Central Methodist Church Launceston

reaching out with Christ at the Centre

Please note - All Church Services and Social Meetings are currently cancelled due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. You will probably have heard that the government has lifted some of the restrictions on the use of 'religious buildings' and have suggested that - in appropriate circumstances - buildings may be reopened for the use by individuals for personal prayer. Such arrangements will of course take considerable planning and careful organisation and stewarding. This is not the signal to reopen premises for widespread use and we are still a very long way away from any meaningful gathering for corporate worship in the building.

The Methodist Connexion (from whom we take our advice) has indicated that it will not be updating advice to churches until after Methodist Conference (digital of course), on July 2nd.

Service sheets have been produced by the Methodist Church and will be provided each week on this site.
We are encouraging chapels to use this at the same time as their chapel service would have been on Sunday
so that we feel that we are still worshipping together, although not physically being together.

Circuit Weekly Services
Meditations on the Book of Ruth
During the pandemic, Services adapted for no physical congregation will be live streamed from Wesley’s Chapel in London
Service times: Wednesday 12:45; Thursday 12:45 ; Sunday 9:45 and 11:00.

A Warm Welcome from Central Methodist Church Launceston, CORNWALL, UK


We extend the love of Jesus Christ to you and invite you to join with us through this site, or in the various church programmes and activities, or in opportunities for worship, in learning how Christ loves and how that love may grow within us and through us. If you have visited us we trust you have experienced the presence of God and sensed the friendliness of the People.


Our goal as a church is to love as Christ loved and to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ through its variety of worship services, through spiritual development, outreach and mission.

Mission Statement set in 2000
'The goal of Central Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ through worship, discipleship, evangelism and mission.'


Thank you and every blessing for the future
Dear Friends
As we are about to leave Central and the Circuit over the Summer, it is time to express our thanks to all those who have made Jude and I welcome here along with our family and supported us in all that God has led us into and that we have sought to achieve alongside you all.

Thanks too for the recent opportunity of a Sabbatical which has enabled me much needed time to take stock and prepare to move on.

As I look back on 10 years here it is amazing to reflect on how things have changed. I think many of our churches are in good heart, and it has been great to see the refurbishments at Yeolmbridge and Pipers Pool in the last few years. 


The greater cooperation with Ecumenical colleagues has meant a bigger impact in local areas and through the Foodbank, Money Advice and Street Pastors. Memories of events such as Barbeques around the Circuit and on Widemouth beach, treasure hunts and Safari suppers to name just a few. Various hilarious games at Holiday Club and Shift won't be forgotten in a hurry either!

It has also been tremendous to see the Bridge Church be born and grow into a vibrant worship centre, with many new outreach ventures into the community. The Skate Park which became the Community Centre was also of great benefit to young families throughout the area, and it was great to see so many hundreds of people passing through on a weekly basis, extending the reach of our mission into new peoples' lives from the community.

We look forward to new horizons, who knows what this new post-covid world will look like, but we know that the Lord has kept His hand upon us and we are excited as to where He is leading us. ‘May the Lord bless you and keep you’, as the priestly blessing from Numbers Chapter 6 suggests.

I am now preparing to take my leave, as you will also be preparing to welcome Revd. David Miller and Liz. Life continues to move on.
Every Blessing for the future,
