We meet for our main worship services at 10.30 am & 2.00 pm on Sundays at Tregolls School.
We aim to worship our great God with both reverence and joy, and our services include a mix of the best worship songs, old and new.
Our services are easy to follow and full of the Bible and full of Christ, and we are keen to listen to preaching that clearly unpacks the Bible and carefully applies it to our everyday lives. Our afternoon service also provides opportunity, after a shorter sermon, for group discussion.
In the morning, for children of primary school age, there is a Sunday school available after the service with Bible stories and fun activities. Space is also available for parents with infants, where they can listen to the service being relayed.
Every Sunday we enjoy lunch together between the services, as a family united in Christ. We bring our own lunch, but there's always plenty spare for visitors!
On the first Sunday of the month our 2 pm service takes a more informal style, with opportunities for others to share of their own dealings with God, and to ask questions (grill the pastor!).
We meet alternately for prayer and Bible study at 7.30 - 9.00 pm on Tuesdays in a local home (contact for details).
Our Bible studies are thought-provoking interactive discussions, where we aim to apply Sunday's message to us more deeply.
other regular activities
Truro Evangelical Church exists to glorify God by worshipping and serving him, loving one another and making him known.
We have a variety of activities in our church life. We aim to care for those who join us, with different opportunities for meeting up through the month. We are also eager to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to those who have not yet discovered his life-transforming power for themselves; check out our courses if you would like to discover more.
Every week (weather-dependent) a team of us head out into the city-centre with our flag and literature stall, in the middle of the piazza at Lemon Quay. We have a variety of free leaflets about the Christian faith, and give out our own specially designed leaflets to as many people as will receive them. Our aim is specifically to tell people the good news of Jesus, and to encourage them to turn to him for forgiveness and everlasting life.
Every Wednesday, 10.30 am – 3.30 pm
Once a month, on Thursday mornings, we have an informal get-together at a local café, for all who are available. A chance just to relax in comfy chairs, enjoy a coffee and natter!
Every 1st Thursday, 11 am – 12 pm
Spires Coffee Bar, Haven House (city centre)
Men's & Ladies' breakfasts
Once a month the men of the church meet together for a hearty breakfast (no calories spared!) followed by a Bible-based study and prayer, in a local home. At the same time the ladies meet in a different location for the same purpose, but watching their figures!
First Saturday of the month 8.30 – 10.00 am
Once a month we have an informal lunch in a local home, as a relaxed get-together, and an opportunity for friends and acquaintances to come and meet some of the church folk. We conclude with a brief, thought-provoking talk on some topical affair.
Every last Friday, 12.30 – 2.30 pm
Ladies' prayer meeting
Once a month the ladies of the church meet together for coffee and prayer, in the comfort of a local home.
Every 3rd Thursday, 10.30 am – 12.00 pm
Occasionally, a few of us give out our specially designed leaflets to individual homes throughout the city, and try to speak with any who are interested, to bring the good news of Jesus.
Tregolls Bible Club
We want to bless the community in which we live. As we benefit from the school's premises, we are keen to contribute to the spiritual welfare of the children who attend there. Once a week in term time we run an after-school club for children of Tregolls School, with Bible stories, songs and games.
Wednesdays, 3.15 - 4 pm (according to demand)
Church planting in St Austell
Several people used to come to us from the St Austell area, where there has been much need for churches who will faithfully teach the Bible and get the good news of Jesus out into Cornwall's second-largest population centre. Now, in God's kindness, an FIEC church has begun: Grace Church St Austell, meeting in Pondhu School.
Sundays, 11 am & 2 pm
Tuesdays, 7.30 pm in a local home
