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)

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.

It’s drop-in communion at church today.

Arrive any time between 10 and 11:30 to be served communion within your group. There will be worship in the church and you are welcome to come in and stay as long as you wish, or we can serve you outside on the decking, where there’s also an opportunity to stay and catch up with others, or come to the car park and we can serve you in your car.

Hope you can make it

Good morning all, so good to welcome you. We have Powerhouse and Youth in the building today, really exciting day.

Lord, we love you and we are here for you. Please show us your pleasure this morning. Holy Spirit come and speak to us.

We thank you Lord that we are with our church family online and in the building.

16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

O come to the altar The Father's arms are open wide Forgiveness was bought with The precious blood of Jesus Christ.

We feast on the Grace of God. His provision for us, through what Christ did for us on the cross.

Hebrews 13:14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.

All our hope is in Jesus Thank God that yesterday's gone All our sins are forgiven I've been washed by the blood

No Word on Wednesday this week. We are taking a break until we begin the next reading plan in a few weeks.

15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

Good morning all. It's Toby and Lynda on the feed this morning. Welcome.

We praise you for your faithfulness.

Let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise.

We will sing of the goodness of God.

Tony is praying for us all.

O Come to the Altar (Elevation Worship)

Hebrews 13 v 15

No live stream next Sunday (16th May) as we are having a drop in communion. You can sit inside or outside or even come in your car and we will serve you.

Hebrews12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

This is Amazing Grace (Phil Wickham) This is amazing grace This is unfailing love That You would take my place That You would bear my cross You laid down Your life That I would be set free Oh, Jesus, I sing for All that You've done for me

Hebrews 13 9:15 9 Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. 15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

Just a reminder that there is a church meeting on Monday 17th. It will be a blended meeting, both in the building and online.

What are you glad for this morning? Please share on the feed.

They all had their shaky moments, mistakes and wrong turns. Yet in this chapter they were commended and honoured for their faith. They all had their 'As Far As' moment.

Regardless of the outcome, God is really pleased when we step forward in faith. We are putting our faith on the line. verse 6

The writer goes on to say at the beginning of chapter 12 that they are like a great cloud of witnesses cheering us on.

We need Faith to take hold of the 'As Far As'. Because Faith, by its nature, will always explore the more of God and His purposes for us.

FAITH v 1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. Hebrews 11

Bibles at the ready! Hebrews 11. Talking about Faith today, we are expectant that the Lord is going to meet with us today.

builds an expectation to grow beyond the point that we currently are at.

We lift our hands high in praise, it's you we adore.

Powerhouse starts next Sunday, we are so excited! Let's pray for the children this week as they get ready to come back.

We pray that there will be a binding and breaking of fear over you now, in the name of Jesus. Come Holy Spirit.

Cornerstone, Jesus full of love and mercy. Let's stand on the truth of who Jesus is as we worship together this morning.

Give us a vision for the 'As Far As' that you have for us.

Congratulations! to Lily and James. Baby boy has arrived, looking forward to meeting him very soon.

What he is saying is the hallway is a hard place. It's the in between place, the interconnecting place, you have left one room and you are on the way to another but you have yet to arrive!

The powerful name of Jesus, the waves and wind STILL know His name.

As a church, we are in a 'As Far As' moment. We are longing and willing to step out on a journey.

God had presented to them their 'as far as' they just had to step into it.

Through it all, through it all. My eyes are on You. It is well with me.

Standing on the brink of what is the biggest step that we have taken for many years. Joshua 1

Tomorrow (Monday) we are not gathering to pray, we are praying on Tuesday at 7am instead on zoom.

The question that God asks again and again is How far? To which I/we want to answer 'As Far As'.

What could hold us back from stepping into our 'As Far As'?

Let's worship together, we are in the hallway, waiting here for you.

Until God opens the door, praise him in the hallway. Nicky Gumbel

Praying for persecuted church tomorrow at 7pm on zoom.

We prayed this morning that there would be dancing in God's glory and holiness.

the call was to put their trust in Him, their Holy, loving, heavenly Father.

Blessing to you all, have a great week. Looking forward to seeing you on zoom coffee!

Let's declare God's goodness this morning. Declare on the feed. Let's thank God for his goodness, we all have a story of the goodness of God.

Pat is praying for India, praying for the families. Our hearts are breaking for them and your heart must be breaking to. We bring India before you and ask you for your help. Amen

We pray for breakthrough, if you feel 'stuck' in your mind or in your heart.

Mornings opposite the football ground at 8.30am to pray

When the night is holding onto us, God is holding on. Testify to this today. He will never let you go. Lift your praise, he will never let you go.

God now wanted to lead them into their true purpose and identity.

Tomorrow is a big day! we will be submitting the bid for Aldi, as a church family lets continue to pray.

Let's give the Lord a clap as an expression of our hearts.

Holy Spirit come and minister to minds and hearts, with the once for all POWER of the Cross.

One of the key themes of this letter is to point firmly to the coming Christ

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. John 1 v 9

If you don't have facebook, put it on CLC keeping connected. (What's app)

Let's remind ourselves again that God is a holy God.

They will receive blessing from the Lord v 5

Praying tomorrow morning 7-7.30am

we are in fact, in Christ, 'shadows of our future selves'
