Veryan Parish Church Welcomes you!
We are a small and welcoming Church of England parish church on Cornwall's Roseland peninsula. We enjoy a close relationship with the churches of Portloe and Ruan Lanihorne and together form part of the Diocese of Truro and the wider global Anglican Communion of churches. We are privileged to worship in a beautiful parish church in one of Cornwall's most scenic villages. Of particular local interest are the famous roundhouses and the "Hera" crew grave.
Veryan Parish Church seeks to proclaim Biblical truth in the beauty of Anglican liturgy and music. Our style of worship is grounded in the Anglican tradition: Our reverent services follow both the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and Common Worship. Our Anglican identity is also expressed through our corporate membership of the Prayer Book Society. We have been at the heart of Veryan since Norman times and enjoy a very close relationship with Veryan Church of England Primary School.
Why not join us this Sunday morning to find out more? You are certain to receive a warm welcome!
4th Sunday of the month only. This is a quiet and reflective holy communion service according to the traditional Anglican Book of Common Prayer of 1662. There is no music and the service lasts about 35 minutes.
Join us for an hour of worship, teaching, singing, prayer and fellowship. Holy communion services follow the contemporary language Common Worship liturgy. On the fourth Sunday of the month, our worship follows Morning Prayer “Mattins” with sermon from the Book of Common Prayer 1662.
“The kingdom we are given is unshakable; let us therefore give thanks to God, and so worship him as he would be worshipped, with reverence and awe; for our God is a devouring fire.”
Hebrews 12:28-29 (NEB)
Small groups are an excellent way to learn about God’s Word, experience fellowship, develop friendships and to encourage one another as we deepen our relationships with Christ. We are keen to start a home group in the near future.
“For all the ancient scriptures were written for our own instruction, in order that through the encouragement they give us we may maintain our hope with fortitude.” Romans 15:4 (NEB)
Baptism is a sign of Regeneration or new Birth, whereby those that receive Baptism are grafted into the Church, receive the promises of the forgiveness of sin and of adoption to become children of God by the Holy Spirit. Faith is confirmed and Grace increased by virtue of prayer unto God. We baptise people of all ages – both very young and very old.
Please contact Churchwarden for details on infant or adult baptism.
Funerals services are very important rites marking the close of a human life on earth. They are an opportunity for family and friends to express their grief and to hear about the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Our graveyard leaflet contains practical information you may find helpful.
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4 (ESV)
