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 Gatherings – Autumn 2021

The weekends at City Life Church tend to be the time when we gather in larger groups to encounter God’s presence together and be inspired, challenged, encouraged and equipped for the days ahead. Each weekend has a slightly different format and focus – you can see that below.

Because we recognise that not everyone can get into the building, or may not want to at this time, we will continue to livestream two gatherings a month on our Facebook channel, on 2nd and 4th Sunday. These will also be uploaded to our YouTube channel.

1st Sunday (ARISE and GO!)

This is an intergenerational gathering when we intentionally focus on the different parts of ARISE (a series of foundational principles that we build on as a church). The aim for these times is for everyone to explore, engage with, and really think about what it means to walk in these principles that are central to our life as a church.

2nd and 4th Sundays (ARISE and GROW!)

The emphasis these weeks is on building everyone up from the Bible, with more time given to creative and inspiring teaching and will usually be followed by a time of response to what we believe God is saying to us. While the talk is happening the children will go to Powerhouse or Youth groups where they will encourage each other to GROW in Jesus. These gatherings will be livestreamed.

3rd Sundays (ARISE and GLOW!)

The Bible talks about God generously giving good gifts to his children. The Bible also tells us that God has done everything through the Cross for us to experience healing, restoration, and peace. The emphasis of these Sundays is to really explore and experience this together. There will be a shorter talk and lots of time for worship and praying and ministering to one another.

Powerhouse Plus

On the 3rd Saturday of each month we will gather for ‘Powerhouse Plus’.  We will have breakfast together, activities, games, craft, story, worship, encounter time as family – this will be open to families, grandparents, and everyone to come along together, it’s not just for the children.



Sunday services Online

For those who do not feel comfortable entering the building we will still live stream our Sunday services via Facebook live from 10am on 2nd and 4th Sundays.
This approach will allow you to interact via the comments 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)

September 2021: A Time to Pray & Fast

As we journey into the coming months and years as the Church in Truro, and as we emerge from what has been a challenging time for our community and our churches, we believe it would be a good to spend the month of September praying and fasting together for Truro and the surrounding area.

To help us and unite together as we do this, we will be using the book of Nehemiah to guide us as we journey through the month. Each day there is a reading from the book of Nehemiah for us to meditate upon. We will also have a focus for prayer for different aspects of the community each day.

How the month looks will of course look different for each of us. When it comes to fasting it could involve abstaining from certain meals or foods, or activities, and then using this as a constant reminder through the month to keep lifting our eyes and hearts to Jesus in prayer.

Sat 25th Sept: 9am 4pm, Truro Cathedral Each hour, on the hour, an opportunity to pray, led by the Cathedral chaplains.
Sun 3rd Oct: 3pm: Truro Methodist Church Forecourt A public worship and prayer gathering to conclude the month.

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.

CLICK HERE to see the latest word on Wednesday’s.
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.
