Walking the St Winnow Way, Bank Holiday Monday, 28th August 2017

Tuesday 29th August 2017

What a wonderful Bank Holiday! 

St Winnow Parish Church could not have wished for better weather or for greater support in walking the St Winnow Way and for all of our visitors. So many thanks go to so many people and groups who helped bring the day into fruition, culminating with the first public ringing of our ten lovely new bells. We even featured on BBC Spotlight!  

Every contribution in donation or deed has been so valued and appreciated. The seed of a remarkable and creative vision turning into an audible and visible reality is a marvelous thing to witness and we are so proud of our journey and community spirit, far and wide.  Proud to have been a part of it.  

However, whilst our appeal for our funding gap goes on, this is not the end of our project.  But, perhaps more excitingly, the beginnings of something much further extending.  At St Winnow we talk about the stones of our building and the people being the living stones.  The buildings of our Benefice simply came alive on Monday, packed to the rafters.  People of all ages, backgrounds, beliefs; no boundaries.  Simply a sense of togetherness, achievement, community bonding, fellowship, comradeship, reuniting; the hope and inspiration for this to continue.  To keep our wonderful heritage alive.  Surely the greatest achievement and gift.  Priceless.  
Thank you all!
