Jo and Mark's Smallholding at Lowena

The Smallholding at Lowena

“We’ve run our smallholding for 8 years. It is in walking distance from Redruth and its 15 acres overlook the north coast and hills of west Cornwall. Many visitors comment on how peaceful it is.”

“We know God has also called us to help hurting and exhausted Christians so we’ve started the planning process to convert farm buildings into a self-catering cottage.

“Learning new rhythms of grace while working on the smallholding can be wonderfully healing and refreshing.
Pray for the planning process and for wisdom as we move towards becoming a dispersed community.

“We’ve also started to explore becoming a ‘Christian Community’ with a daily rhythm of prayer, community membership, common lifestyle choices and ministering together.

“People with a range of abilities and problems have worked with us, looking after the animals, fields and garden. Currently we’re working with school students with learning and behaviour difficulties. We’ve also helped people with addictions and mental health difficulties.”
