Groups and Regular Activities
‘The Gospel according to… you!’
On a Tuesday night between 7:30-9pm we have a Zoom study group (you can find the link on the calendar). We typically study a part of the Bible or ponder a question of faith together.
It’s all very well that it was gospel (= good news) to the people who wrote the New Testament, but how does the Bible apply to our lives in the here and now? Searching for God is the greatest and most important journey any of us can go on. It is indeed a journey—after all, none of us has all the answers when it comes to God, so we all have places to explore and grow. Maybe this group is a space for you to share your questions and doubts in your journey with faith?
‘Say one for me’
In Pendeen church we have a Prayer Tree and in St Just church you can find a Prayer Net. If you would like us to pray for yourself or someone else or for a situation that you are aware of, you can write them down and put them on the tree/net. No request or need is too big or too small and it would be a privilege to pray for you or with you.
We also have a pastoral team that gets together regulary to bring before God any prayer requests and praying for our communities and churches.
Art & Spirituality Days
Rev Annie is holding these days at her house ‘Tremorran’ in Botallack. The day usually begins with coffee on arrival, a short time of stillness and meditation around the theme for the day. Everybody is invited then to create artwork in Annie’s studio and enjoy her garden for prayer and reflection time. Numbers are limited and booking is essential!
In St Just we are running a regular Messy Church together with the Methodists. Pre-Covid it used to be at the Miner’s Chapel, but we’re still a bit cautious and have been meeting outdoors at Bosavern Community Farm and been giving out ‘Messy Church in the Bag’. Why not join the St Just Messy Church Group on Facebook and we can keep you up-to-date that way.
But what actually is this Messy Church? It’s not a kids’ program, it’s not an adult study, it’s not a contemplative service, but it’s all ages together mixing faith with our messy relationships, messy questions, messy schedules and our messy lives. Messy Church is another way of doing church with good food, good company, good crafts and activities and a good Christian message. First and foremost it’s about having fun together!
