2020 Vision Days at Treloyhan Manor in January / Feb

Treloyhan Manor Hotel, Carbis Bay, St Ives TR26 2AL

“Write down this vision and clearly inscribe it on tablets, so that a herald may run with it. For the vision awaits an appointed time;

it testifies of the end, and will not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it, since it will surely come and not delay.” Hab 2 v 2 & 3

These are an opportunity for Church Leadership teams to get away for a day to seek God and determine His vision for your expression of the local church and deal with church business in a quiet and non-pressured environment.

We can work with you to make sure you have an appropriate space for your team to think with tea, coffee and biscuits in morning and afternoon, along with a cooked lunch and exclusive use of a room for fellowship, prayer, worship and discussion together. We can offer groups of up to 10 people for just £250, larger groups and even residential time can also be arranged.

Email with details about your group to reserve your 2020 Vision Day.


Red Wednesday Prayer Service for Persecuted Christians

Organised by FPCT Justice & Peace Group

St Mary’s Church Falmouth 27th November 2019

Thank you to all those who attended the special ‘Red Wednesday’ service at St Mary’s to pray for persecuted Christians.

The response was good. 20 people participated. The service included an account of the Christian witness of a Syrian man who was detained at work and imprisoned, unable to get word to his family.

Prayers of Intercession were shared among the congregation.

A special thankyou to Rev. Ian Froom who introduced and read a Gospel passage and also concluded the service with a blessing for everyone present.

The congregation was invited to take home a homemade red paper decoration to hang up at Christmas as a symbolic reminder of our many suffering brothers and sisters.

£50 was donated which has been sent to help Syrian Refugees.

It is hoped that this ‘Red Wednesday’ Service will be an annual event in our FPCT calendar.

Disability Inclusion In Our Churches : 21 Mar, Bristol

Disability faith stories we all need to hear

Many churches struggle with the right language, welcome and inclusion for people living with disability so Christian charity, Through the Roof, is organising one-day workshops to help. These events will offer new ideas and resources, and share powerful stories of how God is being glorified through disabled people…stories the whole church needs to hear.

Disability Inclusion in our Churches is more than ramps and accessible toilets… it’s about belonging, feeling valued and being able to contribute. ‘Disability Inclusion in our Churches’ are one-day events to equip churches and disabled people to serve Christ together. Suitable for anyone with roles and responsibilities in church life, and those with a desire to see churches more welcoming and inclusive for disabled people, delegates will benefit from:

  • Inspiring real-life faith stories
  • New ideas and resources
  • Inclusive experience
  • Free publication (for those who sign-up to be a Roofbreaker in their church)

One attendee from the corresponding event last year commented, “This was a most wonderful few hours of learning how our churches can be more inclusive”. Another enthused, “Thank you, one of the best training days I’ve been to for ages.”

Dates and venues are as follows…

1st February, 10.30 am – 3.30 pm – St. George’s Christian Centre, Barnett Wood Lane, Ashtead KT21 2DA
