Places of Worship
Cornwall is known as the ‘Land of the Saints’ and Christianity has flourished here since early times. Many Cornish Churches are named for those saints and their legends add interest to the parish history. Our two United Benefices are made up of four Parishes comprising St Paul’s, St Clement, St George the Martyr and St John the Evangelist in the Diocese of Truro. Each is quite distinctive in its style of worship and each very different in architectural style and worthy of a visit. All extend a very warm welcome to visitors. To find out more visit the website: www.trurochurches.org.uk
There is an extensive programme that sees concerts, recitals, lectures and theatre take place throughout the year.You might like to time your visit to coincide with either an organ recital or a guided tour. Truro Cathedral have the largest Organ Recital series in the country featuring some of the best organists from the UKand around the world who all rave about our famous Father Willis organ. There are some 30 recitals beginning mid March and going on to the end of October. These are free and on Friday lunchtimes at 1.10pm. If history is your thing then take one of our free Guided Tours. They begin in April and run through to the end of October and are at 11.00am, Monday to Thursday and Saturday and 11.30am on Friday. There are afternoon tours at 2.00pm during school holidays.

Our Lady of the Portal and St Piran Roman Catholic Church
In the fifteenth century Truro was the only place in England that had a church dedicated to Our Lady of the Portal, the others being in Rome. The dedication to St Piran invokes the patronage of a sixth century Celtic saint who has become the patron saint of miners. This church may be the only one in the country with a well in it and a plaque on the floor marks its position.
