We are a growing fellowship that is seeking to follow Jesus, deepen in faith and serve Padstow and the surrounding area. Our main Sunday service is less formal, reflecting our desire to reach out to all. We are Anglican and focus on worship, the word of God and ensure all can participate and feel welcome. We have children's groups, various small groups and provide a hub for community activities. We also enjoy hosting musical concerts during the year.
Weekday services are more traditional and contemplative.
We look forward to welcoming you!
THE CHURCH IS OPEN DAILY DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS.

There have been three churches over fourteen centuries on this site.
The first church was built in 518 by Petroc, a missional saint. The church, monastery and all it contained were completely destroyed by the Vikings in 981.
A second church was built around 1100 (Saxon with Norman additions). This was then replaced by the current church in 1425.
The church has been at the heart of Padstow for centuries.
