Truro Diocese International Links Committee

Big World Fair, 20th April 2024

“Learning and growing together with people across the globe”


The Truro Diocese International Links committee will be holding a one day World Fair in Truro Cathedral to encourage individuals and parishes to engage with and learn about international links. The fair will focus on International links but will also highlight local mission.

We hope to include representatives and displays from organisations from around the country as well as local organisations, together with a programme of speakers and performers.

Inside the cathedral will be exhibition stands and interactive activities from different organisations, and speakers and performers throughout the day. There will also be provision for children and families, and outreach to those attending. Activities will also take place outside the cathedral. (weather permitting)


We aim to:

  • create a joyful and inspiring event enabling people to think more widely about the world and to  get involved internationally and/or locally,
  • raise the profile of international mission and development and encourage people to engage
  • inspire people to pray for the world;
  • give international mission and development organisations from across the country the opportunity to showcase their work, alongside information about our diocesan international links and local organisations;
  • welcome and provide for visitors, and create the opportunity to network;
  • include aspects of outreach and evangelism.

Expected Audience

We would like to attract clergy, church officers and individuals from across our diocese, as well as from other churches and denominations. We would also like to attract members of the public with an interest in world issues and development. We would like people of all ages, including families and children to feel welcome and to find something of interest available for them.

Anticipated Outcomes

  • People are encouraged to think more widely about the wider world around them and their brothers and sisters across the globe.
  • Churches and individuals across Cornwall are encouraged and inspired to engage with international links and world mission, and with local mission in their communities
  • The Diocese of Truro builds deeper relationships with international mission and development organisations, other churches in Cornwall and local organisations from within and outside the Church of England
