Truro is Britain’s most southerly city, in a county which once enjoyed tremendous revival at the time of John Wesley. It is reckoned that as much as half of the population of Cornwall were at one time true believers. However, while Wesley evangelised the rest of the county, for many years he ignored what was then the significant stannary town of Truro. Why? Because it was already very well-served by the revivalist Anglican minister Samuel Walker, through whom phenomenal gospel work was done in and around the town.
