Since construction began on Truro Cathedral in 1880 it has proven to be a very special place indeed, filled with prayer and worship, heritage and history, treasures and inspiration. The three-spired cathedral is home to the world renowned Father Willis Organ, birthplace of the famous Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and houses one of the finest cathedral choirs in the UK.
Today, Truro Cathedral is a vibrant and active church at the heart of Cornwall’s great little city and welcomes over 200,000 visitors every year to enjoy a rich and full pattern of worship, alongside an engaging and varied schedule including music, education and mission events.
Whatever the reason for visiting, the cathedral is a focal point for so much in our common life, both in the city of Truro and in the county of Cornwall. Truro Cathedral was built by the people of Cornwall for all people and, well over 100 years on, it is important that we care for this special place so that it continues to serve its many different purposes for centuries to come.
Run as an independent, self-funded entity, Truro Cathedral does not benefit from any regular government support. All day-to-day running costs, including maintaining the incredible choir plus all restoration and renovation costs have to be raised by the cathedral itself.
There are many ways you can engage with the cathedral. You can attend our services, a guided tour or a lunchtime organ recital, or visit the shop or restaurant. If you would like to be more involved, you could become a volunteer, make a donation or leave a gift in your Will.
