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


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.


We are going to deliver this postcard of God’s hope, joy and peace to every household in Truro over the next week or so. If you are able to help us deliver some of the 8,000 we have printed in your area, could you please contact Ginney in the church office.

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)

Prayer of the Apostles

These ‘apostolic prayers’ will, as we meditate upon them, help us as we continue to think about our personal response to Christ and what it means to be both a gathered and a scattered community.

We will also see the ‘ARISE’ foundational principles

– Ambition for the Kingdom –
– Restored Identity –
– Inside out living –
– Servants of all –
– Empowered by the Spirit –

We are seeking to introduce as a church and live by day by day embodied within each of the prayers.

Word on a Wednesday:
‘The Grace’

Wednesday 16th September 2020

This Wednesday Nicky unpacks ‘The Grace’.
