Family Teatime Services

Twice a month there are Family Teatime Services on Sunday at 4pm at St Saviour’s, Trevone (on the second Sunday of the month) and at St Petroc’s, Padstow (on the fourth Sunday of the month). These have songs, stories and activities and end with food and drink. Each service has a theme and is led by a music group and our worship leaders.

Confirmation Group

Children and adults are prepared for confirmation in our parishes. Our most recent group explored the Christian Faith, went on pilgrimage from Little Petherick to Padstow, visited Padstow Lifeboat Station, walked to St Saviour’s, Trevone for an interpreted Eucharist and had a meal at the Rectory. They were confirmed in Truro Cathedral by Bishop Philip and made their first Holy Communion at St Petroc’s, Padstow. If you are interested in confirmation, speak to the Rector or Benefice Administrator.

JAM Club (Jesus & Me)

Every Sunday morning at St Petroc’s, Padstow 11.00am-12.00pm (except the fourth Sunday of the month when there is a child- friendly Teatime Service at 3.45pm). Please drop the children in the church rooms for activities relating to the church calendar for that Sunday. They will join the service in church for a blessing at the altar rail. Please collect them from the church at 12pm.

Open the Book

A group in St Issey Parish regularly visits St Issey Church of England Primary School to tell and act our Bible stories using the popular Open the Book scheme developed by the Bible Society – for more information click here. It is hoped to form new groups from our parishes to visit Padstow and St Merryn Primary Schools – contact the Revd Fiona Giorla.
