The Diocese of Truro have produced a range of simple guides to help with a range of Christian topics and issues. We have reproduced them here so that you can download them if you wish.

The guides are in Adobe PDF format. You can view this with Adobe Reader, which is available free from the Abode site
The Diocesan of Truro's development plan for 2016 to 2018 focuses on four areas. The first states that "We shall pray".

This guide is part of the diocese's "Way of Life". In 2017 we shall be "Journeying Up", which is about our love of God and our response to his overwhelming love for us. And prayer is the backbone of our church.

Bible reading is another of the building blocks in constructing a Christian life, and the Bible represents the core text through which Christian's encounter God's wisdom and guidance.

Bible reading and study, alone or in groups, leads to growth and maturity in a Christian’s life. It has to be said, however, that the Bible is the most popular, unread book in the world! This guide shares some ideas to help bring this great book alive.
The Anglican Communion has established five "Marks of Mission", the last of which is "To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth".

As Christian's we have a responsibility to look after our planet. We are called to respond to human need by loving service. The most profound impacts of climate change are already being felt by millions of the world's poorest peoples.

We seek to transform unjust structures of society, yet there is no greater injustice in this century than that the excessive consumption of the rich leads to the displacement and suffering of the poor.

This guide explores which environmental issues really do matter, and really are core to Christian faith, and it sets out simple steps that each of us can take to cut our carbon footprint.
We have an abundantly generous God. Jesus' death on the cross was the ultimate demonstration of that generosity. This guide looks at that generosity and how we as Christians should respond to it.

As the guide explains, "The Bible suggests that generous giving should be:
  • A priority - rather than about 'spare change'
  • Prayerful - an act of worship and thanksgiving
  • Planned - but not prescriptive
  • Proportionate - realistic to our income
  • Communal - for the needs of others, and with others for a common purpose
  • Sacrificial - reflected on our lifestyles
  • Cheerful - given as an offering to God
But giving is not just about money. God give each and every one of us skills and abilities, and giving is also about using our time and our talents to the glory of God.
Not everyone is called to be an evangelist, but all Christians can share their faith by telling their individual stories. Yet so many feel anxious or uncomfortable just thinking about talking to others about their faith. This simple guide aims to relieve the stress and to help us see that sharing our faith story can be a natural part of our everyday lives and

SpeakOut2016 was launched by Bishop Tim at the start of the year, with the aim of encouraging a least 2016 faith stories to be told over the coming 12 months. Liskeard participated in the project, and many of the faith stories for those from or connected to Liskeard are now recorded on this website: http://liskeard.2day.uk/section/FaithStories
