Welcome to St Pancras, Pancrasweek. We are a rural church in Devon with a small but active worshiping community. All are welcome at our regular monthly services, held on the fourth Sunday of each month at 9.30am. The grade 2* listed church building is open daily for private prayer and visitors, with guide leaflets, children's trails and informative displays available. As a small parish we are solely reliant upon the generosity of our parishioners and the Parish Giving Scheme makes regular giving very easy.
Thank you for your support!

St Pancras church is a Grade 2* listed church and has stood overlooking the Tamar and serving rural community of this parish for centuries. 

It is not known when the earliest Christian place of worship was built in the parish.  There has been a place of Christian worship in Pancrasweek for at least 1000 years.  The remains of a stand of a former preaching cross can be seen in the churchyard- this is believed to pre-date the church building.

St Pancras was a christian who lived in Ancient Rome.  During the persecution of Christians by Emperor Diocletian he refused to perform a sacrifice to Roman gods.  Diocletian impressed with his determination to resist, promised St Pancras wealth and power.  St Pancras still refused and the emperor ordered him to be beheaded on the Via Aurelia on 12th May 304 AD aged 14.

St Pancras is depicted  in a statue in the porch and in the East window.  Holding a palm leaf - a symbol of martyrdom.

Come and visit this very peaceful and beautiful,  rich with history church. The church is open daily from 9am to 5pm. There are information boards in the porch  and within the church which tell the history of this little church and visitors are most welcome to keep a copy of the church guide.
