August 2016 News

The Roseland Community Choir will be making a return visit to us on 19 August for another concert: it begins at 7.30 pm and entrance is £5 on
the door.
On Sunday 28 August we will be celebrating our patronal festival with Evensong at 6pm: our Rural Dean, Canon Ken Boullier, will take the
service.
We have secured a faculty to restore several tombs in the churchyard, including the barrel tomb of the Luke family. Work is scheduled to begin
early this month.
Repairs to the church roof have been completed, apart from the replacement of some damaged panels in the nave and north
aisle.

Sadly we had to cancel the planned choir concert last month
because of lack of support , but this month we’re hoping for a
goodly number to come to our Annual Cream Tea fund-raising afternoon
on 30 July from 2.30 pm in the garden of Glebe House, Ruan
Lanihorne, by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Martin. If the weather is
inclement we shall adjourn to the Reading
Room.
Donations of items for the raffle will be gratefully accepted.

News June 2016

On 12 April the Easter Vestry and Annual Parochial Church meetings were held.
Pat Farr and David Hughes agreed to continue as churchwardens and the PCC was re-elected en bloc.
The churchwardens reported that the congregation numbers remained steady at an average of eight persons, and that Festival services were
well supported by other parishioners.
Father Doug outlined the future of the benefice after his retirement in
June.
At a wedding last year the “Lemonaires”, a Cornish Male Choir, performed. We were so impressed that we have invite them to give a
concert in the church on 17 June at 7.30 pm.

There will not be a service of Communion on Sunday 5 June as Father Doug’s farewell service is being held at Veryan at 11 am
