June 2024 Ladock News - messages from our Team Curate and Churchwarden

Ladock News, June 2024


A word from the Curate

It has been nearly four years now since, in between lockdowns, we followed God’s call to move to Tresillian as I was licensed as curate for the churches of Probus, Ladock, Grampound with Creed and St Erme. That license was for four years and it comes to an end this Summer and so we will be moving on at some point within the next few months. At the time of writing, I’m still not quite sure where we’ll be headed next but I know that God has a post for me and fruitful work for us to do wherever that may be. We will greatly miss the people of the Benefice who we have come to know and love over these years. The process of appointing a replacement for Joachim is underway and so hopefully a new Rector covering all the churches will soon be in post. Reverend Linda and Canon Pat Robson will of course continue with their much-valued ministry in all the parishes but during this season of change I would maybe like to ask you what God might be calling you to. Perhaps there’s a place for you in your local church; not just in terms of filling a rota of chores, but in terms of joining a family continually on the move as God calls them to be a blessing to the community.

Ringing Out for Peace

6 June 2024 marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces mounted the largest amphibious invasion the world has ever witnessed. In 1944, Operation Overlord saw over 5,000 ships and landing craft set down more than 130,000 troops on five Normandy beaches in an action that would bring about the liberation of north-west Europe.

As part of the wider commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings, our ringers will be Ringing Out for Peace 6th June between 6.30 pm and 7.00 pm. This will be followed by a short service of Evening Prayer to mark the occasion, which everyone in the village and wider Benefice is welcome to attend.



June Coffee Morning

There will be NO coffee morning in the Hall on Saturday June 1, to enable everyone to devote their energies to preparation for the Church Fete. The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 6 July, therefore.
