We are a friendly group of Christians based in Albaston, Cornwall in the Tamar Valley (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

This website was last updated on SATURDAY July 11th

As, hopefully, we begin to emerge from the worst of the Covid19 crisis, we and many other churches are looking forward to the day when we can be fully open again.  

Some of us have been meeting on Sundays, in groups of up to 6, ir our gardens for short services.  

If you would like to join us in our gardens, or would like to be kept informed of plans for Chapel re-opening, please click here and leave us a message.

Meanwhile, we continue to look for ways to help our community both through prayer and positive actions.  Let us know if we can help in any way.

Jesus says I am with you

The displays outside our church buildings shows that, although the buildings are closed and we can no longer all meet together, the Church is still alive.  We are here to pray for, and to help, our community.

Sadly, due to the Covid19 virus, there will be NO activities in our church buildings for the time being (though that might soon change).  However we keep in contact using our phones, email and these web pages.  And we can, and must, pray for one another and our community.

This July we heard again from Margaret and Celestin in CHAD - click here to read their news.

On Sundays why not join friends from Truro Methodist Church either at 9.22 (for a service with modern hymns) or at 11.00 for a service with more traditional hymns.  In both cases of course no congregation will be present.  For the 9.22 service click here OR click here for the 11 o'clock service  (In both cases services can be watched later by clicking the appropriate place above).

Alternatively you could use the 'home' service from our Minister,  Rev David Moss.  A copy of the service for 21st June can be downloaded by clicking here. 

You can also see and hear Rev. Steve Wild each day as he shares a short daily short reflection - to see this please click here

Our news section (called "NEWS of Friends & Members") is on our banner at the top of this page.  We hope this will be a way of keeping some of us in touch.

If you live locally please also use the Contact Us page to pass on any requests (including prayer requests).  Please also use the contact us page to request copies of our Minister's Pastoral Letter.

Sunday March 22nd and until further notice - services cancelled (see above)

Jesus said "Come to me, all of you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest. 

Become my servants and learn from me. ...You will find rest for your souls." [Matthew 11 v28-29]
