How Do I Meet People?
Truro Tresillian Church is a vibrant community of God’s people where everyone is encouraged to find their place. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mum, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of the family here – and there are so many ways to do it! And we are so much more than Sunday!
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact, learn and support one another than are larger groups . For that reason, we are still developing a network of Hub Groups across the whole Church community. Some of those groups are well established and have met together for years; others are new and still others do not yet exist! There will be a group somewhere close to you…and if there isn’t….we will start one!
Truro Tresillian Church sustains.a number of groups for men and women. They offer a varied programme for a variety of ages and interests. These groups tend to meet in the evenings and are generally well supported. There are daytime craft groups, social groups, a weekly lunch club; there really is something for everyone. Just decide what you want to be part of and you will be made very welcome.
Sport is a wonderful way to draw people together in a non-aggressive (usually) way! ‘Ministry of Sport’ organises all kinds of events and activities to develop fellowship within the Church family and to draw folk closer to it. There’s much more about this, elsewhere on the site.
Many acts of worship are still led by Ministers and Local Preachers but the responsibility and delight of leading people in worship is spreading. God has used a ‘shortfall’ in those coming forward to train as preachers to grow a new ministry within our churches. Local Worship Leaders (or Worship Teams) have been trained and developed and are bringing a wonderful diversity and originality to our worship. In our Church setting, Worship Leaders are not necessarily the one who hold a guitar or tell us when to stand and sit as we sing; no. For us worship Leaders use all kinds of methods and gifts, styles and skills to bring us into an encounter with God.
Services led by Worship Teams will not normally include a ‘sermon’ in the usual sense, but will help us explore the meaning of Scripture and its relationship to our lives through all kinds of media. What began life as a ‘mechanism of coping’ here, has become a a channel through which God is releasing gifts in all kinds of people and blessing the Church.
God is doing a new thing, its seems – and slowly we are catching up with what he wants us to be doing.
