Phillack
has been in the civil parish of Hayle

since 1935; before that it was a separate parish in its own right.[3] Phillack
Phillack
parish was originally in Redruth
Redruth
Registration District but the village now comes under Camborne- Redruth
Redruth
Registration District. There is some dispute over the origins of the name. In the 17th century, Phillack
Phillack
was believed to refer to the Irish Saint Felicitas who is said to have founded Phillack

church in the 6th century. However, a 10th-century Vatican codex mentions a Saint Felec of Cornwall

who is believed to have lived about the same time and may be dedicatee of the parish church[3]

St Felicitas and St Piala's Church, Phillack
St Felicitas and St Piala's Church, Phillack
was originally the parish church also of Hayle: it was built in the 15th century and rebuilt in 1856 by William White but the tower is original. It is part of the Godrevy Team Ministry [4] The font is probably not medieval; half a coped stone is in the churchyard.[5] Antiquities[edit] Two early stones have been found embedded in the original village church. One bears a 'Constantine' form of a Chi-Rho cross which may date to the 5th century; it was afterwards rebuilt into the wall directly above the apex of the arch of the doorway of the new church. The second is simple memorial stone bearing the name of 'Clo[tualus] [son of] Mo[bra]ttus', dated between the fifth to eighth centuries, and now stands in the churchyard.[6] Arthur G. Langdon (1896) recorded the existence of six stone crosses in the parish, including two in the churchyard. The others were at Copperhouse, at Bodriggy, in a field and in the rectory garden.[7]
