Royal Cornwall Show

The Royal Cornwall Show is everything everyone says it is. Big, colourful, diverse and full of animals, flowers, food and people – lots of people, even when it rains. The Churches Together tent, right by the main entrance, is a great place to take a deep breath, rest your feet or get your children out of their buggies.  You not only get a cup of tea and cake, but the chance to meet, and even pray with, all sorts of interesting people.

Martin Holmes of OAC Ministries will offer to take your picture for the 1000 Faces Project, an art project inspired by Psalm 139 with the Photo-shopping, Instagram-ing generation in mind.

Chris Batt of the Farming Community Network is on hand to confidentially chat through any farming or agricultural issues you might have, from not having enough time to talk, even to your partner, to how to deal with an unexpected bill.

A beautiful prayer tree sparkles in a corner, inviting everyone to hang their prayers on, with prayers said every hour throughout the day.

Creation Fest are running fantastic workshops for children, from sing-a-long sessions to colouring in on a huge scale.

Bells are being rung outside, and inside there is an opportunity to find out about the Scripture Union’s Guardians of Ancora, an exciting game for young people to use on their phones and iPads, based on Bible stories.

Or if you’re planning to get married, hoping or wishing to, pop along to the wedding tent, just along from Churches Together and have a chat about having your wedding in church.

At any time of any day over the course of the Royal Cornwall Show, the Churches Together Tent is a great place to take time out.
