As some of the action took place in and around Lostwithiel, this subject has local as well as national interest: and civil war has become topical globally.

About John Jenkin: Born in 1928 and raised in Newlyn, John qualified as a Radio Officer, spent two years with the Royal Navy near Hiroshima, six years in the Merchant Navy tramping the world in cargo ships (with time to read history books), and three years at Land's End Radio. At the age of 29 he retrained and embarked on a teaching career. For the 16 years prior to his retirement in 1990 he was Head at St Petroc's Church Junior School, Bodmin. He has been a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd for 46 years and served for ten years as its Secretary. His written work includes a book on Cornish history for school children and a comprehensive history of Newlyn.

The St Petersburg Blagovest Ensemble are six young professional musicians singing a cappella, with a programme combining Russian Orthodox sacred music and Russian folk song. On their fourth tour in Cornwall they are delighted to be invited back to St Fimbarrus, where last year they sang to a near capacity audience with a standing ovation. They are equally excited to be performing for the first time in St Bartholomew with its excellent acoustics. In both churches the Friends will be providing refreshments during the evening.
Rimsky-Korsakov: We Hymn Thee No 4 in G

She was clothed as a novice on St Francis' Day, 4 October 2003, taking the name Liz. Now she has agreed to come back and give a talk about her call to the religious life and what it involves. There will be an interval with a glass of wine and light refreshments followed by a brief Power Point presentation and then an opportunity to ask her questions and interact with her informally.
