malcolm jones1A message from Reverend Malcolm Jones
Circuit Superintendant Minister


Please look around the web pages, of course, but I hope you will also get the chance to meet some of our 550 plus members and worship with us in one of our 15 Churches and Chapels too.


You can find us between the Devon Border and the edge of Bodmin Moor, so farming affects most of our livelihoods. You will see that some of our rural congregations number less than a dozen, while Central in Launceston has over 220 members and a healthy number of children too. I feel that this kind of variety is healthy and it allows our various strengths to be used well in the Lord's name.


We value the faith and commitment of previous generations, on whose work we seek to build and we hope and pray that our own vision for the mission of Jesus will break new bounds in it's turn.


When John Wesley used to visit the cottage at Trewint, he was being bold for Jesus Christ and we want to follow his lead in our own time and place.
