Parish of Wadebridge and Egloshayle





A very warm welcome to the website for the Parish of Wadebridge in North Cornwall.

We cover the whole of Wadebridge and some surrounding countryside. There are four centres of worship, three of them historic buildings and the fourth, the John Betjeman Community Centre, where a congregation meets on a regular basis.

We work closely with other Christian churches in Wadebridge to demonstrate the love of God in practical activities such as schools and youth work and the local food bank.

We are pleased to announce that Rev Steve Payne has been appointed as Priest in Charge of the Parish and is due to join us in February 2020.

Appointment of Priest Update: We are pleased to announce the appointment of a new Priest in Charge Rev’d Stephen Payne.  Details for Steve’s licensing in early February 2020 are being finalised.  In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming Steve and Jackie to the Parish.

A word of from our new Vicar, Steve: Well you have a new vicar at last! I hope you are as delighted and excited as we are about coming to share with you in God’s mission in Wadebridge. For Jackie and I it feels like the right time and the right place.

For the last few years we have lived just outside St Austell where I have been involved in the deanery and with the local foodbank. Prior to this I was a vicar in Plymouth. The church exists to proclaim that God can and is able to make a difference to our lives and community. That is the challenge that I come to lead you in.

We are very much looking forward to getting to know you all. Presently we are in the process of preparing to move in the new year. One of the challenges we face will be to transport our 4 cats to their new home!

Please pray for us as we will for you as we look forward to what God has in store in this next chapter of all our lives.

Have a great Christmas

God Bless

Steve & Jackie
