Who we are

Launceston, the ancient capital and gateway to Cornwall, sits astride the A30 in the agricultural heart of the Westcountry. The town is one mile from the Devon and Cornwall border and is an area of considerable beauty and charm. There is easy access to both the North and South Coasts of the peninsular as well as to the cities of Exeter, Plymouth and Truro.

Dating back to Celtic times Launceston is the only walled town in Cornwall and is steeped in history being dominated by its Castle which was built in the 11th Century by Brian de Bretagne, the first Norman Earl of Cornwall .

Launceston Central Methodist Church is part of the Launceston Area Methodist Circuit which surrounds the town stretching from over the Devon Border to the edge of Bodmin Moor. The circuit is organised so as to care and support the full range and life of the church. The Church Council (Trustees) consists of representatives who are elected from the church membership and a number of representatives from the various church committees and other organisations.

The strong tradition of Methodism in Cornwall and the Westcountry is represented by the Launceston Area Methodist Churches circuit, which has 13 Churches served by two clergy, a youth worker and a circuit administrator.

To find the Launceston Central Methodist Church from the main A30 road take the exit at the Pennygillam junction and follow the signs for the Launceston town centre. Follow the main road, bearing left into St. Thomas Road at the junction by the Town Hall and opposite the castle.

After approximately 500 metres take the first turning on the right into Dockacre Road. Take the next turning on the right into Tower Street. This road is quite steep. On the left, as the road bends sharply to the right, there is a car park and at the top of the road (Castle Street) is the Central Methodist Church.

Car parking is also available on the road (only on Sunday) and in another car park to the right by the Church. Central is also in easy walking distance from the Launceston town centre.

Local Methodist History: John Wesley started a small group in Launceston in the mid 18th Century. Our current buildings were constructed between 1860 and 1890. The Central congregation is an amalgamation of the Wesley Methodist Church, the Tower Street Methodist Church, and most recently the St Stephens Methodist Church.

Launceston Central Methodist Church Service Times

Worship at Central Methodist Church, Launceston

Sunday Services are at 10.30am and 6.30pm - and are led by a team of committed preachers and worship leaders. We'd love to meet you, so do come along!

Worship is at the centre of what we are about at Central. Our desire is to have our lives touched by the Spirit of God as committed followers of The Lord Jesus Christ.

Our services vary considerably in style, as our goal is to provide for people a worship style that is appropriate for them.

On the first Sunday of each month there is a Community Breakfast at 9.30am followed at 10.30am by an All-Age Worship service - aimed at young families and children of all ages!

The music style involves a combination of hymns and worship songs. A worship group with tracks leads the contemporary styled music.

Once a month, we celebrate Holy Communion and invite everyone who is seeking God to participate.

10.30am Sunday Morning Worship:

This starts with the whole church family together. After 15 minutes the children leave for Club Sunday (there is a creche for 1-3 year olds).

(Club Sunday is a club for 4-11 year olds which takes place on the third Sunday of the month. Val invites you to come along at 10.30am and learn about God's love for us through games, stories, crafts and music with lots of fun!)

Sunday Evening Worship Each Week
6.30pm: Usually on the 1st Sunday of the month we share Holy Communion.
6.30pm: on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays 245 Alive worship in a contemporary style. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
6.30 pm: Praise & Learning, a relaxed home group style of service with song, prayer and teaching on the 3rd Sunday on the month.

Healing Service: On the first Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. we have a healing service with Holy Communion.

Music in Worship: In addition to our excellent worship band and organists, we have a singing group who often use good quality worship backing tracks.
