Falmouth on Wikipedia.

All Saints (1887) on Killigrew Street. SW 8030 3244. Bill Henderson. Another view, Paul E. Barnett (2015). Link.
 Grade II* listed.

A former Bible Christian Chapel was at one point a drill hall, and is now a cinema. Identified by Janet Gimber. It stands on Brook Street and Berkeley Vale. SW 8049 3274. Paul E. Barnett (2014).

Cemetery Chapels in Falmouth Cemetery. They're identified on large scale O.S. maps as Nonconformist at SW 8037 3175 and Church of England at SW 8037 3171. Paul E. Barnett (2015).

Central Spiritualist Church and Healing Sanctuary on Quarry Hill. SW 8054 3284. James Murray (2009). Another view, Paul E. Barnett (2015). Link.

An old directory of 1844 mentions a Chapel of Ease on Stratton Place. I can find no trace of it on the earliest available map (1896). However, it's possible that St. Michael and All Angels on what is now Stratton Terrace is meant, for which see below.

Church of the Holy Spirit on Laburnum Drive. SW 7970 3331. Paul E. Barnett (2020). A 2012 News story.

Earle's retreat chapel and almshouses (1869) on Trelawney Road. Another view. SW 8071 3246. Both Paul E. Barnett (2016). Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1869.

The former Ebenezer Hall on Trevethan Road, now in commercial use. Although not marked as a place of worship on any available maps, this source says that it is a former chapel. Can you supply a little history? SW 8033 3290. Paul E. Barnett (2016).

Emmanuel Baptist Church (1939) on Western Terrace. SW 8035 3220. Paul E. Barnett (2014). Link.

The former Falmouth Synagogue (1808-1880) on Vernon Place. SW 8082 3276. Paul E. Barnett (2016). Link. Grade II listed.

King Charles the Martyr, consecrated in 1665. Another view, the interior, Warrior Chapel, altar, side-chapel altar, East window, the heavily carved wooden pulpit, and the font. The coat of arms for Queen Anne is apparently fairly rare. There is a memorial to the composer Joseph Antonio Emidy (who I have to confess I wasn't aware of). His is an interesting story - see here on Wikipedia. SW 8095 3262. All Carole Sage (2017). Link. Grade II* listed.

The Methodist Church on Killigrew Street, and its interior. I haven't been able to establish what flavour of Methodism it originally was, but it has the look of Wesleyan about it. SW 8069 3289. Both James Murray (2009). Link. The About Us page dates it to 1876, the third church on the site.

New Life Church on Dracaena Avenue. The name-stone says "Full Gospel Church". SW 7999 3268. Paul E. Barnett (2015). By 2022 the church had closed, and the building was being used commercially.

The former Primitive Methodist Chapel, now in use as theatrical rehearsal rooms. It's dated here to 1832-1939. SW 8077 3279. Paul E. Barnett (2016).

St. Mary Immaculate (R.C.) stands at the corner of Kimberley Place and Killigrew Road. SW 8041 3261. Bill Henderson. Another view, Paul E. Barnett (2015). Link. Grade II listed.

Salvation Army on Brook Street. SW 8046 3273. Paul E. Barnett (2014). By 2022 the Army had also taken over the former Argos building nearby on Berkeley Vale - Salvation Army Church. SW 8051 3279. Paul E. Barnett (2022).

The U.R.C. (1867) on Berkeley Vale was originally Bible Christian, later Methodist. A 2020 news item shows that it is now closed. SW 8041 3274. Paul E. Barnett (2014). Grade II listed.
