Welcome to St Symphorian, Veryan


The Bishop of Truro, the Rt Revd Tim Thornton, is pleased to announce the appointment of the
Revd Philip Greenhalgh (currently Rector of Bewcastle, Stapleton and Kirklinton with Hethersgill in the Diocese of Carlisle) to be Priest-in-charge (house for duty) of the benefice of Veryan with Ruanlanihorne (Diocese of Truro). A service of Licensing was held on Monday 2 October in Veryan Church.

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.
