MapChurchOur church, a fine Grade 1 listed building dating originally from the 14th century, stands on a plateau at the head of the fertile Vale of Lanherne. It is normally open to visitors during daylight hours and is well worth a visit. Tap TR9 6AE into your satnav to take you to our car park off West Street.

You would be very welcome to join us for worship normally at 11am on a Sunday and 9:30am on a Wednesday; please see full details of all forthcoming services in our Benefice.

The list of Priests who have ministered here dates back to 1257, and our present Rector Revd. Helen Baber leads our Ministry Team.

Our magnificent parish church dates from the 14th century and has tremendous potential as a concert venue for acoustic music. Not only does it boast a noted Bryceson pipe organ and a good quality grand piano, but the building itself has a generous, warm acoustic.

Harmoniemusik performersEach summer, at the end of August, the Harmoniemusik ensemble, a group of professional musicians from London, present a series of chamber music concerts to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience.

Open the Book logoTeams from the four parishes in our Benefice present bible stories using the Open the Book material at assemblies in local primary schools. This is much appreciated by both the staff and the pupils who join in enthusiastically with their parts.
