A Parish Nurse for the Parishes of St Goran and St Michael, Caerhays.

The PCC at St Goran is embarking on an ambitious project which we hope will be of benefit to the whole community. Our vision is to provide a Parish Nurse to help people in this community achieve optimum health and wellbeing. The Parish Nurse will be employed, initially for 2 days per week for 3 years. To achieve this we will need to raise the necessary funds.

The Parish Nurse will be employed by the PCC of St Goran. The parish nursing service is recognised and supported by Parish Nursing Ministries UK (PNMUK). The Parish Nurse will be a registered nurse and will attend regular courses provided by PNMUK working towards full accreditation.

Our Parish nurse will liaise with GPs, Health Visitors, the Community Matron, voluntary services and other agencies, and our Pastoral Care team. Our vision will be fulfilled in the following ways:-

 

  • Supporting independence and improving quality of life through health education, care amd advice.
  • Home visits
  • Health education events
  • Assisting access to health, social services and other agencies as appropriate
  • Providing Spiritual support if requested  

There are more details of this exciting project under the "Parish Nurse" tab on this web site.

 

Fourth Sunday Communion at St Michael's Caerhays

Please note that the start time for the BCP Communion service on the 4th Sunday in the month will change to 8.30 a.m from 9.00 a.m. This is planned as a permanent change. Please also note that due to October having 5 Sundays and there being a Communion at St Michael's on the 5th Sunday there is no Communion the week before.

The Transition - UPDATE 21/07/2017

A new Priest has now officially been appointed to our Benefice. She is the Rev'd Anne Charlton currently rector at the Raleigh Mission Community in East Budleigh in Devon. Please see her brief introduction on our Homepage. Anne's Licensing service as Priest has been set for Saturday November 11th, starting at 2.00 p.m. In the meantime the life of the church will continue under God's care. 

We would still value your prayers during this whole period. There is a prayer you can use on the Homepage of this site.

During this time if you need to speak to the church for any reason but particularly to book a funeral, wedding or baptism please contact a Church Warden, or a Reader. Their numbers are on the Contacts page of this web site.  

Regular services are still being held. If you are wanting to attend any of our services please confirm via the calendar on this web site that they have not had to be cancelled. We are very grateful for those ministers who are helping us maintain our worship during this uncertain time.

HARVEST FESTIVALS AND REMEMBRANCE SERVICES FOR 2017

Dates have been set for the Harvest Festival services and the Remembrance Service in the Autumn. St Michael's leads the way with their Harvest Festival on Sunday 24th September. This starts at 11.00 a.m and will follow the order of BCP Morning Prayer. The Harvest Festival at St Goran is Sunday 8th October, and the Harvest of the Sea follows one week later at St Just. These services will be Eucharist services and start at the normal time of 10.15 a.m.

   Remembrance Sunday this year falls on Sunday 12th November. Our Remembrance Service starts at 10.45 a.m and we will gather at that time around the War Memorial for the 2 minute silence, before moving inside the church for the remainder of the service. This will be a non Eucharistic service. Please note if there is bad weather on the day the whole service will be in the church.

 

PCC AWAY DAY - REPORT

A biblically correct number of 12 people from the church went to the beautiful surroundings of Epiphany House in Truro on Monday 22nd May for the Away Day. The day was led by Arcdeacon Bill Stuart-White and Rebecca Evans from the Diocese Parish Resources team.  

During the morning Bill used an Iona Communion Service as a base for a session on Personal Disciplship, taking us back to the period afetr as the disciples waited for what we now know as Pentecost. The session ended with Communion in the round, and the whole morning was thoughtful and a good preparation for what was to follow.

Following an ample lunch Rebecca led us through Growing a Church, an aspect of Church Life that is very appropriate to us given the new build and the transition period of awaiting a new Priest. Discussions were lively and ideas for new projects for our Christian Service were brought to the table. It will be exciting to see what results.  

It was a very beneficial day, Epiphany House were excellent hosts, and Bill and Rebecca were enthusiastic and thought provoking leaders. We thank them all for helping us learn more of walk with God as individuals and as a Church.
