The Diocese of Truro is currently looking to recruit skilled and experienced volunteers (still working or retired) to share their talents and strengthen our governance.

Do you have skills and experience that might stretch beyond your local church? Are you looking to maintain your skills and experience outside of the workplace? Are you looking for a new challenge or feel you still have a lot to give?

The diocese includes over 300 churches in more than 200 parishes across the whole of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (and two parishes in Devon). We are made up of thousands of volunteers and clergy working together to support our communities. The Truro Diocesan Board of Finance (TDBF) Ltd is responsible for supporting this work by providing governance, resources, and guidance. While the governance is led by the Bishops Diocesan Council, chaired by the Bishop of Truro, they are supported by volunteers bringing a wealth of expertise to a number of expert committees.

Each role offers the opportunity to have a real impact on a large organisation that is recognised in every community in our diocese. We hold significant assets and responsibilities, which we take seriously, and want to engage the best, most able, individuals to hold us to account. Most importantly, these roles provide the opportunity to offer significant Christian service to our Church.  These roles are:

  • Chair of the Truro Diocesan Board of Finance
  • Chair of Investment Management Committee
  • Chair of the Glebe Management Committee
  • Member of the Glebe Management Committee
  • Member of Property Management Committee

The time commitment varies depending on the role, but most committees meet either online or as hybrid, so travel is not a barrier to participation.
