Parish History

 Newquay, (Cornish: Tewynn Pleustri) was a chapelry of  St_Columb_Minor Ancient Parish in Cornwall.

The parish was created 1882 from part of the Ancient Parish and the current church dedicated to St Michael and designed by Sir Ninian Comper, was built in 1911 since the expansion of the town had made the chapelry inadequate.

The church was destroyed by an arson attack on 29 June 1993 but has since been reopened (rededicated in 1996).  The stained glass windows and rood screen feature St Michael, the three other archangels, and Jesus Christ and Mary the Blessed Virgin.
