Set at the edge of the Western Sea, Falmouth is the largest natural deep water port to the Western Approaches.
All Saints is the Church at the Top of the Hill, being almost at the highest point of the town at the top of Killigrew Street. It looks out over a town with a long seafaring tradition that is still maintained together with more modern tourism.

The Foundation stone for this church was laid by the Duke of Cornwall in 1887. Since then the life and worship has continued unabated. It was founded to be a centre of the Catholic Faith as received by the Church of England. The first Parish Priest was Canon Wood who developed the life and worship considerably. After his death the Church took a while to recover and at the same time was dropped into a series of major changes that the dear old C of E was making at that time.
This was an uneasy period for all but in that time, under the guidance of Fr Peter Watts, the Church gained in confidence. This was a gain that was severely dented with the Ordination of Women Measure. A number of the congregation and their priest left, but as ever the ‘faithful few’ fought boldly and the life and worship of the Church has continued. Further changes with the introduction of Common Worship have been taken in its stride.
