St Melor's

St. Melor's



St. Melor's services are traditional Book of Common Prayer (BCP) services. These include morning prayers, Communion and our famous Choral Evensong where the Choir often sing an anthem. Nine lessons and carols encompass people throughout the parish. A group of harpists and handbells occasionally perform and the all age Bell ringers play most morning services, and for special services like weddings. 

Service pattern goes as follows:

Evensong - 1st and 3rd Sundays 6.30pm

Holy Communion - 2nd Sunday 11.15am

Matins - 4th Sunday 11.15am

More special services and events include: Good Friday reflections at the cross, Walk to the Holy well and the annual Teddy tumble. 


The Church

The community of Linkinhorne values their Church and the sanctity of its place in the Parish. The congregation values tradition and formal worship. The Church itself has a wealth of history, this is shown by the paintings on its walls and its architecture. St. Melor's is a place of worship, prayer, and quiet contemplation.


The parish of Linkinhorne

The parish of Linkinhorne is a collection of villages divided by the river Lynher which runs from North to South. The chief villages are Churchtown, Caradon, Henwood, Minions, Rillaton, Rilla Mill and Upton Cross. These are quaint villages with a big community feel. The name Linkinhorne actually means Church site of Kenhoarn. This Parish sits on granite, which forms vast hills and Tors.
