This House for Duty post is situated in one of the most spectacular areas in Cornwall in the most southerly part of Penwith Deanery in Truro diocese.
The newly proposed ‘Land’s End’ Benefice in which the House for Duty Minister will minister encompasses the village communities that frame the surrounding coastline and consists of the parishes of St. Levan, St. Sennen, St. Buryan, St Just, Pendeen and Morvah.
The House for Duty Minister will be responsible to, and support, Revd Karsten Wedgewood, the current incumbent of St Just, Pendeen and Morvah and incumbent designate of the proposed Land’s End Benefice.
The proposed Land’s End Benefice is located in the west of the Penwith peninsula in Cornwall, the most south-westerly point of Britain. It sits mainly on granite bedrock, which has led to the formation of a rugged coastline with many fine beaches and deep valleys.
Apart from Morvah and St Just, each church has at least
one local worship leader.
We also have two retired priests helping out (one of them mainly at St Levan and the other one across the benefice) and a pioneer minister supporting us with art and spirituality events at her house.
Pendeen currently also has a team of five pastoral ministers.
As a result of planning for the creation of this new benefice, we are looking forward to exploring more benefice-wide opportunities and initiatives, such as Messy Church, a benefice choir, small groups, prayer and Lent groups.
