1. Action Plan

Truro Cathedral welcomes people of all faiths and none to our services. Our worship is mostly in a traditional style that can be deeply moving in our great building. Our musical resources complement that style and are mostly centred on classical music.

The Cathedral also holds a wide range of both religious and secular events including dementia friendly events.  We welcome all to attend.
