I was thinking….

What sort of church are you?

We are a vibrant, loving, and active church.  We are a part of the Free Methodist movement  which means we follow in the central traditions of the Christian church, valuing the authority and truth of what the Bible teaches, the presence of God’s Spirit, and a firm belief that Christian life is ultimatly about enjoying a relationship with God made possible because of what Jesus accomplished by his death on the cross and resurrection. Our Mission statement being “Growing as a loving Christian family, transforming lives through the message and love of Jesus”

 

Why are there so many churches in Truro?

Forthe last 800 years there has been a church in Truro, with St Mary’s being established in the 1200s A.D. Since then many different groups of Christians have been established reflecting the changing and growing traditions within the church, each ‘stream’ emphasising different aspects of Christian teaching and experience. Now there are over 15 different congregations in Truro, each with distinct ‘flavour’, areas of ministry and in different neighbourhoods. We activly partner together for the good of the city.

 

What happens if I bring my children to church?

Most Sundays we will start our time together in all-age worship, the children  then will be prayed for, and go to various groups according to their age. Our Children’s Church Team are available to help you and your children settle in to their group and make the most out of their time with us. Team members are DBS checked as part of our Child Protection Policy.

 

I have Christian beliefs; why should I bother with church?

In the book of Hebrews we are encouraged to not neglect meeting together, but rather to gather to encourage and challenge one another to explore and live outour faith in community. Christianity is not a religion of the individual, but rather a faith that thrives in community with other believers. If you have a belief in Christ and want to enjoy the fullness of what it means to be a Christian, we believe you will discover this most when you share your ‘journey’ of life with others.  John Wesley, the founder of Methodism has said that there is no such thing as individual Christianity!  The word ‘Christian’ mean little Christ, that means to be like Christ, or, liking the things that Christ liked. The church is not a man’s idea! It is Christ’s! He said “I will build my church” – so if we are Christians, we will want to be involved in what Christ is involved in, the church!
