St Austell Light & Life
St Austell Light & Life is a part of the Free Methodist church. We are a vibrant and growing church that launched in September 2009. Since then the church has grown and has planted two more churches in the neighbouring towns of Liskeard and Bodmin and there is a close relationship between the churches. In St Austell, we currently have an average congregation of around 120 made up of people across the whole age spectrum. Our purpose is to see God’s love transform lives as we follow Him and this vision shapes everything that we do. This includes everything from our well established Foodbank to our small group ministry, our youth ministry to how we operate on a Sunday morning. We are an outward focused church and our passion is to see people come to know Jesus and then to see them go on to be set free to become fully the people that He made them to be. Further background and the values of Light & Life churches can be found on our website.
