A memorable array of Christmas Services, many by candlelight saw the congregation raise £233 for the Children’s Society at the Christingle and £x for Crisis at the Nine Lessons and Carols.
Andrew Wade’s Final Service – 30th October 2017
Members from all the churches in the benefice gathered together in Probus Church for Rev Andrew Wade’s last service before his retirement.
The music was led by a combined choir from all the churches as well as the music group from Probus Church. Using Bible passages from 2 Timothy 3 and John 15, Andrew preached on Bible Sunday and the importance of regularly reading the Bible. He also mentioned that in all his years of ministry one piece of advice had stuck more than most: that a minister should, Love God, Love the people and Love the Place.
As Andrew and Jane move to Carlyon Bay for their retirement we wish them well and thank God for their service to the communities within our benefice.
Meets fortnightly on a Thursday afternoon where pre-school children and their carers explore Bible Stories through an array of activities.
Probus School Harvest – 12th September 2017
During the service the different classes read poetry, sang songs and gave readings, reflecting on Harvest, Autumn and Freedom. Some of the readings and poems were written by the children themselves. The congregation joined in with the traditional harvest song of ‘We plough the fields and scatter’.
Instead of the usual gifts of food and produce there was a leaving collection for St Austell Foodbank.
At the back of the church was a fantastic display of work from the recent poetry week, with poems written by the children displayed in creative and artistic ways.
There was an amazing array of harvest gifts this year, as well as some truely stunning flower arrangements. We were also treated to a display farm to remind us of where some of our food comes from and the work of the farming community to keep us all fed.
All tinned and packaged food was donated to Truro Foodbank, whilst the fresh produce was gifted to people in the village.
Probus Art Exhibition – June 2017
Pictures from the preview evening of this year’s art exhibition, formally opened by Mr Shaun Perfect, headteacher of St Michael’s Helston. Probus Primary School also had a display of art work from their pupils.
Ascension Open Tower May 2017
Over 100 intrepid people made their way both up and down the tallest church tower in Cornwall last Saturday.
Despite a rainy start to the day the views were stunning and thanks to Alec Gibbs all those who were unable to make it on the day can get a taster.
Our Easter Garden, a message from Messy Church, a Lent Prayer station and of course some wonderful flowers all helped to give the message the Jesus Is Risen.
Thanks to all involved.

Beautiful flowers and a good selection of gifts to be distributed to those in need around the village.
