About Us

Trusham is a small rural community and the church is situated on one of it's highest points.  It is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and has many historical features worth looking it.  It has a link with the poet, Charles Causley, many of whose relations are buried in our churchyard.

The congregation may be small but we try to use our church in a way that is enhanced by its quietness and beauty.  We have a weekly service, usually at 9.15am, which can be Communion, All-Age, or another form of Morning Worship.  In addition we have occasional Iona and Taizé services, and sometimes a Café church where we have the opportunity to worship informally over coffee, talking about a passage or a theme and reflecting on it together. 

We are endeavouring to maintain our churchyard in a way which gives dignity to those who have died and their relatives but also rewilding some areas to allow plants to flourish and giving pollinators access to food and shelter.  In three years we have recorded 145 species of plant and since 2021 have so far recorded 188 species of invertebrates as well as a short but growing list of fungi, lichens and Protista (25 and counting!).  Keeping these records is an ongoing project.
