Welcome to St Symphorian, Veryan


Regular visitors to the churchyard at Veryan will surely be relieved to learn that the PCC
has agreed that the gates adjoining Sentry Lane, now over 60 years old, will be replaced within the next couple of months.
For some time they have been very difficult to open and close and the wear and tear of many years means that repair isn’t an option.
However, the new gates will cost around £2,600, and while some of this has already been pledged, donations will be greatly appreciated – there is a leaflet  here which explains how you can help.

The three Churches of the Benefice: Veryan, Ruan and Portloe churches all have something in common – they are all different! Each place of worship seeks to offer something distinctive and in that way complement each other within the one Benefice.

At Veryan there is a mixture of traditional and new. On the fourth Sunday, Mattins is sung at 11.00 am. On the other Sundays Common Worship Parish Communion is celebrated at 11.00 am. Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms normally follow the Common Worship patterns, unless an alternative is specifically requested.

However, the churches are for more than just Sunday services. They have been used as venues for concerts, drama, displays. All three churches are at the heart of our communities and are here to welcome and serve everyone who comes to them. They are available for private prayer or for a time of quiet contemplation.

We have recorded a number of services that can be seen by clicking on the “Full Service Recordings” category.
