    Eternal God, our heavenly Father, we bless your holy name for all that you have given us in and through the life of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

    We give you thanks: for his long and full life; for his strength of character; and for his devotion and service to family, nation and Commonwealth.

    We praise you for: his generosity; the many contributions he made to our national life; and the encouragement he gave to so many, especially to the young.

    People have been worshipping in our beautiful parish church at least since the twelfth century.  As is so often the case in Cornwall, it is dedicated to a local saint, Ladoca in this case, who is reputed to have lived at nearby Fentonladock. 

    The church is situated impressively on a hill above the village.  The bulk of the building visible today dates from the fifteenth century.  Having fallen into disrepair, the church was lavishly restored by the then rector Canon Richard Wise in 1864.  The renowned Morris and Burne-Jones stained glass dates from this time.


    Ladock is in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and in the Deanery of Powder.  It is now part of the Probus Team of parishes, together with with St Erme, Probus and Grampound with Creed. 


    The church is usually kept unlocked during daylight hours throughout the year.


    The church has been at the centre of the parish community throughout its history and remains so to this day.  Visitors are always most welcome at all services and events.

    Keep us good Lord under the shadow of your mercy, in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort, knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    And may God bless us all.
