Cards for Good Causes

Cards for Good Causes @ FMC

Falmouth Cards for Good Causes is open! It is at Falmouth Methodist Church, open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday until the 11th December.

Lots of cards from about 25 charities and some gift ideas, wrapping and stationery. We also have advent calendars. 

Rev Robbie Bowen

It is with great sadness that we announce that our Superintendent Minister, Rev Robbie Bowen, died on Sunday 25th October after a long illness. He was a much loved minister and friend. Robbie served the Church in Sierra Leone and in the Gambia, both in West Africa, before returning to the UK and taking up Circuit Ministry in Yorkshire, Cheshire, then finally, Falmouth and Gwennap.

Something Precious

Something Precious

 In the attached photographs you will be able to view just a small selection of some of the items brought to church for our service yesterday. The service was entitled ‘Something Precious’ and all these things, and quite a few more were shown by their owners, who explained why they were precious. Many had memories of people attached to them, others had significant events associated with them.


I am the bread of life...Harvest

The church beautifully decorated with a range of colourful floral arrangements, windows filled with tinned goods and packets of food for the local Food Bank and artificially created vegetables made by Tracy and co, real ones not being permissible this year, our socially distanced Harvest service began.

Alternative Service

A psalm for FMC

For our first 'Alternative' Service, we created a psalm for today (see below). After listening to Psalm 80, we thought about aspects of FMC that we valued from its past and present, things that we regret about our church, and our concerns for the church and society. Animated discussion took place (socially distanced, of course!), and the feedback was collated by Deacon Jane, who transformed the comments into a modern-day psalm.

First service at FMC following lockdown

See I am doing a new thing......

With some things remarkably familiar and some things quite different we gathered today for the first service back in our church building since lockdown. With at least two chairs between each of us the service began. Hymns were played beautifully by David our organist, but no one sang. Andrew our Minister had to guess if people were smiling at him as we were all wearing face masks. And we offered a friendly wave to each other instead of shaking hands as a sign of the peace during a socially distanced communion.

We're back!

On Sunday 6th September at 10.30am we will be holding our first Sunday service in our church since March. It will be a service of Holy Communion. We will be taking all appropriate measures to ensure the safety of all those attending, including wearing face coverings, using hand sanitiser, and maintaining social distancing. We rejoice in being able to gather once again, even if we are unable to sing hymns or share refreshments yet.

Pictures and reports will follow!
