Welcome to City Life Church.

(Formerly Truro Baptist Church)

If you are new to City Life Church, or are thinking about coming along, whether to a Sunday service or to any of the events and activities that we hold, we want you to know that we will do our best to make sure you feel welcome.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,  so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:3-6)

Word on a Wednesday:

Each week we record a longer, more in depth talk which follows the reading programme. These are available from the church’s  YouTube channel
We gather on Zoom Wednesday’s at 7.30pm to consider the related questions and pray together.

We encourage you to arrange your own Bible study groups throughout the week to discuss these videos.

Please contact the Church office for details of how to connect to our Zoom gatherings.

40 Days: ARISE

As we enter into this new year, and this new chapter in our life together as City Life Church, we are going to spend the next two months really focussing upon and praying into the five points of ARISE (Ambitious for the Kingdom, Restored Identity, Inside Out Living, Servants of All and Empowered by the Spirit). Each week we will be looking at a different aspect of ARISE with readings relating to it through the week.

Alongside the daily readings we are going to have 40 days of prayer and fasting. The plan is to fast from Monday to Friday for the coming 8 weeks (40 days). This will of course look different for each of us, it may involve abstaining from certain meals or foods, or activities, and then using this as a constant reminder to keep lifting our eyes and hearts to Jesus and the fact that we are new creations and we live by the Spirit. You may want to also use this time to really pray into something that is on your heart or something you are looking for breakthrough or change in.

I want to really encourage everyone to do this, even if you have never done it before . . . It will make a difference to your life and your faith.

As you focus, fast, meditate and pray you may want to use these 5 points to help you:

Reflection: Think about where you are at with the focus for that week. What do you really believe? What is your experience? What would it look like for you to take hold of this point more than you have at present?
Recognise: As you bring your heart (your ambitions, affections, emotions and longings) in prayer celebrate the areas where you have grown and be honest about the areas where you struggle, are fearful, or need to grow.
Repentance: Do you need to change your thinking or behaviours in any way? Bring both your sorrow and your willingness to change and grow before the Lord.
Revelation: Really think about what God may be saying to you (and to us as a church) through the passages that you have read, or others that may come to mind.
Receive: Invite the Holy Spirit to simply come and minister to you . . . be expectant and don’t rush this time.


This is the start of a 21 day UNIQUE diet.
Why is it unique? Because each and every one of us are unique.
Make a decision to take 10-12 minutes each day to watch John & Sally go though the course. I
t’s not just about loosing weight, although many will, but it is about our total health.

A Bucketful of Songs

Barney Trevivian has been faithfully leading worship for well over thirty five years and has blessed us all with his guitar, vocals and enthusiasm.

On Saturday 22nd February Barney, joined by a host of musicians and singers, performed fourteen worship and gospel songs he’s written over the last forty-two years.

CD’s are available to purchase with the proceeds split between rescuing children off the streets of Nairobi (Tumaini Kwa Watoto) and YWAM (Youth With A Mission).

You can also find the Album “A Bucketful of Songs” on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube Music, Google Play & Amazon Music.

It was, as expected, a great evening of fun, music and worship.

I'm drawn to Danis picture behind Matt with the arms raised high... and the Truth that "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom!"

when I worked in an office, whenever someone made a spreadsheet work in some way, we never danced around and hugged each other

Chris you are a true son of the living God - thank you for sharing from your experience. You are so easy to listen to.

The ring you now have a true ring on your finger from the king of Kings we are children of the King!

Great - we can see you and hear you now Matt!

Thank you Father that you hold us in your right hand and that you hear and answer our prayers. You are indeed a great God!

As Moses prayed for Israel, they began to win the battle. As we, today pray, seeking God's face, Abba Father will answer the prayer of our hearts. Abba Father loves Cornwall.

I am who you say I am - help me to not listen to the lies of the enemy about myself

I pray for my students, lots of whom have mental health problems, and are finding another lockdown hard.

So lovely to see everyone appearing!! Good morning everyone!!

Wonderful selection of songs James - thank you!

Thanks Chris, good word from God’s heart.

Chris - you illustrated so beautifully and did it so accessibly for us all. Thank-you!

We pray for your grace for those who need it right now.

Good morning everyone be blessed today,

The donkey is a symbol of humility - not a camel like the Magi - not a horse like a general but a lowly beast of burden (and traditionally ‘stupid’ creature) chosen by Jesus - that’s like me! 😅Helen

Eph 4, there is one body, one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called, one Lord, one Faith , one baptism, one God and Father who is over all and through all and in all!

What a tender, faithful, powerful Father

Thank you Father that you accept me just as I am

Sat here listing some of the places in Psalms that tell us that God will save us and hold us in his right hand:- Ps 17:7 18:35 60:5 63:8 73:23 108:6 139:10

Please pray for those who are struggling with mental illness who are unable to cope with anxiety

The same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us!

Lifted and shifted = equipped and sent out

I use to have asthma. Jesus set me free.i praise Abba Father for the very breath I breathe.

May we run & not grow weary - Walk & not faint!

This page has been renamed due to Truro Baptist Church changing its name to City Life Church. After a lot of thought and discussion we decided to make the change as we felt 'City Life Church' really reflects the focus our church and our faith, and what we want to see in Truro and the surrounding area. ...
