St. Clement (Cornish: Moresk) is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England. It is situated southeast of Truro in the valley of the Tresillian River. There is a smaller village at Malpas in the south of the parish.

St Clement is attractive for tourists: aside from the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside they come to see the village church and its associated conservation projects that are maintained by members of the local community. Unlike some other villages in the district, the village of St Clement has changed very little in recent times.
