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.

Sunday services

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.

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.


As one of the churches in our city we are praying this blessing of God’s hope, joy and peace for you and your household.
If there is anything specific you would like us to pray for then please let us know through our website, by email, or by leaving a message on 01872 241984 and we will pray.

You don’t have to leave names or contact details if you would rather stay anonymous, we can still pray.

Good morning all, so good to welcome you all this morning.

We are going to consider Jesus this morning. Lifting our praise and worship and our words through testimony.

The invitation to Nathanael in this moment was so simple, but would change his life forever. Come and See!

This morning let's come and see Jesus. Let's have life transforming moments, it changes everything.

Yet living without sin, in perfect connection and communion with the Father and by the power of and intimancy with the Holy Spirit. His life and ministry flowed out of this.

Come Holy Spirit, pray for burdens to be lifted in the name of Jesus Christ. Let the freedom of Christ fill hearts and minds.

So as we behold Him today, as we worship Him today, we are going to pray that we would see Him at work amongst us.

Imagine Jesus walking into your room, he walks close, reach out and touch Him.

Matthew 28 v 20 'And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age'.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. Romans 8 v 28

Jesus is your friend and He knows what is important to you.

We like Jesus have the Word of God, Prayer, the community of faith and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is so real and we need to 'ask him' to come in to our lives.

Nathanael acted on: information, inclination and invitation. Come and See!

'Come, follow me' Jesus said, 'and I will send you out to fish for people' Matthew 4 v 19

Small groups are up and running, please contact Hannah

Praying at the green splat each morning at 8.30am

We lift your name high Lord Jesus, we worship you.

Holy Spirit come and meet with us now, deep, deep down.

We receive the word of truth, that is powerful.

Come Holy Spirit, take hold of us today, in Jesus name.

So that we can walk like him and see the things He saw.

Monday and Thursday praying at 7am

Word of Wednesday - 'Why did Jesus die?'

Happy Fathers Day

Morning Everyone. This coming Sunday as we gather together, online and in the building, we are going to be continuing our series looking at what we believe – this week we are looking at Jesus. In this week’s ‘Word on Wednesday’ we looked at the moment in John’s Gospel when the disciples were first being called. In this passage Philip says to Nathanael, ‘come and see’, he was inviting him to come and meet Jesus. This Sunday I would like us to simply ‘come and see’ Jesus, and would ask as many as possible to share a moment in life of Jesus from the Gospels that has really touched, changed or challenged you. For those who want to, please come ready to share (keeping it brief), and if you are joining online please use the live feed and we will share with the everyone. As we ‘come and see’, and worship together, we are then going to pray out of what is shared giving space for Jesus, by His Spirit, to minister to us and through us.

(Don’t forget that Michelle is ‘Braving the Shave’ for Macmillan Cancer Support at the end of the service so please come ready to support her)

The father heart of God is the shelf that supports all the work of the church.

God is our loving Father and when the weight seems too heavy to carry He comes and scoops us up in His arms and carries our burdens and gives us His strength

Good morning hope everybody is well

Will fill you in later Wendy on Immi's progress. But home and doing well

Morning from Bryan and Mary here in the Forest of Dean. This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice

I became full of Spirit, and felt the Spirit move. The words from the lady (don't know her name) filled me with hope...thank you Father God

Morning church

Our view of Father God effects how we relate to one another. We should reflect God's love in all we do. We are His children. Adopted into His family

In the run up to the #G7 summit next week, we met in the park this morning to pray for our environment, our leaders and our planet. Our world is facing not only the Covid-19 crisis, but an environmental crisis and a humanitarian crisis. 
Our message to world leaders is that talk is cheap but these crises demands action now.
