Welcome from Canon Paul

Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God Romans 15:7

Canon Paul CumminsThank you for visiting our diocesan website.

We invite you to experience the joy of Christ in our diocese, which spans 226 miles covering the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. There are 102 churches and chapels stretching from the Holy Family parish in Penwith, (that includes Penzance, St Ives, Hayle and the Isles of Scilly), in the west, to parts of Bournemouth in the east.

Jesus commanded us to “love one another: just as I have loved you” and we seek to offer this sentiment to you whether you are a member of our diocesan family, or you are from other faith or none or just seeking information. You are in my prayers. And I ask you to keep me in yours!

Your brother and servant in Christ.
