On 14 May, Archbishop Justin Welby ordained and consecrated the Rt Revd Chris Goldsmith as our new Bishop of St Germans.

Plans are now gathering apace to welcome Bishop Chris at a special service in Truro Cathedral at 6pm on Sunday 19 May. This invitation is extended to everyone across Cornwall and will be a great opportunity to meet him and hear what he has to say.

Bishop Tim preached at the Eucharistic Service of Ordination and Consecration in Southwark Cathedral. The music was led by the Southwark Cathedral Singers and included inspirational pieces played on the impressive Southwark Cathedral Organ:

  • Prelude and Fugue in B minor (BWV 544), Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Trumpet Voluntary, Jeremiah Clarke
  • Toccata (Symphony No.5), Charles-Marie Widor
  • Missa Sancti Nicolai, Joseph Haydn.
