Street Pastors
Michelle and Cecil our Street Pastors were out with the team in Penzance last Saturday. A wet night but the revellers we met were in good spirit. We prayed for a homeless man that we spoke to and another man's wife who now needs care. If anyone would like to come out as an observer one night please contact Cecil on 07910432078. 

Good News
Great news to celebrate in St Buryan. We are delighted to be able to inform you that the Heritage Lottery Funding has agreed to give us the grant to do the work on our tower in St Buryan. Such good news that we can at last start the work and ensure that the tower is safe for the next generations. Huge thanks are due to the Tower Team, Ian Groves and Ian Vinnacome, Paddy Hersant, Caroline Amos, Marian Prowse, Derek Cox who have managed the long process, and of course thanks to everyone who has helped in fundraising over the past years. A true community effort – fantastic work!

Christmas Windows
It’s time to think of decorating the church windows again. The two or three years we’ve been doing it has been such a wonderful addition to the look & feel of the church. One or two people have said they’d like to do it again, if you fancy decorating a window please put your name down on the list that will be in church soon, or let me know. Wendy.

Christingles
Help needed to make 300 Christingles on Saturday 8th December. We will be meeting in church from about 9am onwards, if you can spare a little time that morning it would be such a great help, the more people the merrier, we’ll finish the job much more quickly. It’s such a jolly place to be, with Christmas music, chat, mince pies etc & coffee or tea, some people come every year saying it’s their start to the Christmas season.

Christmas Cards
If you haven’t seen our new Christmas cards, we have a wonderful photograph taken by Ian Groves from the top of the tower during the snow earlier this year. We ar selling them in packs of five with the greeting ‘Nadelik Lowen’ inside (Happy Christmas in Cornish). Price £4.50. Please let me know if you and your friends would like to buy any. We hope to have a stall at the Farmer’s Market leading up to Christmas. Fiona.

Safeguarding
"As the IICSA Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in the Church of England continued last week, and the Church's historic failures are once again in the news, I want to assure you of our commitment to safeguarding children, young people and other vulnerable people in the church, both here in the Land’s End Benefice and in the CofE at a Diocesan and national level. We take great care in our recruitment of leaders, staff and volunteers, to ensure that those in positions of trust understand their responsibilities towards those in our community who may be more vulnerable. As a church community, we are called to care for one another, so if you have any concerns that anyone has been, is being or is at risk of being abused, please report it to one of the clergy, our safeguarding officers. Contact Vanda, Caroline Gill, Bridget Hugh Jones or Jean Jefferies.
