Truro Methodist church is an active, lively and developing Christian Church at the heart of the beautiful city of Truro, Cornwall in the United Kingdom. We are committed to deepening our relationship with God and sharing his love with others.

We have a full programme of activities for people of every age and an extensive outreach programme working with the community around us.
Feel free to browse the site - and we would love to hear from you too.
Truro with Tresillian
We hope that everyone feels part of the Team here at Truro Tresillian Methodist Church. Many people give up hours of their own time because they believe in what we are trying to build here. In addition to our many volunteers we have one full-time minister and two part-time lead pastors and twp part-time pastoral assistants who are responsible for aspects of the ministry here.
On Sunday the doors open at 8.45am when you are invited to help yourself to a simple breakfast before joining in the band-led worship which starts at a very precise (and deliberate) 9: 22am! Our worship is sensitive to the Holy Spirit and seeks to create times of celebration and reflection within the encounter. 9: 22 provides the opportunity for all-ages to worship together (but is NOT all-age worship), with everyone sharing together in the whole experience, separating only for the themed teaching each week. There is room for prayer ministry and - if God speaks to you - we would love to be blessed by that word too.
This service finishes at around 10.30am
Our traditional service begins at 11.00am start. You could arrive at 10.30am and share a coffee and fellowship with those who have attended the early service or you could choose to go straight into the Sanctuary where the sense of worship will continue between the two services.
Our 11.00am worship is accompanied by the organ and is supported by our excellent Choir. This will be the main 'preaching service'of the day and will often expand upon the theme introduced at 9: 22. Although the main focus of children's ministry is the early service, there will be provision for young people during the 11.00am worship service for those parents who prefer the more traditional style of worship. 'Tiny Steps' for pre-school children will be run at both services.
This service will conclude around 12.15pm
Village Worship 11am
We would very much like to encourage you to make the short trip outside of Truro to share with the folk at Tresillian. This is a beautiful, comfortable and warm chapel that has has a considerable 'face-lift' in recent years and the fellowship here is warm and welcoming. Worship takes place at 11.00am most Sundays (not the 5th Sunday of the month) and is usually traditional in style. The 1st Sunday each month is Cafe Church - and informal act of worship for everyone with refreshments provided. There is a Sunday club for children each week (except during Cafe Church)
Sunday Evening Worship 6.15pm
Evening Praise offers a quieter opportunity to share in largely traditional-style worship. Often hymn-
based, with worship supported by the Choir who will bring an Introit and Anthem. A preacher (Lay or Ordained) will preach a sermon and lead the congregation in prayer.
Holy Communion is an important part of the worship and discipleship life here at Truro Tresillian.
We celebrate communion together at Truro bright and early on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month (8.15am start) with a service lasting around 30 minutes (followed by breakfast). Our 11.00am service will include Holy Communion on the 1st Sunday of each month, and our 6.15pm service, on the 3rd Sunday. There are also services of Holy communion at 9: 22 and at Tresillian as announced.
