The Christian Aid AGM will be held this year in Paul Church hall upstairs room at 1930 hrs.
In addition to the business of the AGM a discussion will be held about the future of Christian Aid fund-raising in the Penzance area. There are no longer any house-to-house collections taking place and other ways of raising funds need to be considered.
A method that has been tried elsewhere with some success has been for envelopes to be delivered to houses with a request printed on them that they be returned to a central address, perhaps the church or a private address. Experience has shown that people are prepared to deliver envelopes if they do not have to revisit to collect the (hopefully) full envelope, the least popular church task of the the year it would seem
Katrine Musgrave, the new Christian Aid representative for the South-West will give a presentation about Christian Aid work and bring us up-to-date with what is happening generally.
As if all that were not enough, a glass of wine, tea or coffee and some nibbles will be provided. It is hope that all local churches will send a representative to this meeting important to the future of Christian Aid.

Worshipping Friends are stirred and excited to gather in St Sennen’s Church, the first and last church in Cornwall, to pour out worship and praise to God for 24 hours.
We kick off at 7pm on Friday 27th September and finish at 7pm on Saturday 28th September. What an honour and a joy to love, enthrone, exalt, adore, extol Jesus together at one of the furthest points of our county.
We believe He has kingdom business afoot and blessings to pour out at this end of our county, the likes of which can only impact the county as a whole, the south west and our nation. We are so grateful to St Sennen’s Church for opening their doors to us and we are excited to stand with the local Church in all they are thankful and contending for and say Yes and Amen Father! Your kingdom come in Sennen, in Penwith, in Cornwall and in our nation.
If you are free 27/28th, join us, whether it’s 30 mins, 3 hours or 24. We’d be deeply honoured and blessed to worship side by side with you. He moves powerfully through the praise of His people.
Psalm 22: 24-28
For he has not despised or scorned
the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
but has listened to his cry for help.
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;
before those who fear you[f] I will fulfill my vows.
The poor will eat and be satisfied;
those who seek the Lord will praise him—
may your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
will bow down before him,
for dominion belongs to the Lord
and he rules over the nations.
As we are instructed in Ephesians Chapter 6, stand the ground against the powers of the enemy, and put on the whole armour of God. Christians in the South West will meet together for the 5th consecutive year as Halloween is taking place, and Brexit is being decided, to pray and worship and make a stand against all the negative things that evening represents. With our good friend Revd Steve Wild we invite every one who is available to join us on this very important evening. Church leaders and everyone are invited to this joint Cornwall Worship – Cornwall Prayer Initiative – Cornwall Churches Together event. We strive to work together in Unity in the South West.
Monthly Churches Together service: worship, word and witness as to how God is moving and breaking out in Cornwal. Music with Mark Grove and OneHEART.
About 30 Cornwall agencies and support groups for the over-50s in one venue for the day, offering awareness, advice and support. Free! Refreshments all day.
Russell Blacker writes: We have a concert coming up of really attractive, tuneful, and rarely-heard British music from the late C18th (see poster). Most of it has been edited from manuscript so you will be hearing its first performances in modern times! The players have greatly enjoyed discovering this music and we think you will too.
We’re including some popular songs from the period to offset the instrumental numbers which include a dazzling Violin Concerto, and a beautiful concerto for Clarinet packed full of Scottish folk songs.
The concert is at St Mary’s Penzance – on Sept 14th – at an earlier time of 7pm so everyone can get back home in good time. Raising funds for the support of persecuted Christians.
