Faith Stories

Your faith story is as individual as your finger print. Some people will have epic stories, others will have quiet tales but each is unique and important.

Across the Diocese of Truro we feel its important to share the Good News. You don’t have to shout, a soap box isn’t necessary (unless you want to!), a story simply shared one to another still counts.

Many different people from many different walks of life who all share one thing: their faith.
