St Rumon’s church is part of the United Benefice of Veryan (with Portloe) and Ruan Lanihorne.
It is situated in the middle of Ruan Lanihorne, which is the largest village within the parish. The church provides a place of quite prayer within the community.
Regular services are held at 9.30 a.m. on the first (Holy Communion) and third (Matins) Sunday of the month, where the order of the Book of Common Prayer is followed. For special occasions such as weddings, funerals or baptisms, a choice of service is offered. Other services throughout the year are St Rumon’s Patronal Festival, Harvest Festival and Carol Service, when we are quite often joined by choirs from the Roseland.
The church is also used for concerts and at the moment has a display remembering those who fought in WWI.
Over the last 20 years various essential repairs have been carried out to the church, with some still waiting to be completed. Recent years have also seen work being done on some of the headstones in the churchyard, this is still ongoing.

Please note that the church is only open at the weekends, 10 a.m. til 4 p.m. throughout the Winter months each year, 1st November until the 1st March. If you would like to visit the church on a week day, please contact the churchwardens.
All three churches in the benefice 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. Ruan, Veryan 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.
