St Just's Church, St Just in Roseland, is a Grade I listed parish church in the Church of England Diocese of Truro in St Just in Roseland, Cornwall, England, UK.

History

The church is considered to have been founded around 550 AD in honour of St Just the Martyr. For the first 400 years, it was served by the Celtic clergy from the adjacent cell of Lanzeague. Around 950 AD it was taken from the Celtic Church by the Bishops of Cornwall, Crediton and Exeter. In 1140, the church was given by Robert Warelwast, Bishop of Exeter to the Canons of Plympton Priory, and served by their vicars. In 1189 the patronage was recovered from the Priory by John le Sor, Lord of Tolverne, and from that date the incumbents have been Rectors.

The current church building dates from the 13th century. It was consecrated in 1216 by Simon of Apulia, Bishop of Exeter.

It was restored in 1872 and re-opened by the Bishop on Monday 18 November 1872 who arrived at the church on HMS Ganges, the guest of Captain Tinklar. New pews and the pulpit and reredos were provided. A new stone arch opening into the north transept was provided, and the floor was paved with Minton and Hollins encaustic tiles. The altar rails were removed and the altar placed on a level reached by two granite steps. The seating and other woodwork was executed by Messrs Borlase of St Just, and the mason's work was done by Messrs Clemens of Truro.

The vestry was added in the 20th century.
