Holy Water Stoup/Font

With the help of the Church Sunday school, Canon Andrew dedicated the new stoup which has pride of place on the steps as you enter Holy Trinity church.

The Sunday school carried the water to be poured into the stoup and assisted Canon Andrew with the blessing of the salt and water at the beginning of the service.

The small decorative font, made from Portland stone was discovered in the crypt where it may have been hidden for many years.  Nobody seems to be certain from where it came.  Several theories have been submitted; however, it seems now likely that the font may have been the original font for Holy Trinity church before it was reordered many years ago.

“What is clear” said Canon Andrew, “is that it was created and used for baptism and it is fitting that we should use it once again for the purpose for which it was made”.

You can find the font/stoup as you enter the church and the holy water is for everyone to use by dipping their finger into it and making the sign of the cross to remind them of the day they received the sacrament of baptism and began their Christian journey of faith.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding came down at the end of June and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful; and we hope to be successful this November for a further grant of £8,000. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target to replenish our much diminished funds.. IF the sale of St Nicholas goes without a hitch then the PCC has agreed to make up the shortfall from the sale proceeds.

Vicar’s letter for October 2018

“I’m a country person at heart! I was brought up in a small country town in North Cornwall with a thriving market each week. Sadly it is all now long gone. But as children my brothers and I used to love to go to the livestock market and watch all the farmers bringing their livestock and produce to market. At Harvest thanksgiving we would take our harvest gifts to church and I remember a wonderful harvest choral evensong and a hearty harvest supper which everybody was involved with.”
