A New Year is a new opportunity to grow and mature in faith. None of us can know what the future holds; none of us knows what this new year will bring. What we can know for sure is that life is an adventure, an invitation to walk with God and discover anew his great plan for our lives.
Ending our year at Liskeard, several of our parish made a trip on Sunday 17th December to Our Lady of the Angels at Saltash for an afternoon Christmas Concert by the Burraton Boys with refreshments afterwards. A lot of Christmas Songs and Carols were sung with the audience participating in the chorus. However, the highlight had to be ‘While shepherds watched their flocks by night’ sung to the tune of the famous Animals’ hit ‘House of the Rising Sun’ - amazingly they both go together so very well!
On the Saturday just before Christmas Eve at Liskeard, we held our Candlelight Carol Service Led by our Deacon Peter, and Deacon Andrew from Truro. Many favourite carols were sung. A big thank you must go to our talented young organist Owen who played for us at the Carol Service and throughout the year each Sunday – we are all so very proud of him.
We will be opening the St Neots room again in 2024 for our Warm Space on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. Starting on Saturday 6th January 2024, we hope to provide a 2-course hot lunch, plus tea/coffee and cake. Again, all donations will go to St Petroc. This will then lead into our Lenten Lunches on Friday 23rd February.
Our Monthly Bethany Group will commence on Wednesday 17th January 2024 at 14:30 in the St Neot room, with a talk about the work of the Foodbank.
