This lovely Victorian church was designed by the architect J Piers St Aubyn, and was consecrated in 1861. This is the third church on the site, the first one being in recorded use as early as 1309. At the time of the consecration the Church of All Saints was a Chapel of Ease, a daughter Church, of St Hilary (Marazion only gained its ‘full Parish Status’ at the Easter Vestry Meeting in 1893).Normally, services are on every Sunday – 9:45am Holy Communion
Wednesdays – 9:15am Morning Prayer
Fridays – 9:45 am Said Eucharist
Wednesdays & Saturdays in Lent – 16:00 Sacred Space
Marazion Church is perhaps best renowned for the hymn-writer Henry Francis Lyte (1793-1847) who served as Curate in Marazion in 1817 and famously penned the hymns ‘Praise my soul, the king of heaven’ and ‘Abide with me’. (The words of the latter adorn the Marazion War Memorial opposite the Church).
More recently, All Saints, Marazion has had a chequered history, being united for a time with the Parish Church at Gulval, before joining the United Benefice of Mounts Bay linking the Parish with St Hilary, Perranuthnoe, and Ludgvan.
A major refurbishment campaign under the direction of Mr Philip Fooks in the 1990s put the Church in the fine structural condition it enjoys today (and from whence date the beautiful kneelers).
The church has many interesting stained glass windows, and the free leaflet-guide provides an interesting tour of these and the church as a whole. A small church shop is run during the summer months.
