Church Commissioners back bold plan to transform mission in Cornwall

The architects of a visionary £2.8 million plan to transform the Church of England within the Diocese of Truro are this week celebrating, following the news that the Church Commissioners have given their backing to the scheme.

The commissioners have backed the plan and agreed a grant of £1.7 million over six years, to add to the £1.15 million pledged by the Diocese of Truro. The diocesan money will be resourced by specific reserves and will not affect the MMF Call, or the money that comes direct from parishes.

The news effectively gives the green light to the scheme, which is the second phase of the diocese’s Transforming Mission initiative.

Four new hubs

It will see hubs established in four more urban centres: St Austell, Camborne, Liskeard and Truro.
