Important information

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.

Introducing TBC

Sunday Services

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 TBC Keeping Connected WhatsApp group to communicate what we are praying for and what we feel God is saying in these days.

Please contact the Church office if you would like to join the WhatsApp or Facebook  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:

CLICK HERE for the Government response to corona virus
CLICK HERE for NHS information on corona virus

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)

Emerge Day of Prayer

8am Sat 27th – 9am Sun 28th July
Hour of Power’ at 8am, 8pm and then again at 8am.

We are starting to think about how we as a church might emerge from this time very differently due to all the implications of the Coronavirus crisis.

We want this day of prayer to be all about praying specifically into how things might look as we emerge from this present time.

We feel it right to remember, take hold of and pray into, some of the prophetic words that we have received in recent years . . . as well as seek God’s revelation as we
go forward.

CLICK HERE to sign up for a specific time to pray.
(don’t worry if there are others already signed up in that slot)

A zoom room will be open for the whole time using the usual church meeting ID and password

Psalm 23 by our

Powerhouse Children & Team

During lock-down the powerhouse children & team members joined together to make this short video on Psalm 23.

Music by Klaus, Healing Waters. Pure Worship.

Draw back your curtains for the children

Draw back your curtains for the children on the 15th of each month.

The light behind a curtain is waiting to come in, as we draw back our curtains, or pull up a blind, let’s pray that Jesus is the light amongst our children during the coronavirus.

When you ‘draw back your curtains’ on the 15th each month, let’s stand united in prayer for the children.

Lets Pray

God’s promises and blessings upon children in the name that is above ALL names.
Protection over the children, that their heavenly angels are surrounding them.

Giants of Genesis

Over the coming couple of months we are going to look at four key figures (giants) in the book of Genesis: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.

As we read we will see the unfolding of God’s big story (metanarrative) for the world, through the telling of a number of smaller stories that describe the formation firstly of a family and then of a nation.

We don’t get an airbrushed version of their lives, or their families for that matter . . . we get the lot: deceit, pride,
greed, adultery . . . (the list could go on!)

We also get to see what God can do through each of these people, despite the messes, muddles and mistakes, as they hear and respond to the call of God on their lives and walk in that calling.

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.

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.

CD’s are available to purchase with the proceeds split between rescuing children off the streets of Nairobi (Tumaini Kwa Watoto) and YWAM (Youth With A Mission).

You can also find the Album “A Bucketful of Songs” on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube Music, Google Play & Amazon Music.

It was, as expected, a great evening of fun, music and worship.
