Welcome to St Veep Church, in St Veep parish near Lostwithiel.
The Parish of St Veep is very rural. Most of the parish is farm land. The western boundary is the River Lerryn. St Veep’s beautiful church stands on a hill, close to the lovely hamlet of Penpol. The Southern half of the Village of Lerryn is in the Parish, although the church is situated in a beautiful and fairly isolated position south of Lerryn.
Our Church is open throughout the year to visitors.
St Veep Church is part of a group of six parishes around Lostwithiel. These churches work together for the Gospel in the area, and complement each other in times and styles of worship.
