ChurchDating from the 13th Century, our church is the jewel of the beautiful Cornish village of St.Mawgan, with its cricket ground, ancient inn, ford and convent.

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

We also have a home group which meets every Monday afternoon for group discussion, study, worship, prayer and fellowship.

About St Mawgan churchThe church, endowed by the Arundells of Lanherne who lived here from the 13th to 18th centuries, dates from the 13th century. The 14th century tower is unusually placed at the south transept: the upper part was added by the Arundells in 1433 at a cost of 10 pounds. The belfry houses a ring of eight bells, the oldest of which was cast between 1378 and 1407.

Within the church are many beautiful items of interest, including the carved pulpit of 1553, 42 bench ends and a rood screen from the 15th century, many fine 16th century Arundell brasses, and an elaborate 15th century Pentewan stone font.

The peaceful sloping churchyard contains many gems - look for the Lantern Cross (ca.1420) and the stern of a rowing boat - a memorial to ten men who drifted ashore, frozen to death in 1846.
