New priest appointed!
We are delighted that a new priest has been appointed to look
after our benefice and we look forward to welcoming the Rev’d
Philip Greenhalgh and his wife Valerie sometime in September.
The formal licensing of Philip as house-for-duty priest will be on
2 October: more details of the service will be available in the
September newsletter and on our church websites. Meanwhile it’s
a date for your diaries!

Churchyard flowers
An eagle-eyed member of your PCC has noticed in some ‘junkmail’
catalogues ‘solar-powered memorials’ described as being ‘suitable for graveyards’.
PLEASE don’t be tempted!
There are quite strict rules for what can be placed on graves in
the burial grounds of parish churches; solar-powered angel
images are NOT allowed! Nor is any kind of lighting, any toys
or photographs, and the rules don’t allow for plastic or silk
flowers: poppy wreaths are excepted, however. Containers for
fresh flowers, which so enhance the beauty of the churchyard,
must be safely fixed and out of the way of grass-cutting tools.
We are hoping to provide a ‘user-friendly’ (and considerably
shorter!) version of the Diocesan regulations in due course which we hope will help everyone to maintain the beauty and peacefulness of the churchyard for all of us.
PCC report
Our meeting last month dealt with arrangements for various social and fund-raising events – the fete, of course, the visit by Cornwall Organists’ Association, and a possible ‘cream teas’ at Crugsillack if the gardens
are opened to the public at the end of this month. And there will also be a supper after Philip’s licensing on 2 October.
We are all too aware that these activities, most of which are essential for generating income to keep our church open and in good order, do occupy a good deal of the time of a few dedicated souls – even if you’re not a regular churchgoer, please volunteer to help out – there’s fun and
friendship as well as the washing- up!
Church clock
We are so pleased that the ‘missing’ face of the church clock should have been replaced by the time you read this. It has taken many months to arrange, but the insurance company [Ecclesiastical] has been very cooperative and helpful, and with their contribution and the many donations we have received not only is the clock restored but the
stonework and fixings have also been repaired.
Repairs in church
We’ve arranged to have the uneven and dangerous area of flooring at the east end of the north aisle professionally repaired.
This was highlighted in the quinquennial inspection as an ‘essential’ item, and this should be completed by early August.

Church Fete 2017

Thank you to everyone who put in so much hard work to make the afternoon a success in spite of the changeable weather! Also thank you to Robert and Coral Pepper for opening the event & looking so stylish! Approximately £1300 was made on the day.

News June 2017

We hope to see a large congregation at our special Choral Evensong on 4 June; this service marks the end of ten days of prayer initiated last
year by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, beginning on Ascension Day. It has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer. We are delighted that the Dean of Truro Cathedral, the Very Rev’d Roger Bush,
is to be our guest preacher. The Roseland Churches’ Choir will lead the hymns and perform an anthem written by and for prisoners of war in the
Japanese camp at Changi in Singapore, and never published.

And we are all invited to St Just parish church on Sunday 2 July for Rev’d Arwen’s first celebration of the Eucharist after her priesting. This will be a wonderful and joyful service: we have all met and grown to know and appreciate Arwen’s special talents and it will be a chance to thank
her for all she is doing in our group of parishes.

We are to be visited on 12 August by the Cornwall Organists’ Association: they will hold a meeting in church, listen to a talk about our parish,
play our lovely organ and have tea in the parish hall. In return we receive a donation for church funds. In due course there will be a list in church requesting help and refreshments on the day – make a note in your diaries
now. Many of them are excellent musicians and it will be worth hearing them make our organ sing.
