St Mary’s Church
Located in the centre of Callington, and consecrated in 1438, St. Mary’s Church was initially a chapel of ease to South Hill. The Church was built after a successful petition by Chief Townsman Nicholas Assheton, and other members of the Parish, for a Cemetery within the town.
Assheton, and his wife Margaret are buried within the church, under the Chancel floor. The spot is marked by a marble slab inlaid with brass effigies of the couple. Also interred within the Church is Robert Willoughby, 1st Baron Willoughby de Broke, Lord of the Manor of Callington, and steward of the Duchy of Cornwall, who was High Sheriff of Cornwall in 1479, and of Devon in 1480. His tomb is marked by an alabaster monumental effigy.

Mustard Seed Evangelical Church
The Mustard Seed Church, founded in 1909, is located on Launceston Road. The Church upholds evangelical traditions of Bible-based prayer, worship, and teaching, whilst not being affiliated with any religious denomination. Its name hearkens back to the Mustard Seed Guild of the early 1900s, whose secretary, Helen M. C. explained that it arose because “the desire to help the missionaries burns in us like mustard”.
The Mustard Seed’s congregation gathers for worship at the following times:
Every Sunday: 10.45 am
Every second Sunday: 6.30 pm
