Thy Kingdom Come
Once again this year the Archbishops of Canterbury and York  are asking every Christian in every worshipping community to join them in praying for the renewing and empowering presence of the Holy Spirit between Ascension Day, Thursday 30th May and Pentecost Sunday, Sunday 9th June 2019. Specifically, we invite each and every Christian across the country to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God’s call. Whether you have joined in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ before or not, we invite you to take part this year along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 114 countries around the world. Together let us pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, trusting the faithfulness of God. Come, Holy Spirit. Resources available to download free at ThyKingdomCome.global.

Safeguarding
"As the IICSA Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in the Church of England continued last week, and the Church's historic failures are once again in the news, I want to assure you of our commitment to safeguarding children, young people and other vulnerable people in the church, both here in the Land’s End Benefice and in the CofE at a Diocesan and national level. We take great care in our recruitment of leaders, staff and volunteers, to ensure that those in positions of trust understand their responsibilities towards those in our community who may be more vulnerable. As a church community, we are called to care for one another, so if you have any concerns that anyone has been, is being or is at risk of being abused, please report it to one of the clergy, our safeguarding officers. Contact Vanda, Caroline Gill, Bridget Hugh Jones or Jean Jefferies.
