St Stephen-in-Brannel Parish Church has
been at the heart of the community since 1261


Serving one of the largest parishes in Cornwall, this Anglican church has been a focus for worship and community activity for well over 750 years. A much-loved place by all who come here, this parish covers the villagees of St Stephen, Nanpean, (where we have St George's, the mission church), Foxhole, Whitemoor, Treviscoe, Trethosa, Coombe, Lanjeth and High Street, and all the little places in between. We extend a warm welcome to all.

This is your parish church. 



We take the safeguarding of children, and vulnerable adults very seriously whilst in our care and is an integral part of church life.
