We are following the government's step-by-step programme to slowly return to worship in church, as restrictions are eased. We are now worshipping in church on Sunday mornings, with numbers only limited by the buildings capacity, allowing for social distancing. Other events are limited depending on whether they are life events or other activities. Please contact us or go to for more information.


Since the country went into Lockdown church services in the building have remained suspended. Small funeral of less than 30 people can take place, and weddings of no more than 6 people. Baptisms are permitted but not recommended except in emergency.


Cornwall is now in Tier 3 so we have taken the difficult decision to suspend gathered worship in church buildings. This is to keep people safe as the virus is now more contagious and continues to spread. Church life continues through ministry offered by clergy and lay people across the cluster of churches and we continue to meet for worship and prayer over the phone or through the use of internet technology.

Please stay safe, follow government guidelines and get in touch if you would like prayer or more information about anything we do.
