Places for St Peters Foundation
St Peter's Foundation, the residential intentional community, is advertising for new recruits as from this month. We are looking to fill four places ifor the house in Malborough village. Residents will follow a life of prayer, study and work while living community.
Gospel Choir Rocks Church
Salcombe Community Gospel Choir raised over £1,800 for the Church on Saturday evening in a fantastic concert. Led by Caroline Evans and Frances French the choir began nine years ago as a small group meeting in the vicarage. With new songs to their repertoire, including some Negro spirituals, the sixty strong choir rocked the church in a wonderful evening enjoyed by all. The church was packed and we ran out of chairs!
Father Daniel commented at the end of the evening that this choir had, over the years, brought so much happiness to the community and that this musical evening was so very appropriate to Pentecost-eve.
A guest appearance was given to Ed Hill, a member of St Peter's Foundation who sang two songs before the intermission accompanied by Malborough parishioner, Jane Brannan.
Many thanks to all those involved!

Join the Friends
Friends of Holy Trinity is an independent charity and currently is seeking new blood to eventually take over the task over the organisation of the Friends. It is not an onerous task but worthwhile in building up funds for the future maintenance of the building. There will be a grand draw at a cream tea on 20th August. Volunteers will be required on Saturday mornings to sell these from May onwards. Also, the sixth Ken Reed concert is organised for 14th October. Jonathan Delbridge will perform a variety of music on piano and the organ.
Harvest Thanksgiving - Cafe style!
The Church was packed for our annual Harvest Thanksgiving as we thanked God for the abundance of His gifts to us. We wanted especially to thank all those who have helped in any way the work and worship of our church.
The Church was reordered for the day with cafe-style tables for the service of Holy Communion and afterwards we stayed in our places to share lunch together. “Wonderfully different, and so appropriate” was just one of the comments after the event!
Thank you to everyone who made the day so special!
