Vision for our Deanery

Unity in Spirit and purpose to preach the gospel and reach the missing generations in the two towns of Falmouth and Penryn, as well as the villages that surround them.

Growth and renewal

The Deanery sees a new opportunity to revitalise the church for an exciting future in and around Falmouth with the coming together of parishes to pioneer mission and ministry.

Subject to Pastoral Reorganisation, the Deanery’s plan is to establish a new Team Ministry for Penryn with the appointment of an Oversight Minister to become Team Rector in a new United Benefice.

Mission and Ministry Priorities

  • Teach and make disciples, growing in our own faith.
  • Engage with and be more involved in our community, responding to the needs and injustices in our society
  • Reach out and serve families and young people.
  • Encourage inclusive and creative worship and opportunities for prayer.
  • Be a welcoming place for all people and all ages.
  • Ensure our churches and facilities provide holy and sacred places.
  • To provide leadership across the parishes.
  • To plan and lead worship in differing contexts and traditions.
  • To develop an evangelistic mindset.
  • To foster good communication and collaboration between the parishes and deanery whilst being sensitive to each parish’s identity.
  • To support and actively engage in the deanery.
  • To discern and nurture lay ministry.
  • To lead and embed safe and healthy working practices.

Mission and ministry across the Carnmarth South Deanery will be led by:

  • Two full-time stipendiary clergy, this one based in the Penryn benefice and one in the Falmouth benefice
  • Two house-for-duty clergy, one based in each proposed benefice
  • The lead minister of Transforming Mission and New Street Church carrying out additional duties across both benefices in the deanery equivalent to 30% of the role of a full-time stipendiary minister. Transforming Mission continues to lead mission and outreach to the missing generations
