Regular Events:

Midweek Services March

Eucharist in St Buryan Tuesday 10am on 1st  

Eucharist in St Levan Thursday 10am on 10th 17th 24th  


Due to a change in attendance levels at the mid week services, and the changing needs of those who wish to attend, we shall be trialling a new pattern of one midweek Eucharist between October and Holy Week. We shall revert to twice weekly during the summer season. This has been decided after consultation with the attendees, Church Wardens and the ministry team. Therefore in March we shall meet once on a Tuesday in St Buryan and all other weeks on Thursdays in St Levan.


Choral Evensong St Buryan 6pm Sunday 16th March (next date 19th April) A gentle reflective service from the Book of Common Prayer, led by a member of the Ministry Team with choral singing by St Buryan Church Choir.

Prayer for Lent

Dear God, I so much want to be in control. I want to be the master of my own destiny. Still I know that you are saying: “Let me take you by the hand and lead you. Accept my love and trust that where I will bring you, the deepest desires of your heart will be fulfilled.” Lord, open my hands to receive your gift of love. Amen.
