Choral Evensong
Thank you to the choir for a lovely Evensong song last week, and to those who helped with the vestry chores to clear away. It was much appreciated.

Thank you to those who supported the Fat and Thin Gregarious Ironperson Triathlon last Saturday, a super day with lots of fun and laughter, ending up with a great evening at the Logan Rock inn. Special thanks to Bob for organising it, and Lynn for her lifesaver skills on standby - although thankfully unnecessary.

Intercession Workshop
Thank you to those who attended the intercession workshop, and to Janet for so quickly putting into practice some of the things we discussed. If you have a chance go and look at the intercession board in St Buryan church.

Quiet Day
Thank you to Gina Salmon, and Keri Bowden for their help and support in preparing for and running the Quiet Day at Escalls Chapel. We spent the day exploring what the Celtic Saints could tell us, St Buriana of her healing and community building skills, Sennen with his courage and curiosity which led him to explore the world, Columba showing a life of care and concern for the outcast, and David with his advice to "Be joyful, keep the faith, and do the little things that you have heard and seen me do". A precious chance to stop and recharge our spiritual batteries within the peace and spirit filled land here at Land's End.

Lottery Support for St Buryan Church
St Buryan parish church is delighted to announce it has been awarded initial support* by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for National Lottery funding towards the cost of urgent tower repairs.

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, a development grant of £16,000 has been awarded to enable the church to develop detailed plans for the work needed for the project. The parish church will need to add a further £3,000 approximately to complete this first phase of work.

The parish church will then apply for a full grant from HLF of £170,000, a major step towards the approximately £220,000 needed for the full works.

Rev’d Canon Vanda Perrett said: “This is really good news for us, and we are thankful that the National Lottery has supported us in this early stage. We shall have to work hard and continue to raise funds for the tower works, while we work through the “round two” application for 2018. The initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund is a strong endorsement of the work we need to do to make St Buryan Church Tower safe and sustainable for future generations, and we take heart from their support and encouragement.”

Parish  Consultation for HLF
St Buryan PCC would like your views as to how we might better use our building for all to share in its heritage. Please send suggestions or comments to Canon Vanda or post your comments in the post box in the church porch. More details on our website
