These meetings are run by the Kernow Carers Service and are a free service for unpaid carers to give them an opportunity to discuss the issues they face and have their voices heard in a welcoming and confidential environment, with others facing similar problems. There are many people in our community who are unaware of the help they can get and who also may not recognise themselves as carers because they look after a relative or friend. Staff from Kernow Carers Service will be at the meetings, and will be able to give help and advice to carers, including making referrals to Carer Support Coordinator (CSCs) who work directly with individual carers to help them with any issues they have, including signposting to benefits and services. Where issues can’t be resolved at the meeting or by a CSC, we can bring them to the attention of other organisations such as the Carers Partnership Board and Healthwatch.
The next meeting of the Falmouth Carers Forum will be in The Council Chamber, Municipal Buildings, The Moor, Falmouth TR11 2RT on Tuesday 10 September 2019 from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. All Carers are welcome and expenses will be considered to enable them to attend.
An advertising leaflet for carers is attached. For further information please call 01872 243531.
Murder Mystery Night with a French theme at All Saints, Falmouth. Three course dinner. Tickets £25.
Please join us to explore together how we, as people of faith who share the hope of new life, respond to the Climate Emergency.
The morning workshop will look at the theological basis for Christian concern for the environment, briefly consider the current climate crisis and look at ways in which we can respond in a way that expresses real care for all of creation – human or otherwise.
Come and share your concerns and your aspirations for the future of the planet – and see how our lives can reflect the way we (and the rest of the world) need to change.
The workshop will include a short creation-focused act of worship, brief presentations on the reasons for creation-care, some of the practical responses we can make – and time to discuss all these matters in a friendly, mutually-supportive way.
When? SATURDAY 12 OCTOBER, 10.00-13.00

A survey of Christian art embraces much of the history of art in the West, and in other parts of the world where the Bible has played a major part in local culture. In six sessions it is clearly impossible to achieve comprehensive coverage of such a large subject, but Windows into Christian Art will give participants a flavour of the scope of the subject by exploring a range of ‘snapshots’ of Christian Art through the centuries. The role of art in Christianity, in exploring and commenting upon its meaning, digging deeper into the text, teaching, inspiring devotion and providing a focus for contemplation and prayer has stimulated a rich Christian cultural heritage and it is through these lenses that the course will aim to encourage participants to consider the art and artists offered. There will be time both for discussion of the ways in which art responds to Scripture in different periods and social contexts throughout history and also for a shared appreciation of the spiritual responses that we, and others, may make to Christian works of art now. As usual, sessions will be 2 hours long with a half-time break for coffee and all will be welcome.
The course has been written by Professor Emerita Michelle Brown FSA, former Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts at the British Library, and will be delivered by members of the Window’s team.
The course will take place in the Old Cathedral School on Mondays 16, 23 & 30 September, and 7, 14 & 21 October.
All are welcome and there is no need to book. The course is free to attend with donations greatly appreciated.
Truro Cathedral will once again be holding a special service for people affected by suicide. The service of reflection will be on Sunday the 8th September at 2 p.m. and is for anyone that may have been affected by suicide – those of all faiths or none, you are all welcome. Suicide prevention in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly is vitally important; we have higher than national average rates of suicide, and each and every suicide has a devastating impact on those left behind. There is strong collaboration across partners whose efforts are all targeted at ‘Towards Zero’ suicide, and this is the banner under which a huge amount of our collective work is done. Towards zero is an essential principle of our work, we must never accept deaths by suicide as inevitable.
This event is the outcome of collaboration between Truro Cathedral, Cornwall Council Public Health, Cornwall’s Samaritans, the South West Zero Suicide Collaborative, Outlook South West’s Suicide Liaison Service, and Cruse Bereavement Care. Many of these partners are part of our broader work on suicide prevention which is led by the Council’s Public Health team and is coordinated through a ‘Multi-Agency Suicide Prevention Group’ which brings together all key agencies to support the population of Cornwall & Isles of Scilly all the way from a wellbeing perspective through to crisis care. A key focus of this work is how we can support communities, and there will be an initiative launching in October at the next Towards Zero event which will pilot a new approach to suicide safer communities in Falmouth. For more information, please do sign up for the Towards Zero newsletters at https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/health-and-social-care/public-health-cornwall/towards-zero-suicide-newsletters/
The impact of suicide on our communities cannot be underestimated, but we are all part of this community and we all have a part to play. Please do join us at this service of reflection, and to strengthen our bond as a community.
