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.

St Rumon’s Church
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. Please contact the churchwardens for more information. 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 about the renovations of various headstones/tombs in the churchyard. You will find by the display a folder with all previous displays in.
The church is open every day from February to November and only at the weekends for the rest of the year.
