Cornerstone Church is the HUB of our
town. It is the central meeting point for people of all ages from the very
young to the not so young!
Our weekly itinerary is as follows:
Doors open at 10am wherein you will find a genuine warm welcome, always
accompanied by a smile, and copious amounts of coffee/tea and biscuits,
for which we are grateful for a small donation.
Ladies, you have to be quick if you want a pink wafer, as the men are like
locusts where these are concerned!
From 10am to 11am, you will hear a lot of chatter and a great deal of
laughter! (We are a noisy bunch…men and women!)
Having pulled the tables together, it feels like an extension of our own
blood family…but yet different.
At 11am a member of the church begins an informal worship, the subject of
which is left to the person taking it. It is always light hearted and
varied, followed by some discussion from whoever likes to speak. One does
not HAVE to…but you know, we like to talk!!
At this informal `get together` we have regular attendees who do not come
to church services, so it is a very worth while event.
More chatter, more banter followed by more laughter and `goodbyes` until
Doors open at 10am to 11.30am again. Today is just for fellowship. This is
VERY important, as many of the people who attend may not have family
around them, thus feeling lonely and it might be the only regular contact
they may have all week. Others may have troubles of sorts and appreciate a
chat with someone. If it is of a confidential nature, then it would always
Others simply love the company of very special people who care and like to
laugh a lot! We also enjoy the company of some members from St. James
Church and the Roman Catholic Church, and we are like one big happy family
where the `titles` of where and how we worship are lost and we come
together on these mornings I am sure, as Jesus would have wanted us to.
After all, we all worship the one GOD but simply go about it in different
Cornerstone has the reputation of being so friendly and welcoming. Of
course, this is down to its members. Bricks and mortar make the buildings

Rev: John was talking of the very apparent love and friendship we have in
our church ….and we do.
Doors are open from approx: 9.30am, wherein you will find the above
Today will last until approx: 11.45am. The donations for the said
refreshments will go to whichever organisation is leading the morning, as
there are several groups such as helpers for Arthritis, The Rame
Peninsular Men's Choir, and once a month it will be for our church.
At all these events on Saturday's you will find stalls of
bric-a-brac and freshly home made
cakes! Some mornings are accompanied by the FerryBoaters singers who give
their time for free.
As you can see, it is a well used building by a lot of organisations. But
most of all it has the love and fellowship that is so very hard to capture
with words. One simply HAS to experience it for oneself.
