Leader to visit
FOR the first time in living memory, the head of the Church of England is scheduled to visit Penwith.
Justin Welby, who took over as the Archbishop of Canterbury from Dr Rowan Williams in February, will be in Penzance and Newlyn on Saturday, November 16, as part of a three-day visit to the Truro diocese.
After a tour of the Penwith College campus and a breakfast question-and-answer session with students, the Archbishop will visit the Giving Shop in the Wharfside Shopping Centre before moving on to St Mary's Church.
There, in a morning service for people who have been recently bereaved or who have cared for those who are bereaved, he will speak about hope in dark times.

Mousehole Male Voice Choir will be singing, along with the Penlee Cluster choir.
After the service, the Archbishop will accompany crew members from Penlee lifeboat across to Newlyn and be given a trip around Mount's Bay in the lifeboat Ivan Ellen.
Coinciding with the Archbishop's visit, the church is also home to an exhibition called Hope In Darkness.
Running from November 2 to 17, the show will feature work by sculptor Tim Shaw, recently elected as one of only 80 Royal Academicians, and Roy Ray, whose Ground Zero Panel is in the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York.
