Welcome to the Local Mission Church of Downderry: St Nicholas in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and county of Cornwall England.

The church began life as a mission church planted by Hessenford Parish Church since population was growing significantly at Downderry but not at Hessenford.  The present small but substantial building dates from 1905. It is situated within a stone’s throw of the beach. In 2001 a new wing with kitchen and toilets was added. It is truly a multi-purpose building. The vestry is also the Office for the Civil Parish at the heart of the community..... St Nicolas Church Primary School is directly opposite.  The school has around 100 pupils. Michael Goodland and other members of the church enjoy leading the Wednesday afternoon School assemblies, and the ‘Open the Book’ team now go in on a regular basis.
