Welcome to the parish church of Hayle: St Elwyn in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and county of Cornwall England. St Elwyn is one of the five churches which is encompassed within the Godrevy Team Ministry. Visit The Godrevy Team Ministry web site using the link in Pages and Links.

St Elwyn’s is a Victorian church (Grade 2*) situated in the Foundry area of Hayle, close to the beach and harbour.  It was built in 1886 to a design by John Dando Sedding, who later designed Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square, London.  A key feature of St Elwyn's Church is the magnificent 'Friendship Window', designed by Clayton & Bell in 1933, which covers most of the west wall.

The Anglo Catholic tradition is observed, with incense being offered and the Angelus sung at the 9.30 Sunday Eucharist and other festivals.   A Tea-Time service is held at 1600 on the first Sunday in the month and there is a strong and friendly midweek communion at 1000 on Wednesday, which is much valued, especially by those who are unable to attend on a Sunday.
