    Ethel Broad

    The entire Church and village community was sad to learn of Ethel Broad’s death at her care home in St Austell. Ethel was born and raised in Ladock, returning here after a teaching career elsewhere in the county. She was a great supporter of the Church at all its activities and events, running her popular puzzles and games stall at the Fete for many years.  She also found time to work for the Royal British Legion, becoming the Women’s President for Cornwall. She was a member of the Ladock Old Cornwall Society and she formed Ladock Riverside Club.  St Pirans Day would always see Ethel dressed in her Cornish tartan taking part in the celebrations. She was so proud of her Cornish heritage and 'her' Ladock. She will be missed by all her friends in the village and further afield; we send our condolences to all her family.


    The Prayer sung by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion                                                                     

       The Prayer

    I pray you’ll be our eyes

    And watch us where we go

     And help us to be wise

    In times that we don’t know.

    Let this be our prayer

    When we lose our way.

    Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace

    To a place where we’ll be safe.


    I pray you’ll find your light

    And hold it in our hearts

    When stars go out each night.

    Let this be our prayer.

    When shadows fill our day

    Lead us to a place, guide us with your Grace

    Give us faith so we’ll be safe.


    We ask that life be kind and watch us from above

    We hope each soul will find another soul to love.

    Let this be our prayer

    Just like every child.


    Need to find a place, guide us with your grace

    Give us grace so we’ll be safe.

    People have been worshipping in our beautiful parish church at least since the twelfth century.  As is so often the case in Cornwall, it is dedicated to a local saint, Ladoca in this case, who is reputed to have lived at nearby Fentonladock. 

    The church is situated impressively on a hill above the village.  The bulk of the building visible today dates from the fifteenth century.  Having fallen into disrepair, the church was lavishly restored by the then rector Canon Richard Wise in 1864.  The renowned Morris and Burne-Jones stained glass dates from this time.


    Ladock is in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and in the Deanery of Powder.  It is now part of the Probus Team of parishes, together with with St Erme, Probus and Grampound with Creed. 


    The church is usually kept unlocked during daylight hours throughout the year but is closed at the moment due to the Coronavirus shutdown.


    The church has been at the centre of the parish community throughout its history and remains so to this day.  Visitors are always most welcome at all services and events.

    Keep us good Lord under the shadow of your mercy, in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort, knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    And may God bless us all.
