Enjoying extensive premises, Delabole continues to play an important part in the life of this straggling Cornish Quarrying community. Worship is offered in both traditional and 'Cafe Church' styles, the latter attracting regular visitors from other churches and none. There are frequent social events as well as Bible Study and Discussion groups.
Delabole’s 30th Flower Festival
The theme for our theme Flower Festival in aid of Cornish Hospices was ‘Best of Cornish’ and many generous and talented local village organisations contributed flower displays which were truly imaginative, colourful and really captured the uniqueness of Cornwall.
The Festival was opened on Friday August 2nd by Rev. Bryan Ede and continued on Saturday when there was a Sunday School Re-union followed by the cutting of the celebration cake by Mrs. Patricia Molloy. Lunches, coffees and teas were served throughout the Festival by friends of the church.
Sunday’s morning worship was led by Rev Elizabeth Rundle, making a very welcomed return to the area. An afternoon concert by The Coastal Belles and The Boscastle Buoys was varied and entertaining (yet more local talent) - as was the evening musical performances by Jack Callow, Syd Mitchell, David Rashleigh, Gareth Rees and Alistair Taylor (entirely magical and an honour to be there) which followed a Songs of Praise and dedication of gifts by Rev. Bryan.
We really are a village blessed with talent and co-operation, not only shown in the flower displays, warm welcome and sumptuous food but also in the creation of two new works of art which are now gracing the chapel. Sue Ede had burnt the mid-night oil to complete a fabulous wall hanging to celebrate our 150 years and Nigel Hicks and Derek Hicks had pulled the stops out to make sure our second lovely lectern was ready for action over the week-end. If you’d like to see (and admire) the objets d'art, the chapel is open every Tuesday (11am - noon) for FoodBank collections and, of course, every Sunday at the same time. It’d be lovely to see you there.
