First Aid Boxes

If you use anything from the first aid box or find something missing, please inform Val Hocking so she can replace items asap.

Please don't forget to log any medical incident, no matter how small, in the log book in the foyer.

The Foyer

We love to see people stay for coffee and tea after the service. Could we use the whole Foyer or the Church so that it makes it easier for those serving and should prevent accidents.

Help Needed

  • We have an URGENT need for a Church treasurer.
  • Is there anyone who would like to go on the rota for doing teas and coffees after the morning 10.45 service please, It is once every 5 weeks?

Truro Cathedral choristers and four primary schools have created this lovely sung blessing to support the Archbishop of Canterbury's mission to bless people in their everyday lives. They would love us to share it, or make it our own by writing a new verse. You can enjoy it at The Choristers’ and Schools’ Cornish Blessing to welcome Archbishop Welby and bless our communities.


Please could you contact Doreen at with anything for the newsletter. Thank you.
