St Michael and All Angels Church, Penwerris is a parish church of the Church of England located in Penwerris, near Falmouth, Cornwall. The church is Anglo-Catholic and under the care of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet rather than the diocesean bishop.

The church was originally dedicated to the Holy Trinity, but this was later changed to St Michael & All Angels.[when?] It is a plain rectangular building of stone erected in 1827 and opened on 9 January 1828. It consists of a nave only and a western gallery.[1] Penwerris only became a parish in 1848; until then it was part of the parish of Budock.[2]

Organ

The church has a two manual pipe organ by Hele & Co dating from 1889.
