News October 2017

Welcome! to Rev’d Philip Greenhalgh and his wife, Valerie, who have moved into the newly acquired priest’s house in Veryan Green (now
renamed ‘The Haven’ ). We hope that they will be very happy here: we are delighted that they have accepted the Bishop’s invitation. ‘House for
Duty’ means that Philip will not be expected to work full time –
Sunday services and a couple of week-days is the usual arrangement.
Huge thanks to Jill Jobson who single-handedly raised nearly £400 helping at the ‘Open Garden’ day at Crugsillack – two days of baking buns really paid off – a wonderful effort!
Books for sale We have been given about 30 books from the late Neville Quinney’s library to sell for church funds. They are nearly all ‘as new’ , a mixture of fiction and non-fiction, paperback and hardback, and
worth much more than the usual ‘£1 for a hard back, 20p for a
paperback’ which we promote at the church fete. A list is being
compiled – contact Christine [501727] or by email
c.edwards531@btinternet.com for a copy. All proceeds will go
towards the extra work on the clock [see page 5!] and many of
us would surely like a memento of a good friend.

PCC meeting : a reminder to PCC members that we meet next on Wednesday 11th October at 7.30 pm in the Parish Hall committee
room. Please come with ideas for fundraising events – heating will soon be needed in church and we have been warned that the ‘rainwater goods’ need attention as does the roof…
And if anyone not on the PCC has a brainwave, don’t be shy!
Music stand? Our music stand has disappeared; if anyone knows of its whereabouts we would be grateful: otherwise, if anyone has one superfluous to requirements the church would be happy to give it a
home!
Baptism of three siblings took place at Veryan on 17 September: the children of James and Sophia Huxtable were christened by Fr Doug in a lovely and moving service: Isabella Sophia, Harry James Keith,
and Ines Lily Sophia all behaved impeccably .Many of us will remember Keith Symons and Alyn Wasley and it was good to be able welcome some of their family back to Veryan. Fr Doug commented that he could not remember three siblings being baptised on the same day .
