Church of England Diocese of Truro

New Lead Minister for New Street

We would like to introduce you to our new vicar, Sophie!

Sophie, Simon, Benjamin and Oliver will shortly be joining us in Falmouth and we can't wait to welcome them and get to know them. Sophie has just finished her curacy at Emmanuel Church, Guildford where she has particularly enjoyed preaching, investing in other leaders, and helping the church to engage with vulnerable families in the wider community. As a youngster she came to faith from a non-Christian background through the youth work of the local church and she loves seeing others come to faith in Jesus too. She undertook her theological education at Trinity College Bristol and commuted there from Bath after she and Simon married in 2011. Sophie and Simon first sensed a call to Cornwall in 2018 and began to follow Transforming Mission with great interest and with an even greater desire to join in! Sophie is currently teaching herself (slowly!) to play the piano and is keen to try paddle boarding when she arrives here.
