Who we are

Bodmin Light and Life was planted out of East Cornwall Light and Life, which also has congregations in St Austell and Liskeard. East Cornwall is, in turn, part of the group of Light and Life Churches across Cornwall, which are part of the Free Methodist Church in the UK.

We range in age, background, and church experience, but love being “family” together. We are a group of people of all ages dedicated to following Jesus and living out our faith in our daily lives.


We are delighted to be Advocates for Acts435, an innovative charity which hosts a website allowing people across the world to donate funds to those in need.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of funding for something specific such as household goods, or assistance with bills, Acts435 might be able to help. Please note that we are currently able to offer this service only to people living in the Bodmin area.

Bodmin youth project

We are proud to be part of BODMIN YOUTH PROJECT – an initiative of ourselves, Bodmin, Padstow and Wadebridge Methodist Circuit, Immanuel Church, and New Life Church, in association with Scripture Union. We run  Immerse (10-14s) fortnightly on Friday nights, and a group for girls 14+. We also run a football outreach programme on Wednesdays at the Fair Park when the weather allows!


We are part of the global Free Methodist Movement which currently ministers in over 80 countries worldwide.

Light & Life is a family of churches who are passionate about Loving God, Loving His Church and Loving His World right across Cornwall.
