God who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds. Hebrews 1. 1 – 2

General Church Meeting on the 18th June at 7pm. This is an open meeting to which all who attend the Church are encouraged to attend. Group leaders need to prepare a 2 minute verbal report to be shared at the meeting. This is a very important meeting within the life of the Church as it considers the life and ministry of the Church as it receives the financial position of the Church; any reports of groups and appoints Church Stewards and Church Council members. The current Church Stewards are: Andrew Care, Susan Care, Joel Perkin, Peter James, Stephen Trevorrow and Beth Amess. The current Church Council members are: Doreen Barber, Mary Cowling and Ruth Trevorrow with Maurice Jackson co-opted as a non member. This meeting is crucial for the continuation of the Church’s witness of God’s relevance in St Ives.

Our prayers go out to Brenda Jenkyn and family, and also to Howard and Vivien Jenkyn, following the death of Edward last Wednesday. For him ‘it is far better’ but his passing leaves much sorrow. The funeral of Edward is expected to take place in the Chapel at noon on this coming Friday, 21st June.
Congratulations to Robert and Beth Amess who will celebrate their Golden Wedding on this coming Friday. We give thanks to the Lord for His goodness to them over many years.

Please will you pray for the coming Conference in Birmingham from 27th June to 4th July. A report from the ‘Marriage Relationship Task Force’ is to be voted on. May the Holy Spirit ‘intercede for us with groans that words cannot express.’ Rom. 8.26
Elizabeth Veal has been making enquiries about venues for our Christmas Lunch. It is proving to be very difficult, Carbis Bay Hotel is available for us, but the cost this year would be £23 for 3 courses. ‘2 courses’ is not an option! It seems as if there is nowhere else (with parking, no stairs etc), so Elizabeth would like feedback as to whether she should go ahead with this booking. Please speak to Elizabeth if you have any different ideas.
This May saw ‘Bespoke Peoples Mission’ weekend ending with ‘Band Tea’ hit St Ives. God had spoken to me (Nathan) over 8 years ago stating that the Band Tea Weekend would be His. We dreamed, prayed, spoke and prophesied His promises over our town and the Island for many years – trusting that ‘The testimony of Jesus IS the Spirit of prophecy’ Rev. 19.10, and that what He says shall come to pass if we – as ambassadors – believe, become, declare and live out what we are supposed to! And I give a huge humble Thank you to you – whatever you did, whether practically, or spiritually, be it prayer or simply believing with us that God has a plan for St Ives. I Thank you! Without our coming together as one, there would be no power or spiritual authority in what we said and did! God has been waiting……He chooses to get His bride right first before He uses us to change this town/county/nation! Let us guard our hearts and believe that the best is yet to come! To the Glory of Christ our Saviour, For the unity of the Cornish Bride, And the salvation of many souls. Nathan.
The freewill offering last Sunday amounted to £484.20 and £49 for the Church Hall costs.
