Welcome to this church in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and county of Cornwall England. Dedicated to St Petroc, but known locally as Egloshayle Church, the name of the ancient village in which it is situated, it is largely medieval in construction. It is situated on the road which runs besides the river, facing across to the town of Wadebridge of which Egloshayle village has become part. The River Camel is still tidal here and Egloshayle means 'church on the shore'. There are eight fine bells in the 82' tower and the church has a strong bell-ringing tradition. In past centuries the church had strong connections with the Molesworth-St Aubyn family of Pencarrow.

The church is open daily from 10 a.m. until 4.30 p.m. Please note that with effect from Sunday 4th September 2016 the Sunday Worship will be at the new time of 10.30 am
