The Archbishop of Canterbury will be in Cornwall this week for a three-day pastoral visit.

His second trip across the Tamar since being named as successor to Rowan Williams, the Most Reverend Justin Welby plans a range of engagements.

The churchman's itinerary starts on Friday morning with a visit to Launceston food bank, followed by a town centre walkabout. Among his engagements on Saturday will be breakfast with sixth form students at Penwith College in Penzance, town centre walkabout, visit to Penlee Lifeboat station and an afternoon service in Truro Cathedral.

Diocesan communications officer David Watson said: "The main purpose is to support clergy and other individuals engaged in Christian ministry and service to less-well-off communities across Cornwall."

With services in Liskeard and Bodmin on Sunday, Archbishop Welby will round off his tour back in Launceston for a Bible study session with Christian skaters.
