Midsummer Bonfire


Our Bonfire Celebration will be on Saturday, 23rd June, and we plan to light the bonfire at 8.00 p.m.   Our Mayor has been invited to light the bonfire, and we have a ‘Lady of the Flowers’ to complete our Ceremony.


Pasties will be on sale during the evening.


There will be music and singing, so do come along and share this special evening with us.


We meet on top of CHAPEL CARN BREA.   Directions will be found at various points around St Just.   From St Just you take the Sennen/Land’s End Road, the B3306.   Just past the aerodrome you turn left to Crows-an-Wra.   Continue up the hill, and Chapel Carn Brea is on the right.  There is a car park but, if full, you can park on the road.   You then walk up to the top of the Carn.   If you are coming from the Penzance area on the A30, you continue towards Land’s End, and take the right hand turn once you reach Crows-an-Wra.    The Chapel Carn Brea will then be on your left as you get to the top of the hill.

St Just The John Harry Award 2018 PROGRAMME

Helston OCS in St Just


A group from Helston OCS visited St Just today, and it proved to be a most successful and enjoyable occasion.

The group were given a talk in St Just Church by Mrs Gillian Hocking, who is our Vice President and a Church Warden. Our President, Mr Doug Luxford then led us to the first society House of the Methodists, and then to our Medieval Plen-en-Gwary where John Wesley had preached.   We were then shown war damage, where a house was destroyed by a German ‘plane landing on it, and down the road damage to the roof of the Sunday School because one of the engines had broken off the ‘plane and landed on the roof.    


Our next stop was the huge Wesleyan Chapel where Doug gave a comprehensive description of the history of this iconic building.


A pasty awaited all in the adjoining hall, where everyone settled down to enjoy the excellent pasties and to chat.  It was a most successful visit enjoyed by all, and it is to be hoped that future such visits can be enjoyed.
