Volunteer?

Would you like to volunteer in your local church? There are many different ways to help out such as serving refreshments, welcoming people, helping with maintenance or taking on a role on the church council. If you are already a member of the congregation looking to step into a new role please don’t hesitate to contact Revd Nicki for more information and a role description. If you a member of the community that would like to support the local church then you are very welcome to come along to find out more about how you can help. If you are interested, please contact either the Rector, Revd Nicola Farr or the local Churchwarden where we will be able to provide details of the application process.

Welcome Nicki!

On 7th March 2024 we welcomed Revd Nicki Farr as our Rector and Pioneer Minister.

Rev Nicki writes:

It is with great excitement that I prepare to serve and minister in your churches and communities as your new Rector and Pioneer Priest. I look forward to meeting you soon and getting to know you, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself….

I grew up in Hampshire with my parents and older brother where I regularly attended Church and Sunday School. During my teenage years, I engaged in a wide variety of different activities and hobbies and did not actively make room for God in my life so gradually drifted away from church.

In 1988, I married Andrew and after we moved to Cornwall, I felt a strong sense that God was calling me back to Him, so Andrew and I started attending St Mary’s Church in Callington.

After a few years of working in Lloyds Bank, I then became a full-time mum to our four daughters, Bethany, Kirsty, Rachel and Holly. Whilst they were growing up, I began my woodwind teaching practice. I found great joy in teaching many students to play instruments, helping them enjoy the love of music-making. I enjoy playing my clarinet with friends and as part of an orchestra. My other interests include swimming and walking at the coast and in the countryside and spending time with my family.

There have been many significant events where I have felt or seen God move in my life and in the life of others, which inspires me to tell others about Jesus. In 2015, I felt a call to ordination and after much thought, wrestling, prayer and discernment, I entered the Diocesan process which led to a recommendation for training. I was accepted by St Mellitus College where I studied for a Diploma in Theology, Mission & Ministry for two years before my ordination in 2020.

We moved to Launceston to take up my post as Assistant Curate to the Launceston Parish Churches and the Churches in the Moorland and Egloskerry group. It has been a fruitful time of learning, serving, ministry, prayer and blessing.

I look forward to continuing my faith journey with the Camel-Allen Churches, as together we seek the will of God, and look to share His love amongst one another and with the wider communities.

We look forward to welcoming and seek God’s blessing on Rev Nicki and Andrew as they move home and settle into life within our group of churches, and Rev Nicki as she prepares for her service of licensing and installation and begins work with the team here.
