Our Team

The Revd Nicola Farr

Nicola was ordained in Truro in July 2020 and has been working Launceston, Egloskerry and the Moorland churches. She joined our Benefice on 7th March with a licensing service at St Teath Church.

The Revd Jeffrey Terry – Associate Priest

Jeffery was ordained deacon at Truro Cathedral in July 2019, joined our Benefice as Assistant Curate in March 2020 and was ordained priest that summer. Jeffrey works in the benefice part-time.

Born and raised in the north west, Jeffrey studied and practiced law in London before returning north, practising as Arbitrator, Mediator and Barrister nationally but primarily from his chambers in Manchester. In 2010 Jeffrey and his wife, Susan, bought and renovated their ancient house just outside in Trethevy, believed to have been a small medieval monastery occupied by the monks of St Piran, where they now live with their border collie, Bess. Sue and Jeffrey have two adult daughters, Sarah and Anna.

Ms Claire Salzmann

Claire is licensed to our Benefice as a Reader in the Church of England, which means she is trained and authorised as a lay leader to take services, preach and do pastoral work at the direction of the Rector. Claire regularly takes services around our Benefice churches and has a special ministry of bereavement care and funerals. Formerly House Manager at the University of Greenwich, London, now living in Delabole she can often be seen exercising her fox-red Labrador, Star and young black lab, Boaz and is also enjoying learning the saxophone.

Sue also leads special services and Messy Church from time to time and is leader of a weekly Home Group: Together. Papillion Zanna is part of the family.
