Last night we welcomed the Revd Joachim Foot as the new Rector for the parishes of Probus, Ladock, Grampound with Creed and St Erme.
The service of Institution and Induction was led by the Rt. Revd Chris Goldsmith, Bishop of St Germans.
Probus Church was full with representatives from the parishes as well as supporters from the parishes of Looe and Morval where Joachim had been serving his curacy. Also in attendance were clergy from the benefice, deanery and across the diocese.
During the service Joachim was introduced to representatives from the local community including our Parish Councillors, the village hall, Probus Surger, the church children’s groups and ecumenical partners from the Catholic and Methodist churches.
After the service there was a time of fellowship over refreshments.
We look forward to getting to know Joachim and his family better and working with him in the coming months and years.
