New Celtic Family Eucharist Service

We are very pleased to be able to offer a new Celtic Eucharist on the second Sunday of Every Month.

This is a new additional service at our beautiful isolated little church of St Mary Bradoc based on the Celtic liturgies of Iona and Northumbria reflecting our early Celtic Cornish Christianity.

St Bradanoc, a contemporary of St Columba, established our church as a chapel associated with St Winnow in C6th. In teh C14th our present church was rededicated to St Mary the Virgin.

There is little known about the life of St Bradanoc, who was one of three companions to St Winnow and who in the C7th is described as coming from distant lands.

We hope you will join us in this lovely spiritual family oriented service at 11:15 every month and which is additioal to our existing Eucharist at 11:15 on the fourth Sunday of every Month.
