Meet Our Clergy

Diocese: Truro


Deanery: Trigg Major

Benefice: Launceston







Parish population 7,500


Launceston
is Cornwall's ancient capital


The Norman Castle was built here in 1070 by Robert, Earl of Mortain,
the half brother of
William the Conquerer ​


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.​​

Who are we?

About the Parish

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.

Launceston

Just over a year and a half ago we were blessed with the gift of Teresa, the Parish Curate.

She moved to Launceston with her husband Michael and Son and is currently serving her curacy title.

Teresa trained with the South West Ministry Training Course and was ordained deacon in Truro Cathedral on Friday 1st July 2016. She was priested in July 2017 and is currently in charge of the Parish.


Teresa’s day off is a Friday.
