Churches

CHURCH OPENING:
St. Erme Church is now open during daylight hours.

The church is open 9am—7pm (March to September), and 9am—5pm (October – February). These times are approximate.

July starts with the Feast of St Thomas on 3rd July. With the ordinations of priests and deacons taking place at Petertide at the end of June, the feast of St Thomas often marks the first Holy Communion of a new priest.
The day therefore resonates with many. I remember presiding at my first Holy Communion on the Feast of St Thomas in 2016 and the enormous sense of privilege at leading the church in an act of worship that has been celebrated continually for two thousand years.
St Thomas the apostle is a man who we can all look to for hope and encouragement. St Thomas famously known as Doubting Thomas, doubted the resurrection of our Lord. A reminder that we can all, at times, struggle with faith. It is often said that the opposite of faith is certainty and so to have doubt is only natural in the life of faith. We look to St Thomas for encouragement, hearing the Lord’s words ‘Do not doubt, but believe’ not simply for Thomas but for ourselves in times when faith seems a challenge.

Groups

The Silver Circle are delighted to announce that ‘Singing for the Brain’ has now compleated 4 sessions and is being very much enjoyed. This new event is being held EVERY WEDNESDAY afternoon, 2.30pm at the Trispen Chapel Sunday School room and is open to anyone in Trispen or St Erme. Singing has been proven to stimulate the brain and is helpful to people of all ages and regardless of state of health.
In addition exercise classes are still well attended on 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 10.30am, same Chapel venue – again all are welcome.
In May our main meeting was entitled ‘Fun and Games’ and it surely was. Members made up 4 teams and worked their way around the hall taking part in 5 different games, racking up points as they went along. The winning team were well rewarded and the best individual player of the afternoon also received a prize.
Our minibus outing in May took us to Senen Cove and Lands End. Wonderful Art Galleries at Senen and enough wind at Lands End to blow away all the cobwebs!
June saw the return of Mike and His Mates who entertained us with great gusto – there was much singing and laughter – a good afternoon.
We are always pleased to see them.
On the 8th, 16 members attended the Royal Cornwall Show thanks to the endevours of Age UK.
The June outing took us to the Wenford & Bodmin Railway where we went back to childhood memories of ‘clackety clack’ wheels and a very distinct smell. A lovely sunny afternoon spent rolling through lovely scenery.
Despite all of our activities we still need help with setting up the hall. PLEASE!!!
Activities take place every Wednesday and Thursday – do join us.

In May the St Erme WI welcomed Mr M Edwards and Mr D Ruse to the meeting. Both are former employees of Lakes Pottery, in Truro. We learned a great deal about the history of this much loved pottery which played a large part in the life of old Truro. The many artifacts that they brought with them took many of us back to childhood.
Following refreshments, members discussed this years resolutions which are to go forward to the National Annual General Meeting which will be held in Bournemouth in June. Members voted unanimously in favour of both resolutions.
Members had been looking forward to welcoming Mrs Susan Symons as our speaker in June. We were not disappointed as we learnt the final chapters in the life of Queen Victoria. We were delighted to learn that Susan is developing new historical stories with which to entertain us in the future.
Our membership continues to grow and we are looking forward to a visit from Heyl Handbells in July and our regular outing to a theatrical production during August, while in September we shall enjoy a demonstration of Paper Craft.
Our meetings commence at 7.00pm sharp on the first Friday of each month at the Village Hall.
For more information or a new programme please call the secretary on 01872 263247.
