SLATES FOR THE ROOF OF ST CUBERT PARISH CHURCH

St Cubert Church was founded by St Cubert, a Welsh missionary who came to Cornwall with St Carantoc in the 7th C. This part of Cornwall has extensive sand dunes and very close by there is the Oratory of St Piran, once buried in the sand, but now uncovered, thought to be the earliest Christian building still surviving in the British Isles. The church of St Cubert is located in the centre of the village of St Cubert and its picturesque spire dominates the landscape for miles around, and was used as a day mark by shipping until the mid 20th C.  As part of the rich heritage of the Celtic Saints, the church is both architecturally and historically of interest and recently we have received  grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and other funders, to do a major restoration project on this our local church.

However, we still need to raise more money so we thought that people might like to sponsor the slates for the roof. So, for £5, you can have a slate inscribed with your name which would then be there to be found the next time the roof is repaired - hopefully not for many years! You would also be helping to conserve a beautiful and ancient building and one that is still very important to local families. Everyone who sponsors a slate will also have their name written in a book that will be kept in the church. You can also sponsor a slate in memory of someone, and sponsor as many slates as you would like! Please let us know your name and where you are from and if you would like to dedicate your slate to anyone by sending a message at the pledge site or emailing wendy@carines.com with your details. Thank you
