News from Frank and Evelyn

We understand some kind people have enquired recently as to why we have not returned to Chapel Street. Due to Evelyn’s past treatment for Aplastic Anaemia she has been advised by doctors to continue to shield, especially at this time with Covid being so high in Penzance. This means that Frank has had to limit his contact with people as much as is practically possible. Along with this advice, we also care for Evelyn’s ninety-year-old mother, who is extremely vulnerable to Covid. She has a heart condition and is becoming increasingly frail.

We have been very appreciative of our home group who have supported us faithfully, as well as friends who have known of the situation we find ourselves in.

We continue to pray that God will to bless you all when you come together Sunday by Sunday to worship.

God Bless, Frank and Evelyn
