WE’RE ON THE MOVE!
The last service at Beachfield Avenue was held on October 4th 2015, led by our superintendent minister the Revd Simon Clarke. This church has been our temporary home since the 3 churches of Colan, Wesley and Claremont joined together about 6 years ago. The time has now come to sell the building to help fund our new build in the Newquay growth area called Nansleden on the outskirts of town.
The following week, October 11th, we met in our new temporary home at Bishops School, Treninnick Hill, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 2SR. where there is plenty of parking in the grounds and the road side parking bay. This service was the 6th anniversary of Newquay Methodist Church, led by former minister the Revd Celia Phillips. We expect to remain here for the next couple of years and give a big ‘Thank you’ to the school for their welcome and willingness to accommodate us.

BLESSING AND PICNIC
On Sunday August 23rd over 30 members of our congregation went to the site of our new church and held a short service of blessing as we claimed the ground for God and prayed for all those working on the site and rest of the estate. After several days of rain the ground was a bit soggy but the sunshine was warm as we sang and ‘planted’ a temporary cross where we estimated the church will be. Afterwards we enjoyed a picnic with many keeping their chairs on the solid ground of the road (very sensible!) and others risking the bare earth with our picnic rugs. It was lovely to have our architect, Tricia Langdon, and her husband join us. Our minister Sandy, who had met with the Duchy land agent earlier, was able to tell us where the church would go, point out the public square, and show us the granite bridge that will take the new road past the church through to Hendra – you just needed a good imagination as you looked at the fields!

The cross is planted where the church will grow.

This is where it begins…The cross is planted where the church will grow.

The Picnic

Altogether it was a very encouraging afternoon as we saw signs that our new church really is going to happen. We still have much fund raising to do but it’s all getting very exciting as we plan the kitchen, AV system, and lighting! Watch this space for further news!
