AGM Report for 2022 coming soon!


Welcome to Churches Together in Penzance Area (CTIPA)

Representatives from Christian Churches and Associations come together and plan joint ecumenical services, events and activities which recognise our Christian unity.


This coming and working together as Christians benefit all members of our local communities. CTIPA is a means of sharing each others Christian faith and mission through services, events and social activities. Our prayer is simple.


Lord Jesus,

Who prayed that we might all be one,

We pray to you for the unity of Christians,

According to your will,

According to your means.

May your Spirit enable us

To experience the suffering caused by division,

To see our sin,

And to hope beyond all hope.

Amen

(A Chemin Neuf prayer)

The new Chair of Churches Together in Penzance Area is Karen Morozova, formerly the Vice-Chair. Karen has considerable experience working with Churches Together over many years and was instrumental in the setting up of two of its projects, The Penzance FoodBank and Penzance Street Pastors. Having served on the Executive for some time she is also looking forward to taking the Charity into the future as a strong expression of the commitment of Christians to the local community. As a recently retired social worker she has a particular care for those struggling to make ends meet and a clear awareness of the issues that affect our area.

As the churches gradually emerge from the effects of Covid, where despite reduced numbers and finance award winning and nationally recognised work of quality has been undertaken by church groups both through CTIPA and individually, Karen is keen for the churches to be more visible again, worshipping together and celebrating their faith socially in inclusive and enjoyable ways. Her last act as Vice chair was to organise the recent Volunteers' party at The Lugger. However, success depends on local churches re-establishing connection where that has been lost over the last couple of years and this can be done by messaging CTIPA through the present or soon to be relaunched websitechurchestogetherinpenzance.co.uk 

Examples of effective Christian outreach would be :-

The CTIPA Breakfast Project

which commenced its daily operation during the Autumn of 1999, serving breakfast weekdays to homeless clients in need.

The CTIPA Food Bank

which commenced October 2011 and has quickly grown to be an effective service to singles and families in need.

The CTIPA Street Pastors

working overnight at weekends since January 2013 to help keep young and older members of our community safe from unnecessary harm and trauma.

Primary School Assemblies

with "Open the Book" in Junior schools and School Chaplaincy work in secondary schools

The CTIPA Worship Group

folk from different Christian traditions coming together to organise and plan ecumenical events and services where the family of God in the Penzance Area can come to celebrate and worship together.
