Big World Fair – April 20
The Big World Fair will take place in Truro Cathedral on April 20, from 10am – 3:30pm. The cathedral will be full of stands with information and activities from a wide range of local, national and international mission and development agencies. See the timetable here.
The event will be opened by Bishop Hugh Nelson and speakers include representatives from Tearfund, Christian Aid, Five Talents and Edukid who will be sharing inspiring stories about their work, how Cornish churches and schools are already getting involved, and how you and your church may get involved.
There will be performances throughout the day, both inside and out, from the fabulous Cornwall Youth Choir, the inspiring Ukrainian Harmony Ladies choir, the Roseland Academy samba band and local singer-songwriter and former missionary kid, Isaac Salaman. There will also be drumming workshops for anyone to join in and have a go with African drumming.
We will have an exciting and interactive activity for children to get involved with running throughout the day.
All are welcome – there will be something for everyone. Come for the whole day or drop in and out through the day. Please book this date in your diaries and spread the word amongst your churches and friends!
Please feel free to download the poster and use it to publicise the event. Paper copies will be sent round all churches in due course.
Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care in an integral part of our diocese life.
