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.

Reboot – take action on the climate crisis

Join us in prayer and action to tackle injustice and see a breakthrough in the climate crisis.
Together, we’re calling for a coronavirus recovery that tackles poverty and helps end the climate crisis. We want to see the world rebooted for a greener, fairer future.

The church has a vital role in making this happen. Through prayer and speaking out for change, we can love our neighbours across the world and build a fairer world that works for everyone.

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.

Wishing you all a blessed week.

A word for someone whose mind runs away into the future - who thinks of all the things that could go wrong. You know that this is not healthy and helpful. God is saying give it to him because he has got your future in his hands. Do not worry about tomorrow, instead just give it to God.

Sorrow and sighing will flee away.

The Lord wants to strengthen people today - for those who feel you haven't got what it takes. He will strengthen those knees and hands. He will speak to your hearts 'Be Strong'.

Invite the Holy Spirit to minister to you now for this area that you are drawn to.

Which one do you feel drawn to at this time?

Psalm 36

6) Holiness

We need to learn to live in the flow of his Spirit within us

5) Hydration

We have to not let the 'not yet' be an excuse for us to not pray.

Think about the difference that he makes when Jesus walks into the room

4) Wholeness

It is powerful to speak to ourselves, to make declarations

3) Help

Sometimes we need to exercise the gift of faith to unlock hope

2) Hope

Everlasting joy will crown your heads - the Lord wants to crown us with joy. Joy will overtake us.

Joy is the serious business of heaven (C S Lewis)

1) Happiness (Joy)

What happens when God draws near...

Keep this image in your minds - the rain falling in the desert and the desert coming to life.

Chapter is about hope for the people in that moment but also the hope of Jesus

Second half of book of Isaiah is about redemption and rescue.

Early chapters of Isaiah are about people turning away from God and its quite heavy. Chapter 35 is a breath of fresh air.

Morning All!
No Live stream this morning as we have a drop in communion in the church building. We are doing things a bit differently this time - there will be a short reflection and time of worship repeated at 10, 10.30 and 11.30 so you may want to aim to be here for one of those times. See you there if you can make.
