St. Ia, St. Ives Parish Church Cornwall

Welcome to St. Ia, the parish church of St. Ives. It is one of the beautiful cornish churches that are part of the Anglican Diocese of Truro, England (Church of England, C of E). It is dedicated to the Celtic saint St. Ia, and also to St. Andrew, patron saint of Fishermen and St Peter, the Rock. The church is built of Cornish granite, almost on the harbourside of the picturesque seaside town of St. Ives. Its tower is one of the tallest of the cornish churches, standing over eighty feet high, like a shepherd watching over its flock on land and sea.

The present church building was consecrated in 1434, and many Christians have worshipped in the building over the centuries. In 2010 the church celebrated its 600th anniversary of the laying of its foundation stone. It was built for the Love of God as a house of prayer.

The church is open daily and welcomes visitors from all over the world. Please join us for our daily and Sunday worship. The Daily Divine Offices are said at the parish church throughout the week. These are normally led by the parish priest who can be found in the church during these times.

If you are thinking of marriage, the church is a beautiful venue for your wedding ceremony.  Baptisms, counseling and confessions can also be made by arrangement with Canon Andrew our parish priest.

Farwell to Father Diego

On the Feast day of St George a special evening Eucharist was held at St Ives parish church to bid farewell to the Reverend Diego Galanzino who is shortly to take his own parish in Bedfordshire.  Diego will be the Priest in Charge of the parish of All Saints, Houghton Regis in the Diocese of St Albans. In his sermon, the vicar of St Ives Canon Andrew Gough, paid tribute to Diego’s four year training in the parish of St Ives and hoped that his time had equipped him for a ministry where he would now be the key person to whom many will come for answers and where he will be asked to make a response and deal with it.  Diego was particularly praised for the wisdom and knowledge he used in the study groups he ran in the parish. After the service a reception with wine and light refreshments were served and Diego was presented with a gift of a picture called Cornubia – Land of the Saints by John Miller. At St Johns in the Fields church a buffet lunch was served on Sunday 3rd May and a picture of St Ives was presented in thanks for his ministry in the parish of Halsetown.
