GORAN - The Parish Church is dedicated to St Goran



Vicarage: (01726) 842229
Tower Bells
Saint Goran's stands on the site of a Norman built cruciform church, some parts of which remain and are incorporated into the church which was later built onto the site, evolving more or less as many older churches, with additions such as the South aisle in the late 1 4th century, and the tower later in the 15th century, while the North doorway is apparently of the 1 3th century.

Within the nave there are 53 ancient beech (pew) ends, more than in most churches; while in the chancel are some fine examples of more modern wood carvings.

Services:
Sundays 9.30am (usually Holy communion)
Wednesdays 10am Holy Communion


GORAN HAVEN - Dedicated to St Just; Chapel of Ease



Vicarage - same as Goran

St Just (Chapel of Ease) stands well down into that part of the parish which is the old fishing village of Goran Haven, possibly resting on the footings of a very ancient building, but the present building is mainly 15th Century. It is a gem of a little church which has had a somewhat chequered history, especially after the Reformation, when it was closed as a place of worship apparently, and became a "fish cellar" and net store, until the 1 9th century, when it was restored to religious worship.

Services:
Sundays alternating between 8.15am and 11.15am;
the later time is usually Matins
