PREVIOUS SPECIAL EVENTS.
The Chapel has a number of Christmas trees left over from the Carol Service and Christmas Tree Festival. They have spent their time with their bases in water and are still fresh. These are now for sale at £15 each and can be collected from the Chapel. Please telephone Viv Hocking on 01736 740345 for further information and to purchase.
FOR ONE DAY ONLY - so the TV sale adverts say; but here is one Carol Service with a difference that you will not want to miss. Why ? - because we are going to 'fire up' the 1864 Foster and Andrews organ. It is grade 2 listed on the Institute Register of Historic Pipe Organs. It is rarely used nowadays and together with David Philps as organist and the Phoenix Singers this occasion heralds the switching on of all the lights on the community Christmas trees decorated with the theme of Musicals in the Chapel. So make a note of Sunday 5th December at 3.00pm in St Erth Methodist Chapel with Rev Edwin Myers taking the service and any contributions to go direct to Action for Children.
Sunday's Messy Church is back on again. It is a joint venture between the two local St Erth Churches and is held on the last Sunday of each month between 4.00pm and 6.00pm.This is an ideal opportunity for Mums and Dads and other responsible family members to bring their young family for a fun packed session of simple table top games and crafts whereby they can get as messy as they like and learn by what they are doing; followed by a short family service aimed at the young ones and then finish with a hot cooked meal for everyone. Parents can relax while the children enjoy themselves and the whole experience is completely free of charge. This month's theme is 'Light up the Darkness' as a positive alternative to the Darkness of Halloween. All children must be accompanied by an adult please.
Who wants a child's bicycle for Christmas. We have been donated a Spiderman child's bike to sell to raise funds for charity. As far as I know it was bought for a 5 to 7 year old grandchild who did not get to grips with it and could not or would not ride it. It has spent some time in storage but is in near nigh perfect condition. It can be inspected in St Erth Chapel Hall on Saturdays during Farmers' Market hours. Price £50 or very near offer please.
Table Top Sale - St Erth Chapel Hall - Saturday 16th from 2-4pm
Lots of items including books, puzzles, child's spiderman bike & helmet as new, child's scooter, clothes and much more. If you would like to book a table please contact Viv on 01736 740345.
Below is a notice of a special service on 18th July 2021.
The Remembrance Sunday service which was due to be held in the Chapel has been cancelled in accordance with the Government coronavirus mandatory regulations. Please still remember those who fought and died for us and keep them in your prayers.
Every year the good people of St Erth support the Christmas Shoe Box appeal. Despite coronavirus, we are doing the same this year. Please bring your filled box; or just the contents for them, to the Chapel by November 8th 2020.
There are spare boxes at the Chapel. Your gift will give a child living in a war torn country or a poverty stricken country in Eastern Europe hope and faith in humanity as they experience the only gift they are likely to get.
The Annual Remembrance Service will take place on Sunday 8th November 2020 with a gathering around the St Erth War Memorial at 10.45 am in time for the usual one minute's silence. A united service will be held in the Chapel immediately afterwards lead by Alex Sheffield. All of the proceedings will be conducted in accordance with the Government coronavirus guidelines and mandatory regulations.
The Annual 2019 St Erth Christmas Tree Carol Service was Sunday 8th December at 3.00pm at the St Erth Methodist Church. There were traditional carols sung to the accompaniment of St Erth Concert Band with a choir and a short service followed with free mince pies and tea and coffee in the Methodist Hall. Everybody took this opportunity to see all the locally decorated Christmas trees following a theme of children's books. The display was open to the public from Saturday 7th December from the official switch on until 8.00pm and then from Monday to Saturday on a daily basis from 2.00pm to 5.00pm and 7.00pm to 8.00pm.
