Please note that all activities in our church building have now been suspended and office cover is likely to be a little patchy for the foreseeable future.
We will closely follow the guidance and resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
Welcome to Truro Baptist Church.
If you are new to TBC, 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.
We intend to live stream some worship, teaching and prayer via Facebook live from 10:10am every Sunday morning. This approach will allow you to interact at appropriate times, such as when we pray.

Daily prayer 8am and 8pm
A number of people have already committed to praying at 8am and 8pm each day. We are using the Facebook members group and the Simply Lent WhatsApp group to communicate what we are praying for and what we feel God is saying in these days.
CLICK HERE for the Church Members Facebook Page.
Please note that this is a closed group for Church Members and is not open to the general public.
Please contact the Church office if you would like to join the WhatsApp group.
National guidance on corona virus
If you are not already overloaded with information and just want some helpful links to some of the common questions, here are the best sites to go to:
Try and not get mislead by social media rumours, always check them out on reputable sites like these and if you are finding it difficult with all this information, give yourself time away from your phone or computer to relax, enjoy nature, read a book or drink a cup of tea.
Supporting those without access to computers or the internet.
We are aware that there are a small number within our congregation who won’t be receiving emails and who cannot join us to worship remotely on Sunday. Every one of them has been linked up with a pastoral care group and I want to thank all those of you who are already looking out for these vulnerable people.
We thought it would be good, alongside these pastoral care groups, to set up some letter writing to these people, so if you would like to write to someone else in the church who is feeling isolated, please let us know and we will link you up.
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)
Helping our neighbours
A local lady Becky Wass has designed a simple card that you can print off and drop around to your neighbours if you feel you can help them.

IMPORTANT: The information on Corona Virus is changing rapidly, please make sure to keep up to date and take every precaution suggested.
We believe that prayer should figure as “a first resource not a last resort”.
We come together to pray: Weekly / Monthly / Annually Prayer is woven into the life of the church in a range of ways:

Simply journeying through Lent
Wed 26th Feb – Sat 17th April
The title for our teaching on Sundays for the rest of the year is ‘Simply Jesus’.
The plan is to ‘simply’ invite whoever is preaching or sharing to reflect with us on different aspects of Jesus’s life and ministry as we seek to get to know Christ, and as we seek for him to increasingly shape our lives and faith.
What better way to kick this off than to read through the gospel of Matthew together during Lent (and the run up to Easter). We have put together a reading plan using headings taken from Tom Wright’s book ‘Lent for Everyone – Matthew’.
So, as we read together, inviting the Holy Spirit to illuminate and reveal Jesus to us, let’s pray that we are transformed into his likeness and touched by his power.
A Bucketful of Songs
Barney Trevivian has been faithfully leading worship for well over thirty five years and has blessed us all with his guitar, vocals and enthusiasm.
On Saturday 22nd February Barney, joined by a host of musicians and singers, performed fourteen worship and gospel songs he’s written over the last forty-two years.
It was, as expected, a great evening of fun, music and worship.

The TBC Toddler & Baby team
“My house will be called a house of prayer for all people”
At the beginning of this new year and a new decade, and what feels like a new season in the life of our church, we want to set the whole of January aside to pray and fast. We will be building on the weekends of prayer we have had during 2019 and using this time to launch into the days ahead.
How you respond to the different elements of the month is entirely up to you. I do believe that the impact of it for you / us / our community is dependent upon what we are willing to put into it. My advice would be to allow your usual patterns and routines to be disturbed during the month – it will be worth it – you will see a change in your prayer life after the month has finished.
