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.
At City Life Church Truro we love Jesus, we love the city of Truro and the surrounding area, and we believe He has got big plans for His church and this community.
Sunday 16th May: Drop in Communion
10:00am – 11:30am
This Sunday we will be holding a drop in Communion, following the same model we have used previously.
We warmly encourage everyone to join us in church between 10am and 11.30am for a ‘drive in’ or ‘drop in’ celebration of communion.
Live worship music will be playing throughout and will be available on the livestream.
Stewards will direct you to a seat, serve you communion and be available to pray with you.
Please remember that we are not yet allowed to ‘mingle’ inside, but you are welcome to catch up with one another in our outdoor spaces.
For those who do not feel comfortable entering the building you can opt to arrive on foot and take communion on the decking. Alternatively, you may prefer to be served communion in your car in the car park, which will be reserved for you to do this.
If you are unable to join us then we would encourage you to celebrate communion at home on this Sunday.
This will replace our usual service and there will be no after service coffee via Zoom this week.
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)
From Where We Stand
Over the coming months we will be focussing on the statement of faith that we put together and adopted as a church a couple of years ago.
Each week we will focus on a different part of the statement in our Sunday teaching, ‘Word on Wednesday’ and through this reading plan.
Hebrews 12:3 starts with the phrase ‘Consider him’, some of the translations say ‘Consider fully’. The meaning of this word in the original language is “reason up to a conclusion by moving through the needed thought-process” (analysis); to “add things up,” reckoning from “premise to conclusion” especially by repeated reflection that advance up the “levels of truth.” (https://biblehub.com/greek/357.htm)
The hope for this time is that we would use this as an opportunity to ‘consider fully’, to meditate on, some of the fundamental aspects of our faith. I want to really encourage us all, as we work our way through the different headings, to be intentional in asking ourselves what we really believe, what the Holy Spirit wants to reveal to us, and what difference could this make to our life and our faith. It is also an opportunity for us all to think through what we might say about each point as we seek to share our faith with those who don’t yet know Christ. There are of course so many passages relating to each point that are not included in this reading plan. You may want to read around each point for yourself, to find other passages relating to that point.
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.
