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..
At Truro Methodist Church, we believe that the Bible is more than just words on a page – God speaks to us through Scripture as the Holy Spirit takes the written word and makes it the Living Word of God for us. In addition, we aim to run a number of Bible study courses across the course of each year. Taking either a theme or a book of the Bible, our study series last anything from three to eight sessions, with each session lasting about 70 minutes. We usually repeat the day-time studies in the evening so that as many people as possible can share in them.
Truro Methodist Church is located right in the city centre and so has unique opportunities for Ministry to the commercial, business and retail sectors of the city. Although Truro is a small city, it still experiences the challenges and opportunities associated with city life and living; challenges and opportunities which mean we are able to share in outreach ministry right from our own premises. This includes hosting Truro Foodbank and Truro Street Pastors each week, and also running our own community café – Sambells – from the front of the Church. Each morning (Monday to Saturday), all kinds of people come to Sambells because they have discovered it to be warm, comfortable and relaxing, offering a friendly welcome to all and serving good food and drink which is fairly-traded, locally-sourced and ethically-produced, wherever possible. Truro Methodist Church is part of the Methodist Connexional City-Centre Network.
One of the most exciting aspects of life at Truro Methodist Church is the way in which we are seeing prayer being rediscovered within the fellowship: we firmly believe that prayer is a vital part of growing closer to God. Just off the Sanctuary is our Prayer Chapel, which is available during the day for private prayer and, after services, members of the Prayer Team are available to pray with you, if you wish. Regular prayer meetings are held on Tuesday mornings in the Sanctuary from 9.30am-10.00am, and an invite is extended to anyone who would wish to attend.
