Opening Times: Gulval Church is open every Thursday between 10am and noon for private prayer or quiet reflection. There is always someone to talk to or offer help. Table top sale with a good selection of books, postcards, soft toys and bric-a-brac are on offer. There is also a 50p table with lots of bargains. We look forward to seeing you.
Gulval churchyard, due to its picturesque location at the heart of the village, opposite the pub, is frequented by walkers daily. As a place of historical significance, and because of its close proximity to ‘St Michael’s Way’ (a pilgrimage walk) it is a heritage landmark and a peaceful place of sanctuary, just a short walk away from Tremeneere Sculpture Gardens.
Parking. Free parking is available at all points around the upper churchyard. It gets busy at the top outside the Coldstreamer. The best place is probably at the bottom of the steps, coming along Possess Lane from Jelbert Way. There is level access from the east gate, but there are a couple of steps to negotiate first. There is step-free access via the top gate (opposite the Coldstreamer) and there are usually spaces hard by the churchyard wall. There is no church car park.
Building and other projects (2021) We are trying to replenish our reserves after forking out for tarmacced paths, a new toilet, emergency repairs to wall memorials and ongoing tree trimming (the churchyard is not closed, so we have all the bills for maintenance) . Our lighting is being gradually improved. (Churchwarden)
