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.
The Methodist Church, along with the whole Christian community, believes each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from God’s creation in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things, this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

We are committed to being –
“a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate. We will continue to challenge the church wherever it discriminates against people on the grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.” (Inclusive Church Mission Statement)
