"An Invitation You Wouldn't Want To Turn Down" Canon J. John Preaching at Truro Church, Sunday, April 15th, 8:30am and 11:15am Services J. John lives in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. He has been described as refreshing, humorous, passionate, earthy, accessible and dynamic. A creative Christian speaker with an appeal that transcends gender, age, race, culture and occupation, Canon John has a much-loved art of storytelling helps people to discover spiritual meaning in a way that makes sense of everyday life. J. John believes that contemporary society is showing many alarming signs of having turned its back on God or being unaware of his existence. He argues that the loneliness and anxiety and broken relationships that trouble many people are often symptoms of this separation. J. John believes that a lot of people's understanding of Christianity is a misunderstanding. In his own inimitable style he enables his listeners to understand that Christianity is not only reasonable, but relevant and vitally important. Don't miss this opportunity to hear one of the church's most compelling and relevant voices of our day! Please join us and invite friends!

Alpha is a 10-week introduction to Christianity that gives people an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, informal and friendly environment. No question is too simple or too hostile! 16 million people have taken the course so far, in 130 countries around the world. Statistics suggest that around 50% of guests either commit or recommit their lives to Jesus.

Here’s what some leading Christians say about it:

“[Alpha] works. I can testify to that. Indeed it even worked for old snobby me.” —Susan Lee, Senior Editor, Forbes Magazine

“...many claim Alpha has changed their lives and appear genuinely happier for the experience.” —Time Magazine

"I know of many people whose lives have been transformed through the Alpha Course. I rejoice at how God is using it so powerfully to renew many churches…” —Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministries "There's nothing intimidating or exclusive about it, you really can ask any question." "Alpha is so refreshing...it's awesome!" —Comments from Truro Church Alpha Course participants

The Light of Christ: The Great Vigil of Easter at Truro Church Join us in the Chapel Saturday evening April 7 for a special service of Confirmation with the Rt. Rev. John Guernsey. By The Rev. Carlos Pellot

Truro Church is at the threshold of that hallowed time and space known for ages as Holy Week. The Christian feasts relating to Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection take place during this time. If we have taken the time during these almost 40 days to approach these events as it is worthy of them, Lent then has served as our gateway to search deep inside and examine ourselves, meditate, pray, even fast, let go of and take on a few things that certainly should help us approach Calvary with our own cross and behold Jesus with his. And if we are afforded the amazing grace of coming near that moment of apparent darkness at the cross of Jesus, let us rest assured that our journey as we behold our agonizing Christ will propel us to his dying breath so that his last minute on the cross becomes the first minute of our lives. His dying breath, our living spirit. It is because of that dying breath that we watch alive inside the solemn hollow of his tomb. Apparent darkness. But here we are not fearful, but expectant. We are rather hopeful because we are not the first disciples who thought it all had ended with a cross and a tomb. And yet, we are also the first disciples because we are about to hear with them the news anew. With them, we behold a glimmer of light ever increasing. The Light of Christ! This is the Light that overpowered darkness and death back when those first disciples thought it was over and this is the Light that will continue to shine in overpowering fashion as we gather to worship and shout hallelujahs to our risen Savior this coming April 7 at 8 pm when we celebrate the Great Vigil of Easter in the Chapel of Truro Church. Let us not miss the blessing to allow Christ’s risen light to overpower us too with our own darkness and our death. Let us be participant witnesses this coming April 7. Our bishop, the Right Reverend John Guernsey, will be with us to preach the Word of our risen Christ and celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation on both young and old. The Great Vigil of Easter will be a “new” service we are adding to the Easter celebrations at Truro Church this year. Yes, our worship life together can only get better when we celebrate the biggest and oldest feast of them all, The Resurrection of Jesus Christ the Lord. Come if you like Tradition and beauty, come if you love to hear the powerful message of the risen Word of God, come if you love worship music both old and new, come if you are old, come if you are young, and experience the Light of Christ!

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. I John 1:7
