A Message from Reverend Paul



“My command is this: love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  You are my friends if you do what I command.” (John 15:12-14)

I have never been in the armed forces but am still a person under one command as are all who follow the Christian faith, and this is it: to love each other. How? In the way that Jesus loved us – a costly, sacrificial love for the sake of his friends. At this time of remembrance, we think of those who followed this command in a very literal way. Those who laid down their lives in conflict not just for their friends but for those who would come after them. In our church services each Sunday we remember how Jesus died for us, his friends, in the communion service, using a mixture of symbol and sacrament to give thanks and not forget. In the same way each year we remember those who followed his example so that they too will not be forgotten.

With Every Blessing,

Rev’d Paul Salaman


Remembrance Sunday falls on 14 November this year and, as is our tradition, we will be having a Act of Remembrance starting at the war memorial outside the church at 10:50 before moving into the church after the two-minute silence at 11:00. On Remembrance Day (11th) there is not normally an event at Ladock, but people are welcome to join the folk of Grampound where there will be a procession before 11:00 followed by a service.


The planned services for November are:

7 November, Holy Communion 11.00 am

14 November, Act of Remembrance at War Memorial followed by Service in Church, 10.50 am. (With Choir)

21 November, Holy Communion 11.00 am, with Choir

28 November, Holy Communion 11.00 am, with Sunday Club

28 November Evensong 6.00 pm


In addition there is a short service of Morning Prayer every Tuesday at 9.00 am.


The Church is open for private prayer every day, including weekends.


Full details of all the online services are on our website:



Many congratulations from us all to Roxana, Joachim, Anastasia and Theodore Foot on the arrival of Raphael Thomas Foot, who was born on Thursday 7 October, weighing 9lb 2oz. Mother and baby are doing well.


Food Banks

Following the encouraging reception at the Harvest Festival we have reinstated the ‘blue box’ to enable people to leave contributions for the No One Goes Hungry Project in Probus and The Community Larder at St Erme. The following are particularly welcome:

- tea and coffee

- fruit juice

- tinned veg, fruit, meat and fish

- biscuits

- custard, rice pudding, jelly

- baby food and toddler snacks

The box is just inside the main door on the left. Arrangements have been made for it to be emptied regularly and the contents to be split equally between the two charities.
