News January 2016

On Friday 4 December churchwardens and members of PCCs of Ruanlanihorne and Veryan churches and Portloe Policy Committee met Bishop Tim at Portloe church for an informal discussion on the future of our respective churches when Father Doug retires in late 2016.

When asked if we would be having an interregnum, the Bishop said that probably the Rector of St Just, Canon Ken Boullier, would become Priest in Charge for the whole of the cluster, being supported by priests and lay readers who would help to cover services. It would seem that we can forget having a priest who will be responsible solely for the churches in our benefice, thereby losing the personal touch.

We were the treated to a marvellous supper prepared by Father Doug. It was pleasant to meet members of the other two churches and to hear their views on our future.
