God’s love, God’s glory for the Cosmos…

On Sunday 21st May at St Thomas we were delighted to be joined by our friends from Camelford Methodists for a communion service. Jeffrey led our service, reminding us of God’s love, God’s glory and God’s mission to our world in the Cosmos. Our service at St Teath included a visit by two beautiful house martins and included some beautiful prayers by Helen. The day ended with a wonderful gathering of people from Camelford, Tintagel, Boscastle, Polzeath, Delabole, Trelights and Mullion. They all came to St Julitta’s Wesley brothers hymns celebration and sang with uninhibited joy. The tea was also very good…..!

Services Sunday 21st May

During the short period between Ascension Day and Pentecost, we welcome you to join us and consider that wonderful part of the Lord’s Prayer, Thy Kingdom Come. In the afternoon, our Songs of Praise will celebrate the legacy of the Wesley dynasty in some glorious hymns. You’ll be welcome at any of our three services, then for Jeffrey’s licensing service on Tuesday 23rd May.

Ascension Day

We were delighted to welcome our friends from across the Benefice to St Teath church on Thursday 18th May to celebrate Ascension Day. Our service was led by Jeffrey, assisted by lay reader Sue. Geraldine spoke to us of where Jesus’ Ascension fits in God’s plan and gave a prophetic word to us about letting go of things we no longer need to do. Our 16-strong choir led some hearty singing in the hymns, although somehow Tallis’ If Ye Love Me sounded rather a long way from the original…… The choir consoled themselves with renditions of Camborne Hill and Ilkley Moor in the pub afterwards.

…Keep my Commandments…

Our Benefice held two services for Sunday 14th May, one at St Teath, the other at St Adwena. The St Adwena report is on its way….

St Teath service was led by our faithful and ever energetic lay reader Claire, who enjoyed the last week of the Easter Season with more cries of “He is risen indeed! Alleluia” and noting Jesus’ pattern for loving God, others and ourselves. She urged us again to demonstrate Jesus’ love in Deed and Word. Note the Deed comes first!

God Save the King!

What a weekend! We’ve celebrated the King’s coronation with all five of our fellowships over the last few days. It all started Friday evening with a moving vigil led by Jeffrey in St Adwena church, followed by sung Compline. Our St Johns friends joined with Delabole Methodists to celebrate together, whilst St Thomas hosted for Camelford Methodists. At St Teath, our choir led us in a choral communion, including a new anthem commissioned by the RSCM for the Coronation. In the afternoon, our Civic service at St Julitta’s included a Benefice wide choir. Jeffrey reminded us that we all have a vocation, and although it may not be the same as Charles III’s, it is equally important and designed by God specifically for us. Let’s get out there and live it!
