St Gluvias Church

An Anglican place of worship in Penryn for over 700 years

We seek to worship God and to grow in faith, serving the people of the parish of St. Gluvias with Penryn – and the wider world – in the name of Jesus Christ. The church is open on Sunday and Tuesday morning’s for mass, however arrangements can be made for the church to be opened at other occasions for visitors to the area. The church also welcomes bell ringers to their practice sessions (Wednesday evenings) or on a Sunday ahead of mass.

On occasions when events and concerts are held in church, these will be publicised.
