TRURO Cathedral has introduced a booking system as it opens up following coronavirus restrictions.

The first service following lockdown was held on Sunday, July 5, following strict guidelines.

Following the experience of its first two services, two changes are now being introduced.

From Sunday, July 19, a new advance booking system for Sunday Eucharists and the introduction of an additional Sunday Eucharist at 11.30am each Sunday will be in place.

Dean of Truro, Roger Bush, said: “The pandemic is a new situation for us all and though we try to anticipate the best way to respond to the ever-changing situation, sometimes it is only by doing and learning that we realise better solutions.

"The Sunday Eucharists over the past fortnight have both been well attended, but due to social distancing there is limited capacity.

"We have introduced these changes in the hope to be able provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to safely join us for a Sunday Eucharist in the cathedral each week.”
