Unless more people start using the village shop there is a strong possibility it will close. In recent years sales have dropped due to increased local competition. If those that would like it to continue just spent a few pounds in the shop each week it could reduce the risk of closure. If it closes the village also loses its Post Office, which is now very important for banking services, the Tea Room and a social place to buy your newspapers, magazines and groceries.
The next film will be “Bohemian Rhapsody” this Saturday October 12 at the St Erth Church Hall (Old School). Doors open 7pm, Film 7.30pm. Entry £3 for members, £6 including membership for the initial viewing. Membership forms are available from the village shop or from Joyce Darvell 757169.

Then enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat with this week's refreshment hosts; St Erth Nursery.

Last Sunday’s worship was led by Mr K Rule with Mrs Pamela Williams the organist.  Ken read from Exodus ch.6 v1-13 the story of God telling Moses how he would redeem the Israelites from the Egyptians.  Ken talked about redemption how God told Moses that the people must kill a perfect lamb and spread the blood over the doorposts so that where the blood was those people would be saved.  For today the blood of Jesus redeems us and guarantees us eternal life if we are willing to ask for forgiveness and believe by faith in the saving grace of Jesus.
