Lent Lunch

CHICKS - Cornwall Holidays for Inner City Kids at their centre in St Austell, which our rector Nigel stopped to visit when he passed during his pilgrimage walk through Cornwall. This centre provides holidays for children from cities and towns, including Penzance.
Also, Graham and Natalie Thomas who ran the Alive childrens' group in St. Piran's Hall, now working alongside Pastor Abraham who, having built a school in a poor area of Cambodia, now provides lunches for around 200 children and also Colin & Audrey Gibson working for the Christian Mission Society whom we sponsor with their work helping refugees in the Lebanon. We will be welcoming Colin and Audrey here in the summer to talk about their work.

The lunches are held in the Church Room on Thursdays between 12 and 2. Suggested donation is £5 for fresh homemade soup and bread, coffee and cake. All most welcome to come along.

Malicious Vandalism

Sadly there was some malicious vandalism over the festive period to the little stone figure which is part of the new wall built at Sea Green opposite the cemetery gates.

Alistair was shocked and saddened to see it on returning from being away visiting family at Christmas. He said, it looks as though someone has beaten the stone figure with a stick. He thought at first maybe kids were playing with stones, but that’s not characteristic of dear Perran and there are no ricochet stone marks.

He just can’t understand why it happened and wondered if anyone knows anything as well as wanting to bring it to people's attention in case it happens elsewhere again.

It has been reported the police.

If anyone knows anything please feel free to make contact.

Harvest Weekend Report


Earlier this month, on a damp Saturday morning, many came to the churchyard following the annual cut by Cornwall Council earlier in the week.  Several people came along to see the churchyard, many with their rakes and wheelbarrows, raking and stacking the grass;  others decorated the church with harvest flowers and produce.   As the rain started around midday, we all went into church to enjoy a soup and ploughmans lunch.

The following day was our Harvest Festival service.  Lots more produce was brought along and the church look beautiful. 

All the produce was distributed in and around Penzance.  First stop to the PeaT project where we took much needed food for the volunteers to cook for the Street Food Project.  Then on to the Pengarth Drop In centre where we delivered more items for their lunches.  On then to Breadline with items for their breakfasts followed by a visit to the Food Bank where we gave the cash which was donated for them to purchase their much much needed fresh items of eggs, milk, bread etc. 

The Living Churchyard is now in it's second year.  Many more wild grasses, flowers and wildlife have appeared.   It is a wonderful place to walk around the many paths which are kept so neat, thanks to Susan Dodds,  Ann and Peter Caswell and others than spend time working there. 

Thank you to all who came along on the Harvest Weekend, working on the mammoth task of clearing away the grass.  Many hands did make light(er) work.  Thanks also to all who brought the harvest produce on Sunday and also to Tim Skewes for his generous contribution.
