All Cluster Lent activities have been cancelled




Lent Reframed

This year we are reflecting on our journey in faith through the medium of art. We will be looking at a range of famous paintings and thinking about what the artist might be trying to express through their work.

There will be a number of weekday discussion groups using the same materials commencing the week beginning March 4th.
Wednesdays St Peter’s Newlyn 10.30 - 11.30am
Thursdays St Mary’s Pz 11am - 12 noon
Thursdays St Pol de Leon 12.30 - 2pm (with soup lunch)



Lent study book  “A future that’s bigger than the past”

A Future that’s Bigger than the Past by Revd Sam Wells.
The book’s six chapters were originally delivered as the Chalmers Lectures in which he  shares the vision of the church as imagined by HeartEdge, the growing network of churches established by St Martin in the Fields. This movement focuses on four aspects needed for renewing the mission activity of the church: commerce, culture, congregation and compassion. The book  explores the practical outworking of this vision.


There will be discussion groups meeting at St Mary’s over a pasty lunch where you can share your impressions of the book.
St Mary’s Church Pz March 3rd & April 7th at 12 noon.

On Sundays in Lent we will be exploring the 4Cs in the book
March 1st - Culture
March 8th - Commerce
March 15th  - Congregation
March  29th - Compassion


A HeartEdge conference, led by Revd Sam Wells  will be hosted by the Penlee Cluster on April 29th.

“This Lent, we hope both adults and children might engage in God’s plea for us to “Care for Creation”. It is an opportunity for us to rebuild our relationship with our planet, and in turn with the God who is Lord of everything. During this time, we hope you might engage in prayer, learn more about the remarkable world we have been given and build habits that last beyond the season to protect and honour the earth.”

Archbishop Justin Welby &
Archbishop John Sentamu


#LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation is the Church of England's Lent Campaign for 2020. With weekly themes shaped around the first Genesis account of creation, it explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. This year’s #LiveLent challenge offers 40 short reflections and suggested actions to help you, your family and your church live in greater harmony with God, neighbour and nature.  It has been inspired and informed by the Archbishop of Canterbury's 2020 Lent Book, Saying Yes to Life by Ruth Valerio (SPCK).

Green Discipleship for Cornwall

This four week course is designed to help Christian groups think through the environmental crisis facing us today from a Christian perspective and to begin to make some decisions about the changes to all our lifestyles that so urgently need to be made. The course can be used over any four or five week period, but it is offered here particularly for use in Lent 2020, following the Archbishop of Canterbury’s encouragement to the whole Church of England to make caring for God’s creation a focus of our Lent reflections in 2020.
