26th May 2019 - 9th Jun 2019

Welcome back, Chris!

Our service on Sunday 26th May 2019 was led by Chris James whose recovery from serious illness has been remarkable. Many people will recall that Chris was taken ill during the service that he was leading on 9th December 2018 and resulted in him being airlifted to Derriford Hospital.

Chris received immediate temporary treatment but then had to wait several months before being able to undergo remedial heart surgery which took place a few weeks ago. Although still not back to full health, Chris was keen to lead our service and he received a round of applause from congregation members when he related details of the emotional journey that both he and his wife, June, had been through since the onset of his illness. In gratitude for the medical attention that he had received, he dedicated the service to the NHS.

Christian Aid - thank you

We would like to thank all who donated to the Christian Aid appeal during the week of 12th-18th May 2019. A total of £220.45 was raised and this will be put to good use, especially helping expectant mothers in western Africa to receive appropriate maternity care. 

9th May 2019 - 19th May 2019

Christian Aid week

St Paul's Church, in common with churches of many faiths across the country, will be taking part in Christian Aid week, which runs from 12th - 18th May 2019.

From Christian Aid's website, this is what they say about their aims:

"Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

We work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.

We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes."

One of the targets for Christian Aid's assistance this year will be the mothers-to-be in Africa (especially Sierra Leone) who risk death during childbirth due to the lack of availability of maternity facilities.

Volunteers from St Paul's Church will be distributing Christian Aid envelopes during the week mentioned above. They will carry identification so that householders can be sure that they are collecting for a genuine organisation.

Church clock back in action

St Paul's worshippers as well as Landkey residents, especially those who live on the western side of the village, may have noticed that the church clock has recently begun chiming again.

A lightning strike on the church in January 2015 caused damage to the clock and this has taken quite a while to repair fully. The clock was brought back into service a year or so after being damaged but then suffered further (minor) damage when repairs to its cement surround were being carried out.

A clock specialist was brought in recently and has managed to restart the mechanism and we hope that the clock will continue to run as smoothly as it did before falling victim to the vagaries of the weather.

Easter Sunday - enjoyed by many

Our Easter Sunday service was a truly joyful occasion with the pews well occupied and the members of the congregation determined to sing up and give fulsome responses to the liturgy as we celebrated the risen Christ.

It was good to see so many people in church on this special day which, as a bonus, proved to be unseasonably warm and sunny. Angela Bellamy had made Easter-themed cakes and these were consumed appreciatively after the service.

It was also the 16th birthday of congregation-member, George Wilks, and Bob Loveridge played "Happy Birthday" to him on the organ, accompanied by further enthusiastic signing from St Paul's worshippers!

 

14th Apr 2019 - 21st Apr 2019
