to Angela for obtaining oranges gifted from Tesco and obtaining the sweets. The craft team of Penny, Jane, Carolyn and Helen offered a dramatic explanation of the meaning of the Christingle and then after the construction of the Christingles in the upstairs hall with all helpers fully deployed, we explored the Christmas story through the nativity scene, thank you to Pippa for helping throughout and with thanks to her and to David for providing a splendidly decorated Christmas tree dwarfing the pulpit.

The St Mawes School Fair in the Castle was a well-attended event, thank you to church folk who turned up to help, our indefatigable craft duo of Carolyn and Helen, Keith for assisting with refreshments and all who provided donations towards tombola, raffle and lucky dip.

Tresanton Carol singing A tradition has arisen whereby carols are sung at the Tresanton Hotel at 6pm on Christmas Eve. Yvonne Fuller has gathered together a group of singers and the last rehearsal will take place on Sunday 17th December at 10.45 in St Mawes Church. Please do come along to the rehearsal if you would like to take part.

Safeguarding Audit

Dear Parish Community Member,

Message from INEQE’s Independent Safeguarding Audit Team

As you may be aware INEQE Safeguarding Group have been commissioned to
conduct Independent Safeguarding Audits of the Church of England to make sure
dioceses and cathedrals are doing all they can to create environments where
everyone feels safe, valued and respected.

As part of the audit process, we hope to engage with parishioners and members of
the parish community through an online survey which will act as a mechanism
through which individuals can comment on any matters relevant to the Audit’s focus.

The survey is both anonymous (we are not seeking to identify you) and confidential
(you will not be identified). We would therefore ask you to be open and honest with
your responses.

The survey results are received directly by INEQE’s Audit Team and not by the
Church of England.

Previous notices from the Parish: Sunday 10th December 2023

Dear all

The Advent Evensong on Sunday 3rd in St Mawes church was a splendid introduction to Advent. The Roseland Churches Choir excelled themselves and we are very grateful to Martin Palmer for stepping in to play for the service. A sad time too as we remember Nigel Hewett who played at so many evensongs and who passed away on 22nd November and whose funeral takes place today.

Our third and last Bible Advent Bible Study took place on Thursday looking at shepherds and wise man. Thank you to all who came to these sessions, we had some good discussions. Your support is much appreciated.
 
The Roseland Churches Advent Reflection took place on Thursday evening, great fun was had with our nativity scenes with singing and prayers, the singing led by Kay and Phil Robinson and the prayers by Douglas Wren. A great get together of those who came from the Roseland Churches. Thank you to Gerrans – Liz and Kevin Churchwardens for offering the church.

Our churches offered poppies for sale for Remembrance Sunday and we raised a total of £78.52 between the two churches.

Flowers are not on display during Advent but instead we have an Advent wreath with 4 candles around the edge of the wreath and one in the middle to be lit on Christmas Day. The outer candles are lit one extra each week. Each candle represents a different aspect of Advent. There are several traditions, one looking at the history of the Messiah through the patriarchs, prophets, John the Baptist and Mary and another focusing upon hope, faith, joy and peace.

The St Just Church Advent wreath in the process of creation

St Mawes School Fair this evening Friday 8th Please do come along and support them. In St Mawes Castle 4pm-7pm

Dear all 


A bumper coffee morning last Saturday, thank you to all who came and to our baker of the month too.

The Remembrance Service at the Parish Memorial Hall, Hillhead saw uncertainty of the weather so a decision was needed as to in or out. Rain held off for the wreath laying but started again shortly afterwards so the service moved indoors. So well attended, around 150 people came to share in this service. Thank you to all who helped from across our community including those who stood outside the post office selling poppies in the previous fortnight.

St Just Church heating is still awaiting repair. Please dress warmly for our Sunday services.

Dear all 

Writing this in the aftermath of Storm Ciaran with debris spread across the roads and electricity interrupted we do hope that all are safe after the storm.

Our two half term family craft sessions were much appreciated with local and visitor families attending. Thank you to Carolyn, Helen and Jane for producing and running their crafts, we are quite a team now and much appreciated.


The annual Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service on Sunday afternoon provided an opportunity to reflect upon and light a candle in memory of one or more loved ones. This service had a special reflective quality and was appreciated by those who came, others had asked for their loved one to be remembered, too difficult at this moment as they grieve. We continue to hold those who mourn in our prayers.

Next Saturday 11th November our regular coffee morning 10-12 at Penny’s home, Sunnybanks, Trelawney Road St Mawes TR2 5BU. Please do come if you can, just drop in to say hello, it is a great chance to meet and chat.

Dear all 

Well, what a splendid St Just Feast. An enormous thank you to Liam Mulvin for his informative and entertaining talk on the work of NCI as a volunteer Coastwatcher. Many thanks to all who came, so many different organisations and community groups represented, often with a fair few joining with the banner holder. At the start of the service, the banners and other items representing the groups are placed around the altar, these vary in size. Some of the Rainbows brought their mascots. Two unusual and easily missed items were the ‘kill’ cord brought by Mike Garside, illustrating the St Mawes Sailing Club safety boat, the cord is looped around the boat driver’s hand so in the event of falling in the water the engine stops. Another was a large wooden spoon brought by Julian German inscribed with the words – St Just Institute Warm Hub. And then the Feast, a great spread. Thank you to all who organised this, it provided a lovely opportunity to chat and greet old friends.

At the time of writing one of the half term sessions has occurred with a great attendance joining in with the autumn theme of our crafts this time. Thank you to Carolyn, Helen and Jane for producing and running their crafts – a great help to me and much appreciated by those who come, some of whom are clearly budding artists.

Sunday sees our annual Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service at 2pm – a special service to give thanks and remember our loved ones. Everyone is welcome to come to this service in memory of a loved one, no matter how long ago and you are welcome to add their name to the list before the start of the service and light a candle in memory.

Remembrance Service 12th November 10.45 outside the Parish Memorial Hall, Hillhead – our usual 8.00 occurs that day, then a said Holy Communion service at St Mawes at 9.30 with no service at St Just at 11.00.

Preparation for Advent – 3 sessions – 2nd half of November and 1st week of December. Thank you to those who have indicated this is of interest, any others please let me know as soon as possible and we will discuss when in the week suits us all best.

Dear all 
We have received a lovely card from Emma – thanking all for a ‘splendid send off’ and generous gifts.  She says ‘my love and prayers are with you’ and our prayers are with her as she starts this new role.

Last week’s coffee morning saw a smaller gathering than usual, due to a variety of excellent reasons from our usual regulars. It did provide a chance for a table wide discussion on aspects of our faith and services, very useful to me, thank you. Our next coffee morning is on Saturday 11th November.

I am now a Hub Councillor at St Mawes School – still working on what that means more precisely! I have been asked if the church would be able to support their Christmas Fair, taking place in St Mawes Castle on Friday 8th December from 4-7pm. Donations to a bottle tombola and to a raffle of food hampers would be much appreciated together with cakes for the cake stall. Anyone willing to help on the refreshments or craft stall would be most welcome too. Please put the date in your diary.

This Sunday: St Just Feast –We are welcoming Liam Mulvin to give us a talk on Coastwatch. You may recall he frequently provides an update on their activities in the Roseland Magazine.

Dear all 

Thank you to all who came last Sunday to say farewell to Emma at her final services. It was good to see so many folk from other Roseland churches come to say their goodbyes at 11.00 St Just service. Emma was presented with a lovely picture painted by Yvonne Fuller, thank you Yvonne, which showed various scenes of Emma’s life here in this parish together with another gift. Our prayers and blessings go with Emma in her new ministry in Penryn. Emma’s installation will take place on Wednesday 8th November 7pm at St Mylor Church.

A big thank you to all who came and all who contributed to the Parish Harvest Supper last Saturday, delicious food, thank you Keith and all who provided desserts. A thank you to Steve too for all the organisation. A time of eating and chatting and a very enjoyable quiz – thanks again to Keith.

Thursday afternoon saw the School Harvest Festival, with parents and friends invited. A theme of the fruits of autumn based upon the colours of the rainbow as Ship Class, the older class of 7-11 years had been learning about Noah’s Ark and God’s promise from a rainbow. Each child took part in some way in the service which was followed by tea and cake. Thank you to the families of St Mawes Primary School for your generosity in supplying four boxes of groceries to be donated to the Truro Refuges.

Tomorrow Saturday 14th October sees our monthly coffee morning at Penny’s home: Sunnybanks Trelawney Road St Mawes TR2 5BU. It is a lovely time of sharing of friendship and tasty refreshments. For the first time tomorrow cheese scones will be on offer as well as cake.

Previous notices from the parish: Sunday 8th October

Dear all 
Many thanks for all the donations which were given towards the Harvest Festival Service last Sunday. The non perishable items from both churches were gratefully received by the Foodbank. The perishable items which came to two large boxes full were given to St Petroc who were delighted to be able to distribute the food to families and household they support across Truro. It meant that on this occasion there was nothing left for the Women’s Refuge but I have been assured that they will be remembered during the charitable collections at Christmas and if you were not able to provide food for the Harvest Festival then you might consider making them a personal donation on the following link;

https://donate.refuge.org.uk/page/86578/donate/1?gad=1&gclid=CjwKCAjw9-6oBhBaEiwAHv1QvLuXKezx0NCfqJkwWMBUcJfha7ISekcOZr4ZRi2WZ5_REx2mTV6zCRoCXpgQAvD_BwE

Emma’s goodbye message:
It is with a lot of sadness I say goodbye to all the wonderful people I have met on the Roseland and worshipped with in the different churches over the last nine years. As I leave to discover new churches and communities on the other side of the river Fal, I want to say thank you to all those who have been part of the journey of the last few years. These years have been an adventure which would not have been the same without you. It has been a huge privilege to be invited into those special times of bereavement and celebration and be part of the all the colourful variety of community life. The Roseland means different things to different people but there is still a lot of work to be done address the imbalance of poverty and isolation which may be hidden but still exists for many people. I leave you in very capable hands as ministry across the Roseland becomes a team of churches working together under the oversight of Rev Douglas Wren and I look forward to seeing how the God continues to work out his purposes amongst you and within you,
With every blessing
Emma

Previous notices from the Parish: September 24th 2023

Our coffee morning last Saturday and our Parish Family Garden Party were most enjoyable events. Heavy rain on Sunday morning passed to leave us with a warm sunny afternoon and the garden party was appreciated by all who came. Thank you to Angela for the idea, the offer of her garden, providing the refreshments and the treasure hunt. Jonathan Delbridge’s organ recital too was enjoyed and appreciated by everyone attending.

On Sunday 1st October our Harvest Festival services are taking place at 9.30 in St Mawes and 11.00 in St Just. Please do bring contributions to the harvest – fresh or tinned or dried food. We will be donating items to the Woman’s Refuge, St Petroc and Truro Food Bank.

In a fortnight’s time, on Saturday 7th October the Parish Harvest Supper is being held at 7pm in the Parish Memorial Hall St Mawes. A choice of a meat or vegetarian pie – please pop into 4 The Arcade to let us know you wish to come (no charge) and your choice of pie or email sparcat@hotmail.com with your request and choice. Desserts requested – please let Steve know if you can offer one.

Cakes request please for Emma’s leaving service on Sunday 8th October for the 11.00 service at St Just to which all the Roseland churches have been invited. Please sign on the list at the Sunday services or let Penny or Sophia know if you can offer cakes or biscuits. Many thanks


Roseland Prayer Meeting
Starting in the autumn, the plan is to offer a monthly prayer meeting in Philleigh Community Centre and simultaneously online through Zoom for a time of prayer.

More information on the link below with the opportunity to select the most suitable time for you. Note: you may need to open this email in a new window to open the document.

St Just Feast – our local organisations are invited but if you wish to invite one with which you are involved, please check with Sophia they are on our list. This year we are welcoming Liam Mulvin to give us a talk on Coastwatch. You may recall he frequently provides an update on their activities in the Roseland Magazine.

Please phone or text Katie on 0777 690026 or Penny 07778 170247.

Previous Notices from the parish 27th August 2023

Dear all

Welcome Companions – Sunday 27 th 11.00 service at St Just is our annual service, an opportunity to say thank you to our companions who continue to support this church.

Last Sunday’s RNLI service on St Mawes Quay was attended by the Falmouth lifeboat and their crew, thankfully not called out at that time. It was lovely to welcome them back after several years break. Thank you to them for joining us and for offering tours around the lifeboat, an offer taken up by many. Good to chat too on their visit to the St Mawes Sailing Club after the service. A very big thank you to St Anthony Noyse, wonderful accompaniment to the hymns and rousing music before and after.

As they say ‘it wouldn’t have been the same without you!’

Planning for our Parish Family Garden Party on Sunday 17 th September 3pm-5pm continues with our offering parachute games, races, a treasure hunt and cream teas and hot dogs in a bun. An afternoon for all the family. If you are able to assist please let Angela know, all help in advance or on the afternoon gratefully received.

Church refreshments on Monday and Thursday afternoons in St Mawes church continue with a steady stream of visitors and with many thanks to all who are baking and serving.

Next week Thursday 31st August sees the last of our summer holiday craft activities with schools returning the following week. These sessions have attracted both local and visitor families and the offer of the playgroup hut provides play opportunities beyond the paper plate jellyfish and underwater sticking picture which thoroughly entertained the children and allowed more time with the adults of the families to relax and chat. It has been a very successful venue and a thank you to Lydia and Katiewhose face painting has proved very popular too.

Roseland Prayer Meeting

Starting in the autumn, the plan is to offer a monthly prayer meeting in Philleigh Community Centre and simultaneously online through Zoom for a time of prayer. An opportunity for us across the Roseland to pray for our coming together as a benefice and for the needs of our churches and villages. More details to follow.

Previous notices from the parish 20th August 2023

Dear all

Sunday 20th at 6pm sees the RNLI service on St Mawes Quay, the first time since before Covid. This is a chance to celebrate God’s creation and give thanks for the maritime emergency services who support  ‘all those in peril on the sea’. Musical accompaniment is being provided by St Anthony Noyse, please do come if you can.

Our coffee morning last Saturday was its usual convivial occasion with delicious apple cake and chocolate brownies.  Plea from Penny – vacancies for bakers in September and October – anyone who can bake please offer to Penny!

It was lovely to welcome Douglas to our services last Sunday, a chance to say hello and share a little time together. In anticipation of the formation of the Roseland Benefice and Douglas’ formal appointment as Oversight Minister, Douglas has been exploring our churches and villages and meeting Roseland folk, often on foot with their dog, Pip.

A rather murky evening provided a quiet peaceful backdrop to Breathing Space last Sunday with a meditation around psalm 62.

Next Sunday 27th at 11.00 our annual Companions Service is taking place at St Just Church as an integral part of our Holy Communion service. An opportunity to say thank you to companions who wish to continue to support our church.

Dear all

After a quiet start a steady stream of visitors are taking a refreshment break in St Mawes church, on offer Monday and Thursday afternoons. A welcome refreshment after visiting the Kay Bain charity shop. Thank you to all who are baking and assisting and a particular thank you to David for organising all the signage.

The first session of the family craft activities took place on Thursday, local and visitor families making sea side scene pictures, a paper plate jellyfish and colouring. One whole family of 3 generations had great fun filling a lorry with playdough figures.  Many leaving the premises walked through the village bedecked with face paints – thank you to the face painting team:  Lydia, Anna, Evie and Isla.  It was a real draw to the other craft activities that are on offer.  Thank you to all the craft helpers.

The playgroup hut makes a great venue, such a good size room and currently with playgroup equipment still present. The playgroup has sadly closed as too few young children are attending but the aim is to use the building for a youth group starting in the autumn, a good location for both outside and inside activities.

St Just in Roseland Institute Summer Fete is taking place on Sunday 30th 2.30-4.30pm. Please do come and support this if you are able. Entertainment is promised.

St Mawes Carnival Week commences on Monday 31st July, with daily family events and activities. The carnival programme front cover was designed by Maria (known to us as Mary at St Mawes school) is one of our Ukrainian guests.  The programme is available from St Mawes Post Office and details online on the Falriver website:

We continue to welcome our summer visitors, many returning and others on their first visit.

Dear all

This weekly mailing returns with news of our churches for the coming week.

Rev’d Emma has announced her move to pastures new. Emma has been appointed Oversight Minister in Penryn, part of Carnmarth South Deanery and will be moving to her new role in October. Congratulations Emma, we will miss you. Her leaving service will take place on Sunday 8th October, more details to follow in due course. Thank you, Emma for all your work during your time here. Please pray for Emma as she begins preparations for her move.

The concert given by organist Dr Rebekah Okpoti’s in St Just church was very much appreciated and the July coffee morning attendance exceeded expectations, a good time was had by all.

St Mawes Primary School term finishes today, we say goodbye and best wishes for the future for Year 6 moving to secondary school in September.

The students very actively supported the St Mawes Garden Show, an example of exhibits below and the end of term play ‘The Island that Rocks’ was both extremely entertaining and with a serious message. Well done all.

Clive Johns has a new granddaughter, Elodie Jane, congratulations to Laura and Stephen. Elodie was born on 15th July and weighed 8lbs 91/4 oz. Mother and baby are doing well!

BOTH THE COFFEE MORNING AND BREATHING SPACE ARE TAKING PLACE ON THEIR USUAL SECOND WEEKEND OF THE MONTH – COFFEE MORNING 8TH JULY AND BREATHING SPACE – 9TH JULY

Last Saturday saw Penny’s priesting in Truro Cathedral, followed by her first communion on Sunday in St Just with a packed church, then the delicious buffet lunch. Penny says ‘it has been an amazing time. I am gradually descending from those dizzy heights. Thank you to so many of you who came to this joyous occasion and one or both services. Thank you too for all the cards, texts, emails and presents, so much appreciated and with lovely messages. Another thank you is to the Roseland Churches Choir and to the Phillies for their contribution to the music for the Sunday service, they added so much and it is so lovely to be able to sing together ‘raising the roof’. I really appreciated seeing so many friends from other Roseland churches, thank you for giving up your local service to enable us all to join together. I do hope we are able to do this again in one of your churches. Blessings all.’

Thursday Organ Recital:

The Girly Organist aka Dr Rebekah Okpoti is an Organist, Composer, Academic and Influencer in the UK.

Together with the Choir Church Foundation this project will see 24 new congregations launched across the red rose county by 2026.

Our organist Nigel Conway-Hewett writes ‘Rebekah caught my attention whilst on a visit to St Ives last year. She is what one might say, ‘A bright spark’ which is reflected in the way she interprets organ music. I introduced myself and asked if she would be interested to visit St Just in Roseland Church and give a recital. Rebekah had heard of us and offered to give a recital. Rebekah is worthy of ‘bums on seats’ so please do come. I am confident you will be entertained.’

Dear all

On Monday 12th June Angela Greenwell and David Blunt were commissioned as Church Wardens for St Mawes Church at a special service by the Archdeacon at All Saints, Highertown. It was a wonderful service and we are very grateful for their support and commitment.

Tomorrow, Saturday sees Penny’s priesting in Truro Cathedral 10.30 by Bishop Hugh. All are welcome – please do come and support Penny in this very special service. Then on Sunday 25th June at 10.30 at St Just Church Penny is offering her first communion service, to which all the Roseland churches are invited and all most welcome. Please do come to that too. This will be followed by a buffet lunch for all in the Parish Hall in St Mawes.

Summer activities: the recreation committee have kindly agreed to the use of the playgroup hut in the recreation ground for a weekly two-hour family craft session in the school holidays. This will take place on Thursday mornings from 10-12. Assistance with craft preparation, serving refreshments and generally helping would be much appreciated at one or more sessions. These sessions will run from Thursday 27th July for 6 weeks to 31st August. Please let Penny know if you can help.

Dear all
Saturday 24th June  just a week away sees Penny’s priesting in Truro Cathedral 10.30. Lift sharing would be a great idea for a Saturday trip to Truro.

If you are not in church but would like to offer or attend please let Sophia know and she will put you in touch with others office@stjustandstmawes.org.uk 01326 270871

A lively and well attended coffee morning last Saturday with thanks to the baker for the delicious cake and interesting biscuits and assiduous attention from the catering assistant to our guests. It was lovely folk stayed and chatted for so long, such a time of sharing. All are welcome, the next is on Saturday 8th July, our usual 2nd Saturday of the month, please do come.

Breathing Space too was very well supported, a focus this time on Rublev’s icon of Abraham’s visitors/the Holy Trinity, a time to just sit, meditate, pray and rest. Next one Sunday 9th July.

Summer activities: the recreation committee have kindly agreed to the use of the playgroup hut in the recreation ground for a weekly two-hour family craft session in the school holidays. This will take place on Thursday mornings from 10-12. Assistance with craft preparation, serving refreshments and generally helping would be much appreciated at one or more sessions. These sessions will run from Thursday 27th July for 6 weeks to 31st August. Please let Penny know if you can help.

Dear all

Tomorrow sees our monthly coffee morning, as usual 10-12 at Penny’s home, Sunnybanks, Trelawney Road, St Mawes. Please do come if you can. It is a lovely occasion to share informally with each other and welcome newcomers.

Then in addition to our usual Sunday services we have Breathing Space this Sunday 6pm in St Just church. A time of meditation and prayer in this peaceful church. Lasts around 45 minutes – do come if you have never tried it – an opportunity to put aside the activities of the day and rest in God’s presence.

This week’s PCC meeting discussed possible ways in which we could support our community during the summer period with our many visitors. We are hoping to offer a weekly morning family craft session during the school holidays and also to offer refreshments on occasion in St Mawes church whilst the Kay Bain Charity shop is offering its wares from the church hall. If anyone is able to offer to assist with either of these please get in touch with Penny. Assistance can take many forms other than being present at the activity e.g baking or craft preparation (cutting out mainly). Further ideas on what we might be able to offer are very welcome. Please do send Emma any thoughts.

The Prayer Chain: If you would like a concern ‘covered by prayer’ for upcoming surgery, injury, a challenging situation, or life difficulties, please contact either Katie Taurins or Penny Leach and they will put your request onto the prayer group WhatsApp. Prayer requests are received and held in confidence and, should you so wish, remain anonymous to all in the group, aside from the person you contact with your request.

Dear all

What an amazing week of sunny weather for all sharing this beautiful place – we hope it was a restful and refreshing break for everyone joining us for the half term holiday. With well populated beaches and many enjoying sand and sea, we pray for safe travel as our visitors return home.

The Bishops Deanery visit took place last Saturday hosted by Veryan Parish in their Sports and Social Club. Many thanks indeed for their hospitality with a splendid spread. Thank you to the donor of the tea, very much appreciated. A well-attended gathering especially by folk from the Roseland churches with presentations from both Bishops Philip and Hugh on the Saints Way and On the Way with an extensive Q & A session following. With a focus upon growing God’s church, encouraging examples of a range of church activities were offered, a good start of sharing for the Roseland as it aims to move towards a single benefice. All in all, a very stimulating and interesting session.
 

Prayer Chain: Katie Taurins’ suggestion of a confidential prayer group is now in place. If you would like a concern ‘covered by prayer’ for upcoming surgery, injury, a challenging situation, or life difficulties, please contact either Katie Taurins or Penny Leach and they will put your request onto the prayer group WhatsApp. Prayer requests are received and held in confidence and, should you so wish, remain anonymous to all in the group, aside from the person you contact with your request.

Dear all
A busy few days last weekend – a more than usually full coffee morning – lovely to see everyone, delicious cake and very efficient assistance – thank you all for participating in these – it is good to meet in this informal way with both St Mawes and St Just folk joining together.
Breathing Space too had a good attendance with that special time of just meditating in silence together on a peaceful Sunday evening in St Just Church.
Monday evening saw our annual vestry and annual parochial church meetings at which we heard over the activities of the last year, reviewed our financial position and saw goodbyes to those stepping back and hellos to those taking on new roles. Thank you to all for their years of service and to those now volunteering for new roles. The report considered by the meeting can be found here.

Over 150 visitors climbed Church Hill to St Mawes Church to view the Coronation exhibition regalia made and organised by Yvonne Fuller and hear about the meaning of the various artefacts as did the 40 pupils and staff from St Mawes Primary School. Thank you, Yvonne, for the idea and all the work involved, all very much appreciated. The exhibition ended with the reflective Vigil of Prayer service in preparation for the coronation the following morning.

Village festivities after the coronation service in both St Mawes and St Just were much enjoyed, thank you to all who organised these. Sunday morning in both churches saw beautifully decorated churches and a special Holy Communion service focusing upon the events of the day before.   

Tomorrow sees our monthly coffee morning on its usual 2nd Saturday of the month from 10-12. Thank you to bakers and catering assistants who responded to the ‘urgent’ call from last week’s mailing.

Sunday 7th May 2023

Dear all
The coronation tomorrow… Bunting and lights adorn St Mawes Harbour and Saturday afternoon sees a variety of village festivities follow the morning coronation service. Do join in with these. Sunday sees a special liturgy in our 9.30 and 11.00 Holy Communion services celebrating the coronation of King Charles III.

Coronation Exhibition: In preparation for this, Yvonne’s exhibition of coronation regalia in St Mawes church was a great success.  Many visitors climbed Church Hill to learn more about what this ancient ritual involves. A highlight was visits from the two classes of pupils at St Mawes School, thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the wearing of the royal robes and being ‘crowned’.  One of the boys from the school was awed by the fact that Yvonne had made the items herself. Thank you, Yvonne for promoting this idea and all the work and organisation you have put into this. It has been very much appreciated.

Later today Friday 5th May 3pm, a Vigil of Prayer service will be held in St Mawes Church– all welcome to pray for the King ahead of his coronation tomorrow.

Thursday 4th May saw a packed church in St Cuby, Tregony for the installation by Bishop Hugh of Rev Douglas Wren as our new oversight minister. The service was accompanied by the Roseland Churches Choir and Douglas was very warmly welcomed by folk from all the Roseland churches. A splendid buffet followed with the chance to catch up with friends around the Roseland. Thank you to folk in Tregony for all the organisation that went into this.

Looking ahead, Thy Kingdom Come, a worldwide time of prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost, this year Thursday 18th May- Sunday 28th May. In both St Mawes and St Just churches you will find copies of a prayer journal with reflections for each day and a bookmark asking us to pray for 5 people we know and love to come to know the love of Christ. Please do pick these up when you come to church. An Ascension Day service for the whole Roseland will be held at Philleigh Church on the evening of 18th May – time to follow.

APCM: A reminder our annual meeting is being held on Monday 15th May 7pm in St Mawes Church.

URGENT: Bakers and catering assistants needed for the coffee mornings -please do sign up on the rota in the church if you can help. If not, please do come. The coffee mornings are a lovely opportunity to meet and chat – we can always eat biscuits!

Please continue to remember in your prayers those grieving around us in our community.

Dear all
Thank you to all who attended the coffee morning last Saturday. As usual a convivial occasion supported by delicious cake, thank you to the baker and assistants and a special thank you to Hilary for standing in as host. Penny reports: ‘I was on a train to Bristol with Sofiia and Solomiia on their journey to pastures new. They are renting a flat and looking for wider opportunities than those available to them here in St Mawes. I shall miss them and so will my cat and dog who spent many hours being walked and petted by them. I ask for your prayers for them as they embark on this new chapter. Thank you too for all the donations I received of bedding and kitchen equipment to set them up on their move. They asked me to pass on their thanks.’

Plans are afoot for an exhibition of coronation regalia in St Mawes church. Our Yvonne Fuller is putting together this exhibition displaying artefacts she has lovingly made and cared for and used in previous village Jubilee and coronation re-enactments. Please do come and along and see this display from Monday 1st May – Thursday 4th May 11am-4pm. Yvonne would be very appreciative of assistance with stewarding for a couple of hours during the exhibition. Please contact Yvonne  ymm.fuller@btinternet.com if you can help.  Attached is Yvonne’s guide to the coronation.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yYSq_CMBuPx5KttvhS3zINQdhbocQF62/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=116936107610901789068&rtpof=true&sd=trueExcitement is building within our community of the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III. Festivities are planned for both St Mawes and St Just villages, details of which are being circulated via the Roseland magazine with dedicated church services taking place in our churches over this time.

Around the same time we are looking forward to welcoming Rev Douglas Wren, our new oversight minister for the Roseland, who is being licensed in St Cuby on Thursday 4th May. Please pray for Douglas and Mary as they move into their new home in Tregony and Douglas begins his ministry with us.

We continue to remember in our prayers the family and friends of those whose funerals took place last week: John, Chris and David and the family and friends of Amber Milnes, age 5 whose funeral service is planned for Thursday 27th April at midday in St Just Church.

Dear all
Easter Sunday began in the Roseland with a sunrise service on Pendower Beach at 6.30 am. Attended by around 70 people from across the Roseland, it was a very special experience shouting out ‘Jesus is Risen, He is risen indeed. Alleluia!’ as the sun rose. Grateful thanks to Trounce, Annie and their helpers for the fire and the bread and fish.

Both St Just and St Mawes churches were beautifully decorated with flowers and an Easter garden. Thank you to all who contributed. Both churches had so many people drawn to the Easter services, it was such a joy to welcome so many and share this most special day of the year with them. ‘Jesus is Risen, He is risen indeed. Alleluia!’

Amidst the joy and hope of Easter, in our community we have had several bereavements in close succession, leaving such a sense of sadness across our villages. Our thoughts and prayers have been with the families and friends of Sylvia McCree, John Brokenshire, Chris Green and David Green.  

And now most recently with the family and friends of Amber Milnes, aged 5, a pupil at St Mawes Primary School. Both St Just and St Mawes churches have a special book for Amber for folk to come to offer their love and support to her family and friends, light a candle and say a prayer. We ask for your prayers for Amber’s family and for the staff and children of St Mawes Primary School as they return to school on Monday.Details of our Church Services this Sunday

Palm Sunday saw processions with large palm leaves into both St Mawes and St Just churches, kindly provided by our church gardeners from the palm trees in St Just churchyard. A special service then ensued with readings from Isaiah and the Gospel of Matthew following the passion of Christ. Please see the photo below of the altar at St Just decorated with the palms. The later evensong at St Just with the Roseland Church Choir provided a fitting reflection on the significance of this special day.

This mailing is coming earlier than usual as we are now in Holy Week with a reminder of Holy Week services and those for Easter Sunday, both in our churches and elsewhere.

Wishing everyone a blessed Easter.

Previous notices from the parish: 19th March 2023

Last Saturday saw another convivial gathering for our monthly coffee morning with delicious cake and great company. Sunday’s Breathing Space provided a time of meditation and contemplation. The Franciscan Way met for its third session with yet further exploration of Richard Rohr’s assessment of St Francis of Assisi.

This coming Sunday is Mothering Sunday, it has a long history in the church. It falls on what was known in the medieval period as Laetare Sunday, also known as Refreshment Sunday in which folk were given a break from the requirements of fasting in Lent. It became the custom to return to the church of one’s baptism to attend the service there, but if too far away then attending a ‘mother’ church in the parish or in a cathedral.

Later, it became the day those in service were allowed a day off to return home to their family. It was revived in the early 20th century as a church festival, now, of course, celebrated across our society. Services originally focussed upon Mother Church and Mother Earth and now our human mothering too. Flowers and cake seem to be the usual gifts, some places have a special ‘mothering cake’ something akin to our yeast buns but in this instance iced and decorated. Please do join us on this special Sunday.

Previous notices from the Parish :12th March 2023

Thursday evening saw a prayer vigil for Ukraine held in Truro Cathedral. Held on the eve of the Funeral of Chris Parry, the young Truro-born volunteer recently killed in Ukraine, the people of Cornwall and members of the Ukrainian community united in a vigil of prayer for peace in which Ukrainians living amongst us here in the Roseland took part in music and singing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ukraine.


The after school club at St Mawes Primary School which we support on Monday afternoons swelled its numbers this week with 2 new additions. We re-acted at the feeding of the four thousand with a group aged 3-9 years, the agre range providing an interesting challenge in itself.

On Tuesday the Disciples to Apostles Acts Bible Study group took a detailed look at Stephen, the first martyr and Wednesday saw the second Franciscan Way meeting continuing to examine Richard Rohr’s reflections on St Francis of Assisi.

Don’t forget the Coffee morning tomorrow Saturday 11th March: 10-12 at Penny’s home: Sunnybanks, Trelawney Road St Mawes TR2 5BU Please do come if you can.

The Thursday 23rd February concert in St Just Church was an amazing experience. It featured the Ukrainians Refugee Women’s Choir, St Mawes Primary School, the Cornwall Youth Chamber Choir and Notability Choir. The church was packed, standing room only remained and the singing from all groups was heartening and uplifting. Entry was by donation and the evening raised over £1300 for the charity Children of Ukraine. Many thanks indeed to all performers, refreshments providers, helpers and importantly to those who came and gave generously. Please see the photo below of the Ukrainian Choir.

Last Sunday’s Lent Evensong was much appreciated with grateful thanks to the Roseland Churches Choir for their support and contribution to this choral service. Appreciated too was the Quiet Day in St Just Church on Tuesday, at which despite the rather chilly weather, participants meditation and quiet times were warmed by hot drinks and soup.

Meet, Make and Munch had a good time with an enactment of the parable of the Good Samaritan, one attendee in particular enjoyed experimenting with early first aid training in the use of crepe bandages whilst others showed great attention to detail with a range of crafts.

We offer our prayers for Dr Mark Stephens, a GP in our Roseland Surgery, who has been diagnosed with a serious illness preventing him from continuing to help us. We thank him for all he has done for our community.

Previous notices from the parish: 26th February 2023

Our thoughts turn to the world this week with the further earthquake tremors causing more loss of life and destruction in Turkey and Syria. In our minds too is the anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We remember all affected by these, those mourning, those injured and those whose lives have been fundamentally changed and we pray for them with words from Isaiah 43:2 ‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you’ whatever those ‘waters’ might be.

The wedding preparation weekend saw 7 couples attending and it was so lovely to hear them share their stories of how they met, how they became engaged and their wedding plans. After the Saturday session they found their way to the St Mawes Hotel and later ended up sharing a meal of fish and chips together, having really bonded as a group.

As we enter Lent, Shrove Tuesday saw pancakes consumed and a good time had by all. The well attended Ash Wednesday Holy Communion service took place informally in a circle with a thought-provoking reflection, a great reminder of this significant season of the church year.

The other planned church activities of last week all took place. The after-school club had an attendance of children across the age range and exploring how those involved felt when Jesus healed the leper. The Bible study group met for its second session, looking at Peter’s dramatic first healing ‘in the name of Jesus’ in Acts 3-4 and the reaction in Jerusalem. The Franciscan Way group met for the first time with videos from Richard Rohr and discussion of his introduction to the Franciscan Way. Please do come and join in.

At the time of writing the Thursday evening concert with the Ukrainian Women’s Choir and other performers including a choir from St Mawes Primary School coached by Emma has not yet taken place – more on this next week.

Dear All
Since our last update the February coffee morning took place, a convivial gathering with delicious cakes and biscuits with grateful thanks to the baker and kitchen assistant. Breathing Space provided just that, a space to breathe and reflect in a quiet St Just church. The first session of Acts of the Apostles provoked a lively discussion around Jesus’ resurrection and Pentecost.

This weekend sees the wedding preparation session on Saturday afternoon. We look forward to welcoming the wedding couples as they prepare for their weddings this coming year.

Lent starts next week on Ash Wednesday with a special service in St Just church at 10.00. It is preceded by Shrove Tuesday with pancakes on offer.

Monday sees our first foray into our after school club. On Tuesday the Bible Study group meets again.

On Wednesday evening Emma leads the first session of the Franciscan Way, as she says ‘a 7 week 7-week course on the Franciscans, using readings and recordings from Richard Rohr to inspire our discussion, be prepared to set out on an inspiring roller coaster.

Thursday evening sees the Ukrainian Women’s Choir concert at 6.30pm at St Just Church. The Ukrainian Women’s Choir are joined by Cornwall Youth Chamber Choir, the Notability Choir and the St Mawes Primary School Choir. This will be a lovely event with refreshments on offer.

A good crowd of children, parents and grandparents came to the first Meet, Make and Munch last Sunday and did exactly as proverbially ‘it says on the tin’, a chance to chat, do crafts connected with our story, the parable of the prodigal son, and make their own sandwiches and decorated cakes. Planned as a monthly event on the 4th Sunday of the month, the next takes place on Sunday 26th February. Thank you very much indeed to those who helped with crafts and food, before and at the time.

On the Way: The Deanery has announced the Roseland Oversight Minister, the Rev Douglas Wren, will be installed on Thursday 4th May 7pm at St Cuby Tregony. All welcome from all the Roseland churches.

Previous notices from the parish

8th January 2023

Dear All

Happy New Year to you all. A big thank you to all who contributed to our Christmas festivities in church and community. It was wonderful to see so many people there.  Our celebrations culminated in the Festival of Light which was a wonderful community experience.  Much effort by many with the churches beautifully decorated and many visitors over this festive period.  

After the fast pace of Christmas and New Year festivities, as well as the effects of seasonal coughs and colds we return to the notices being sent out on each week.

Sunday afternoon saw the Community Christmas Service enjoyed by young and old alike – the wonky donkey gave a star performance, the Holly Belles sang beautifully and led us in the singing and the imaginative craft activities showed us the light and hope of Christmas. All supported by delicious refreshments. Many thanks to all who assisted in so many ways. Photos below.
 
A chilly week for us all especially the icy conditions earlier in the week that unfortunately prevented both of the primary school visits to the churches. Emma was able to go into school in the afternoon and offer the Christingle story and made them with the children, so each child was able to take home ‘their’ Christingle. Thank you too to those who came to Penny’s coffee morning on Saturday, great company and delicious cakes.

Christmas Tree at St Just adorned with Christmas decorations made by pupils of St Mawes School.

Two particular requests for assistance at this time:

Children’s craft assembly for the Festival of Light
Monday 19th December 2-4pm at Emma’s home 18 Waterloo Close – please come if you can – refreshments provided

Festival of Light 29th and 30th December – Assistance needed in a variety of roles on either or both evenings– timetabled to allow enjoyment in the Festival as well as helping. Please contact Sally Prince 07785 772178

This email contains details of services for the next 3 Sundays, next email will be sent out on Friday 6th January. ( the parish office will reopen on that date)

As we near the year end, a very warm heartfelt thank you, thank you for all the support and contributions to our churches and services over 2022.

Merry Christmas and blessings to you all for the peace and joy of Christmas. And Happy New Year with best wishes for 2023.

Festival of Light Thursday 29th and Friday 30th December St Just Church 4.30pm-7.30pm

As described in Cornwall Live:

One of the Cornish Christmas hits of last year – St Just in Roseland’s Festival of Light – will be back again this year, bigger and better than ever.
The world-famous church and gardens will host a magnificent display of themed Christmas trees for 12 days starting on December 18 and open daily, culminating in two special light show nights on December 29 and 30. Described by poet laureate John Betjeman as possibly “the most beautiful churchyard on Earth”, the church and gardens will be transformed by a magnificent light display bringing joy and hope in tough times.
Christmas trees will form a backdrop for light-hearted seasonal music, sing-along carols, a children’s drama, craft sessions and lots of mulled wine and mince pies. The evening will not be complete without a visit to the sweet shop and a lucky dip in the bran tub, then round everything off at the hog roast feast with toffee apples and festive music from the Wurlitzer.’

Volunteers still needed to assist on one or both evenings in a variety of ways. Please contact Sally and Andrew Prince if you are able to offer – andrewp@princetraining.co.uk
