Deaf Church

Deaf Church is a community of people from across Cornwall who worship using BSL (British Sign Language). We come together each week for a range of events: Bible study, prayer, worship and fellowship. We comprise a full range of ages and different denominations, and are united by our deafness or use of BSL. Anyone is welcome to join us – deaf or hearing – but we only provide an English spoken translation for our monthly services. At other times people need to be BSL users.

Rural Affairs

Cornwall is still largely an agricultural county. Around 75% of all the land in Cornwall is farmed in some way and most parishes  include some farmland. In recent years, partly as a result of advances in technology and partly as a consequence of financial constraints, farms have employed many fewer people and farmers have become increasingly isolated. The Church, at parish, county and national level, has a vital ministry to this industry. Support is demonstrated in a variety of ways, usually in conjunction with the Methodist Church.

World Church Committee

Much of the work of the Committee is to continue to raise awareness of the Church in other parts of the world, and especially within the Dioceses with which Truro has formally established links. Whilst there are strong links and a regular exchange of personnel between Cornwall and Sweden and South Africa, there are many other long established parochial links with other parts of the world church, including Peru, central Africa, India and South America.
