Easter 2013 Spring Growth at St Mabyn Church

Our wonderful Easter Day service was attended by a record number of people—16 children and 59 adults.
Another record was the number of people of 27 who attended the Church AGM held on 7/4 at 11am
This meeting emphasised the team work which has resulted in the growth of our village church, under the leadership of Canon Dave Elkington, who is well supported by Rev Dave Pollard, Rev Jonathan Mosedale with his work in the school and Peter Coster.
As Dave is keen to stress the long term growth and sustainability of our Church depends upon the commitment of a wide variety of people across the village.
The AGM provided an opportunity for a wide discussion about the future and many ideas were exchanged about forms of worship. To manage future growth a strong team has been appointed to the PCC, which combines experience and creativity. Sadly John Lobb has decided that it is time to retire from the PCC and his tremendous service will be honoured at a special event in the near future.
In 2013 it is hoped that the Church will reach out to even more residents of all ages. Any one is always welcome to visit the church for quiet reflection – as it is open every day or to play a part in the weekly worship life of St Mabena.
Already many folk are involved in a wide variety of ways ---singing worship songs, playing music, reading the Bible, leading prayers, bell ringing, organising services, fund raising, cleaning, caring for others in need .
Future plans include encouraging more St Mabyn people to play a part in our services; extend our Home groups for study and discussion; introduce mid week Messy Church for parents and children at St Mabyn School.
