Trevithick Day is the biggest day in the calendar of the whole town of Camborne. It is always on the last Saturday in April and is to mark the connection of Richard Trevithick, the great steam engineer, and his association with the town. The main roads in the centre of the town are closed for Cornish dancing, stalls and street entertainment, and steam engines from all over the South West and beyond come for the celebration. Some years, the steam parade with engines large and small, processes up Fore Street (Camborne Hill), past the church building.
This is a great opportunity for us to engage with out community and we put on lots of activities. We engage one-to-one with people on the street, sharing with them the Good News of the Gospel, giving away free Bibles and Gospel tracts. Back in our building and our lovely garden area at Fore Street, we offer live music, free tea, coffee and cake, with a bar-be-que at lunch time. There are also many activities for the children, from face painting to crafts, games and outside toys, this year, there may even be an appearance of some puppets!
