DSC00276The Bishop of Truro, the Rt Revd Tim Thornton, officially welcomed staff to their new home at Church House on Thursday.

All of Church House’s staff were present to be part of this precious moment, when Bishop Tim prayed God’s blessing on not only the building, but also the people and the work they carry out in their new surroundings.

The Diocesan Team moved from their previous premises at Diocesan House near Kenwyn Church at the end of September after almost 30 years in the building.

Diocesan Secretary Esther Pollard said: “It was lovely to have Bishop Tim officially welcome us to Church House and pray God’s blessing on us and all that we do. The move has been a huge thing for everyone. Church House is a different environment from what we have been used to but already we can see the benefits of having a modern office environment and we welcome our friends from parishes across the county to come and see us. Our door is always open.”
