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

CAN WE PRAY FOR YOU?

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.

CLICK HERE to send us your prayer requests.

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.

Praying in small groups

Monday-Saturday each day at 8.30am overlooking the city on the grassy area opposite the football club
Monday at 9.00pm on the church veranda
Wednesday at 11.00am in the Victoria Gardens shelter
Thursday at 7.00am via Zoom

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)

Advent & Christmas
Waiting for Jesus

Advent is a time of hope and waiting for Jesus.
God’s people waited thousands of years for his promised Messiah to come. We have the privilege of living in the time after Christmas, Easter and Pentecost – Jesus has already come and sent his Holy Spirit to remain with us.

As we read the prophecies about Jesus coming and the familiar stories about the first Christmas, let’s use this time to wait and hope in Jesus once more, as we also look forward to the day when he will return.
The bible readings around Advent and Christmas can be so familiar that we can find it hard to get beyond the familiar words and connect with the story and the God of the story. This year as you take time to look at these passages, you might like to try using these suggestions to help you connect with them in a fresh way:

First get yourself comfortable, try and pray in the same place each day, be still and silent and become aware of God being with you (in fact he was here before you even arrived!)

Invite the Holy Spirit to lead you as you read the passage. Then trust him to do this as you read.

Read through the passage slowly and attentively. You might be drawn to a particular word or phrase. Take time to savour and mull over it. Go back and read it again.
In the gospel passages you might want to imagine yourself in the story – maybe as one of the characters or an onlooker. Think about how it would physically and emotionally feel to be in that place at that time. Maybe you want to speak to one of the characters.

Don’t rush on – spend time with that word or phrase or sense of being in the story.

Talk to God about what is stirring in you. Remember reading the bible is not just about learning about God, it’s about having a relationship with Him.

And finally, don’t worry if nothing seems to happen – God is still here and is enjoying being with you.

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.
