Supporting vulnerable community members through social enterprise Bodmin Way (Festo) and serving as a curate in St Petroc’s Church (Grace)

Make a gift to support them


Cornwall is a place of contrasts, with rich second homes, tourism and natural beauty alongside severe deprivation and spiritual poverty.

We hope to mobilise others to serve the needs of the community, reaching the missing generations with the love of Jesus and welcoming them into the Kingdom of God and his Church.

More about Festo and Grace

Having served in the parish of St Martin’s Liskeard for the past four years, we are currently transitioning to St Petroc’s Bodmin and the Bodmin Team Benefice. Grace will serve there as a curate and Festo will work with the Bodmin Way, a social enterprise run by the Bodmin Team Benefice. 

Like Liskeard, Bodmin has a high crime rate and is also a deprived area, living with spiritual poverty as well as financial. Bodmin Way is working to improve the well-being of residents in Bodmin itself and nearby villages. Committed to supporting those members of society who face the most challenges, the social enterprise offers various points of connection and support, including a community larder.

We have always believed that God’s call on us is to work to see lives transformed by his love. Festo has a background in education and Grace has a background in youth work and we are offering our experience and skills to God to use in his transforming mission.
