People gathered at St Philleigh Church on Sunday 27th to celebrate the Feast of St Philleigh. There was a delicious lunch following the service. St Philleigh was a 7th century saint who travelled from Glastonbury with St Kea and St Rumon and founded a church on the site of the present St Philleigh.

The retiring collection of £126 has been sent to Truro Foodbank.

You can leave food in both our Benefice churches for the Foodbank.

 Following the service there was lunch at the Roseland Inn to which all parishioners were invited. We enjoyed an excellent feast and proposed a loyal toast to the Queen. Many thanks to Katie and Phil at the Roseland Inn for making this possible.

Parishioners were given copies of the book ‘The Servant Queen and the King she serves’ by St Philleigh Church. The book traces the Queen’s life and offers insights into her remarkable faith. If you would like to have a copy of this book, please contact Jill 01872580117 email jill@jilledwards.com

 

Beating the Bounds was a damp(!) but fantastic experience again this year as Jim Pascoe led us along parts of our boundary where members of the public could never usually access by themselves. The views were stunning and the scenery breath-taking. We took time on the walk to be thankful for God’s amazing provision and to remember those who work on the land on which we stood and on the sea along our boundary. We prayed or our neighbouring parishes and our neighbours throughout the world.
