Communion and Cake A New Beginning:

We offer many opportunities to worship here in the benefice, but for some the lack of an afternoon service is a problem, for others access to the churches is a challenge, and there is a need for a warm space with easy access to the toilet. We are very lucky to have a generous offer from St Buryan Academy to use their new Garden Room after school, which is warm, accessible and has both a kitchen and a toilet. The Garden Room is on the righthand side of the playground. So we are starting a new service on the 2nd Thursday every month, at 4pm, starting on Thursday 14th June. It will be a simple short communion (Eucharist) followed by cake and tea. Everyone is warmly welcomed, please let others know about this new service. In order to make the space and time to do this new service properly, under the advice of our church wardens, we shall not have a mid week Eucharist in either St Buryan or St Levan church in the week we have the Communion and Cake Service.
