Diocesan Annual Day of Prayer
This year we are in Truro Cathedral on Saturday 22nd July. You are invited to come and join us. Entitled ‘The Journey’,  it starts at 11am and closes with an act of worship at 2pm.  Feel free to come and go for part or all of the time, as you can and wish.  There will be prayer stations and plenty of space to pray in the Cathedral.  Come and spend some time praying for the diocese, for the mission of the Christian churches here in Cornwall, and for the coming of God’s Kingdom.

Farewell to Bishop Tim
On Saturday 22nd July Bishop Tim is going to preside and preach at the Eucharist in the Cathedral for the last time as the Bishop of Truro.  He invites us all, clergy and people from the parishes, to come and sit together in the Cathedral at 4pm. The service will be relayed outside if there are more than enough people to fill the Cathedral. Bishop Tim says ‘It is a sad day for me of course and I hope you will come, not only to say thanks be to God for the last nine years, but also to continue the theme of the day.  We will pray and think about the pilgrimage God has called us into and I continue on my pilgrimage - and we pray together for the diocese as we now move into a new phase. At the end of the service I will hand over the pastoral staff to be kept in the care of the Dean of Truro and the Cathedral until a new Diocesan Bishop is welcomed.  Following the service there will be refreshments and some short words will be exchanged, I fear!’

Guide Dogs for the Blind
