We are here for our Community in times of need and can provide Pastoral Care through visits, prayer and fellowship. Our clergy and Pastoral Care Ministers are available to visit you to listen, pray and support you at any difficult times. Please contact Revd Sr Nikki Thornhill if you or someone you know would appreciate a visit from a member of our team.
Essentially, prayer is at the centre of our ministry. We have 2 prayer mornings and one prayer evening per week (see services) which you can come along to. We can also offer prayer for you or for people you know. You may request Prayer by placing your prayer in a confidential prayer box in the Church, or click here to email a Prayer request to the Rector of the Parish.
Ephesians 6:18New International Version (NIV)
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Have you ever wondered what we get up to on these evenings? Well, it’s quite simple really. We usually have a “study” of some kind, either looking at a book of the bible or at a particular topic for about an hour. It’s very informal and involves plenty of discussion followed by a short time of prayer. We then have coffee and biscuits and a good old chat, aiming to finish at 9.30ish!
It’s a great way to get to know people better and to “look out” for each other in a pastoral sense. We also, hopefully, grow in our faith and understanding of scripture.
We usually meet twice a month on a Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. We currently have two groups running and we’d love to welcome some more members so why not think about joining one of the groups. You won’t be asked to read or pray out loud or be “put on the spot”, as some may think. You don’t even have to join in the discussion-it’s fine to just sit and listen. Above all it’s great fun!
The dates planned so far are: 4th and 11th October and 1st, 8th and 22nd November.
We have a team who visit Highpoint Lodge and St Breock Care Home on the 1st Thursday of the month and from 3rd January we are starting an 11am service of Holy Communion at Egloshayle church followed by the opportunity for a cuppa and chat. This will replace the mid-week service that has been held at Wyndhurst orchard. With many thanks to the staff and residents at Wyndhurst over the years.
