Archdeacons to embark on annual visitations
Archdeacon Bill Stuart-White and Archdeacon Audrey Elkington will visit the deaneries of the Diocese of Truro for their annual visitations in May 2018
The dates for this year’s visitations are:
|Wednesday 2nd May||Powder, Carnmarth North & South||St Johns, Truro

A key part of the Visitation Service is the official admittance of Churchwardens to office for the coming year. Also during the service, the Archdeacons will deliver a sermon which offers advice, encouragement and support to parishes in general, in particular the Churchwardens.
The Archdeacons will also give every Churchwarden a copy of a magazine called Archdeacons’ Visitation News which will be made available shortly.
