Lay Pastoral Ministry Update

The Trigg Major Deanery Lay Pastoral Ministry (LPM) Team which includes six members from the Launceston Parish has met several times over the last few months and they are now actively supporting a number of activities including the monthly services and fellowship in our local care homes, baptism and funeral visiting, the monthly Food 4 Thought café and Kids Club, Open the Book, Messy Church and the Tregadillett Memory Service.  

During the summer – John Timbury and Sarah Vinson attended additional training in the area of Bereavement Support and more recently, we now have some of the team licensed and trained to deliver Home Communion within the Parish.  

If you know of someone who would like a visit from the Church, perhaps someone who is housebound, lonely, someone who would like home communion – please get in touch with either Revd Teresa or any LPM.

Appointment of new Interim Parish Priest Announced 


We are excited to announce the appointment of Revd Alison Hardy of Stratton Deanery to the interim Parish Priest position this week. We are looking forward to hearing more about her in the coming weeks. 

"Can I say a very big thank you for the bible and cheque I received during the Parish Eucharist last Sunday when Tim and I said our official 'goodbyes' . The illustrated bible was just what I wanted and made all the more special with the illustrator having signed it. I am hoping to buy a laptop to use in my new parishes and use some of the money to commission a special piece as a prayer station, all elements of your gift are much appreciated and will be very well used. 

Tim and I leave Launceston on Monday 11th December, but we will be around in the parish saying our goodbyes up until then. As I said on Sunday, Thank you all, for the gifts, for making us so welcome and for your love, support and encouragement throughout my ministry here. I will keep you all in my prayers and we will never forget our time in Launceston. 

God Bless, Love Jane x "
