St Gerrans - Recent Events
Pupils from Gerrans school spent the morning at church on 19th April. They took part in all kinds of activities as well as preparing their own services. When asked, the children said that they most enjoyed bell-ringing and playing the organ.
About 90 people gathered at our Harvest Breakfast Service at St Gerrans. We enjoyed a full English served in a bun followed by a service of thanksgiving. The children created a beautiful collage and led us in our prayers.
Burma Star Service
About 30 people gathered on the Lugger on 15th August VJ Day and the 71st anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Wreaths and flowers were laid by representatives of the Armed Forces and the local churches. Katie Bromwich, a teenager staying in the village this summer, kindly played The Last Post to signal the one minute’s silence. Our thanks go to Katie and to Martin Raven the Standard Bearer and to all who supported the Act of Remembrance. Katie and Martin are pictured above.

Royal Birthday Celebrations
The Royal Fete on Gerrans Green was bathed in sunshine as local people and holiday makers enjoyed sideshows, bought bargains and enjoyed delicious cream teas in The Royal Standard. Charities and local community organisations raised well in excess of £1000 thanks to the generosity of all who came. Thanks to all who helped to make the afternoon such a success.

Fun for everyone
On Sunday evening we were delighted welcome Monsignor Mark Miles (pictured above with His Holiness The Pope and HM The Queen) to our service of Choral Evensong. Father Mark was staying with friends in the parish.
As always it was a pleasure to be led in our worship by the Roseland Churches Choir.
The Roseland and Indian Queens Community Choirs joined together to give a fabulous and thoroughly enjoyable concert at St Gerran’s on Saturday night. Almost £700 was raised from donations for two Wadebridge organisations working to bring relief to refugees in Syria and Calais.
All are welcome to join the Roseland Community Choir, practices are on Wednesdays at 7.00pm at Tregony Church Hall.
Around 60 adults and 17 children gathered at St Gerrans Church for breakfast and a short service of thanksgiving on Sunday to celebrate the 90th birthday of her Majesty the Queen.
