Alison joined us in the parish in April 2018.
A little about me: My family farm locally and before I became a parish priest I spent the greater part of my life as a sheep farmer just outside Launceston. We used to be regular suppliers to the abattoir at Newport, and before that I can just remember the weekly livestock market on Race Hill at which my mother sold calves and goats’ cheese. Launceston has changed a great deal since the old town market days. The churches in and around Launceston have also changed. I hope you will find something in the mix of traditional and contemporary worship to engage with a God who is ever-constant and eternally loving.
Revd Alison Hardy
Assistant Curate - Revd. Teresa Folland
Teresa Joined Launceston Parish as our curate in July 2016.
Being Cornish born and bred, she is proud to be serving her curacy at the gateway to Cornwall.
Teresa spent a number of years working in banking, venturing as far away as Bristol before being drawn back to the county of her birth.
Following that career, she worked as a Family Pastoral Worker for St Martin’s Church in Liskeard and
continued to work there whilst training with SWMTC for ordination.
Teresa was ordained Deacon on 1st July 2016 and Priest on 1st July 2017.
Within the Parish are the four churches each with their own individual character, but coming together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
While the Parish continues to build its relationship as a single Christian community, the town (and indeed the county) has a very strong sense of community.
