~ The Rock Trust ~


In April 1995 the Churchwarden and Treasurer of St. Peter's Church Council, Mike Stevenson and Reg Barker, felt that St. Peter's would benefit financially if a separate trust was set up. This was to appear to those people who had no special interest in the day-to-day running or church services of St. Peter's Church but who loved the building as a historical structure and an integral part of Cornworthy Parish.

As St. Peter is referred to in the Bible as "the rock on which I build my Church", it was felt that this would be a suitable name, and thus "The Rock Trust" was formed.

Since its inception Richard Porritt has acted as our treasurer and legal advisor, Peter Wheeler has acted as Chairman and Trustee and Michael Stevenson as a Trustee. They all retired from the trust in 2015 along with Amanda Critchlow Horning who had been a Trustee for 10 years.

The Rock Trust has achieved so much for St. Peter's Church during the last 20 years, having organised a number of events and occasions in Cornworthy and at Tuckenhay Mill. It has contributed to a complete re-wiring of the church, a new sound system, repairs to the windows and made a significant contribution of £24,000 towards the tower restoration.
