    THE FEAST OF ST. LADOCA. 10th January 2021

    On this our Feast Sunday we thank you Lord for our Patron Saint Ladoca.  We know so little about her but we are so grateful for all that she started here in this ancient valley all those years ago and for all the many souls who have maintained this lovely Church ever since and kept alight the wonder of your presence and spread the Word of your love down the centuries.  Barbara

    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.
