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.
We intend to live stream some worship, teaching and prayer via Facebook live from 10am every Sunday morning. This approach will allow you to interact at appropriate times, such as when we pray.

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)

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.
