Thank you for visiting our website. This website is intended to give visitors an insight into our parish, its rwo churches, our church life and our outreach activities.
The Parish of Par is in the Diocese of Truro in Cornwall and is situated on the south coast of Cornwall, between the town of St Austell and the Port of Fowey.
The parish has two churches, St Mary's Church, Biscovey, and the Church of the Good Shepherd, Par. Further information on both these churches is given elsewhere in this webste.
Within the Diocese we are registered as a Fairtrade Parish for the sale and use of tea, coffee and sugar.
Our Parish is currently in an Interregnum following the retirement of our previous Parish Priest in October 2011. We are looking forward to the challenges facing our two congregations over the coming months. Fortunately, we have two very active Churchwardens who are excellent organisers. By their efforts, and with the support of a group of well established and very vibrant committees, we are ensuring that our new priest will inherit a well run, viable and optimistic parish.
The Reverend Paul Spreadbridge will be licensed and installed as the Priest-in-Charge of the Parishes of Par and Charlestown at St Paul's Church, Charlestown on Wednesday 22 May 2012 at 7.00pm. We eagerly anticipate his arrival.
CONTINUING NOTE: During our interregnum our services have been subject to change from our displayed standard service times. Some changes in service times will inevitably continue until the arrival of Father Paul so, if you wish to visit one of our churches in the coming months, we suggest that you view our monthly Parish Diary on this website. This diary is regularly updated to give notice of any temporary changes in our service times.
