Tonight at Old Kea and next week at Truro and All Hallows we will be celebrating Harvest. These services are a great opportunity to invite friends back to church. Tonight’s service will be a traditional harvest service and next Sunday we will be enjoying our all age extravaganzas.
This year we will be collecting none perishable food for the work of Foodbank in Truro. The Foodbank has seen demand growing and this month they are especially trying to raise awareness about their work. Next Sunday we will also be hearing about meals for the homeless in Truro. Homelessness in Truro has also been growing over the last years and this is one practical way some members of our church family have been able to help.
Our all age services will be shorter than usual with lots of fun and games - so do invite those you know who have children. A flyer invitation is included in this week’s Notes and News.
First Wednesday Breakfast - for all Christians in work
Staring on Wednesday 4th of October, in unity with other churches across Truro, we are launching a monthly breakfast for Christians in work. This is for absolutely any Christian involved in the world of work - anyone working in retail or leisure, working in a professional capacity, or working in or running a small business or service. Whatever line of work this breakfast is for you.
The aim is to establish a network of Christians who can support each other with the challenges and opportunities of being a Christian in the workplace. At the first session we will be hearing from Andrew Virr who is an Accident and Emergency Consultant at the Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske.
There is an invitation card in this week’s Notes and News with more details and more information about the first session on the St Kea Facebook page.
Welcome Back - Youth Group and Sunday Clubs
This is the first week back for our Creche, Sunday Club and Youth Groups. Children and young people are right at the heart of our church, so do be praying for them and their leaders as they begin the new term.
If you have children or young people involved in any of our groups then they will need to complete a new registration and consent form for the new academic year.
Do also pray for students as they both head off from St Kea to university, or return to St Kea to study in Truro and Falmouth.
For more information about our Children’s and Youth activities do look at our website stkea.org.uk.
As Always, Marc Baker
