Royal Cornwall Show

On a beautiful Cornish summer’s evening, Bishop Mark was the guest preacher at the opening service for this year’s Royal Cornwall Show at Wadebridge.  The Anglican Bishop of Truro, the Rt Rev Tim Thornton was this year’s Show President and welcome the bishop and they were joined on the platform by Rev Steve Wild, this year’s President of the Methodist Conference.  The stands were packed with worshippers and during the service Pelynt Male Voice choir sang and the St Minver Band led the music.  Bishop Tim commissioned those who were to act as chaplains during the Show. Afterwards, everyone repaired to the Churches Together Tent for the traditional pasty and some fine Cornish ale!
