Promoting a Safer Church

Recent press reports about abuse experienced by folk within the Anglican church have made shocking and challenging reading. The Callington Cluster of Churches along with the Diocese of Truro and, indeed, the rest of the Church is now doing all it can to ensure that such events never happen again.

To this end, everyone involved in any way in a voluntary capacity within our five churches has been encouraged to undertake the Basic Awareness Safeguarding training course provided by the Diocese. Those who lead or assist in services, children’s groups, music worship groups or pastoral care teams are expected to take higher level training and, if required, to undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring) check as a matter of course.

It has been wonderful to see how willing folk have been to undertake these responsibilities; appreciating the need to be watchful and ensure the protection of minors and vulnerable adults at all levels.

So, if you are attending one of our churches and feel led by the Lord to volunteer to help in one or other of the clubs, groups or organisations, please don’t be surprised at the level of form filling and checks you may be required to undergo.

“God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all (the Safeguarding requirements) that you need, you will abound in every good work” 2 Cor. 9:8

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello


Where and When

We are one church in five locations which offer a wide variety of styles of service from vibrant family friendly services to something more contemplative.  We have services starting at 8am, 9.15am,  10am, 11am and 11.15am across the Cluster of five churches.  You can find details of the services and what to expect here.  The calendar not only gives you the place and time but also a description of what you can expect from the service.

What you can be sure of is a warm welcome at whichever church you decide to visit.  Refreshments will be on offer either before or after the service.

What about my kids?

Children's groups at St Mary’s Callington on Sundays are temporarily suspended due to unforeseen circumstances.  However, there will always be an activity for children to do, a place for them in all 11am services at and the Tower Room is available for play and fun throughout.  


Getting Connected


Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. We can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Get on a Team!

Serving on a team is a greatly way of getting to know people better.  If you want to get involved in the life of the church and to help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
