Stratton Deanery Prayer
O generous God, you invite your people to discover the Kingdom and grow the church;  give us, then, the courage,  the strength and the vision to share in the mission and ministry of your Son that with the Lord of the Church we may be, truly,  the Church of the Lord.  Amen

written by Revd. Canon Rob Dickenson

Welcome to Stratton Deanery

North Cornwall is a truly glorious place, and it’s a privilege to live and work here – on the edge of everything. Where rugged cliffs encounter dramatic Atlantic breakers. Where Cornwall meets England. And where the Gospel is tested in people’s everyday lives.

Our 23 churches (across 18 parishes) are mainly small, rural, struggling for cash – and in good heart. Financial pressures mean that clergy are thin on the ground – but the dedication of their congregations mean that the churches are hives of activity.


As many of you will know by now, I have been offered and accepted, the post of Interim Priest in Charge of St Nicolas, Pevensey, in Chichester Diocese. My last Sunday in Cornwall will be 18th February, with the licensing in Sussex on 13th March.

Revd. Tony Windross
