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.
