About Us

Welcome to St Mary's, the Parish Church of Sheviock in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and county of Cornwall, England.  Standing at the gateway to the Rame Peninsula since the eleventh century, this Church has served the communities within this Parish for over ten centuries.  In 2019 we joined the Benefice of St Germans Group Parish (Downderry, Hessenford, St Germans and Tideford) with Antony and Sheviock forming a cluster of six rural churches.

In 2023 we are  entering a pastoral re-organisation scheme which will bring together the two Benefices on the Rame Peninsula - the Benefice of Maker with Rame, Millbrook, Saint John and Torpoint and the Benefice of St Germans with Antony and Sheviock -  as one, under our newly appointed Oversight Minister, Reverend Jo Northey.

In order to safeguard this beautiful medieval church for the generations of the future and ensure that its heritage is widely appreciated, we are undertaking  significant renovations.  Phase 1, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Carew Pole Charitable Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Cornwall Historic Churches Trust and community fundraising events was completed in the Summer of 2019.  We are still seeking funds to undertake an equally challenging Phase 2 - including the collapse of the 3m high boundary wall to the churchyard in December 2019.  

The completion of Phase 1 saw us take on a new role - as a Heritage Gateway - to enable more visitors to appreciate the heritage of this beautiful medieval building and indeed other heritage sites on the Rame Peninsula.  We look forward to welcoming many new visitors to a wide variety of heritage events, as well as our regular services.
