St. Just-in-Roseland (Cornish: Lannsiek) is a village in Cornwall, England. The village is situated six miles (10 km) south of Truro and two miles (3 km) north of St. Mawes. As a civil parish it includes St. Mawes.

St. Just-in-Roseland is famous for its 13th-century church set in riverside gardens luxuriantly planted with semitropical shrubs and trees, many of which are species rare in England. The church perches on the edge of a tidal creek beside the Carrick Roads on the Fal Estuary just outside the main village. The path from the road to the church is lined with granite blocks carved with quotations and verses taken from the Bible. There is also a Methodist church which is Grade II listed: it dates from the first half of the 19th century.

St. Just-in-Roseland was located in the Powder Hundred and was part of the Truro Rural District from 1894 until 1974.
