St Columb Major
Our church, a fine Grade 1 listed building dating originally from the 14th century, stands on a plateau at the head of the fertile Vale of Lanherne. It is normally open to visitors Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm and is well worth a visit. Tap TR9 6AE into your GPS to take you to our car park off West Street.
You would be very welcome to join us for worship; please see full details of all forthcoming services in our Benefice.
The list of priests who have ministered here dates back to 1257, and our present Rector Revd. Helen Baber leads our Ministry Team.
Our magnificent parish church dates from the 14th century and has tremendous potential as a concert venue for acoustic music. Not only does it boast a noted Bryceson pipe organ and a good quality grand piano, but the building itself has a generous, warm acoustic.
Each summer, at the end of August, the Harmoniemusik ensemble, a group of professional musicians from London, present a series of chamber music concerts to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience.
