Reflections on Thirst 2017

We love coming together as a family to celebrate Jesus. Every year at the end of June we go away for an entire weekend to eat, sing, learn and pray together – it’s always a fun and memorable time. This year over 100 of us gathered at gorgeous Camp Sunrise on the Sunshine Coast. So What…

Why Prioritize Prayer?

Charles Spurgeon, the so-called Prince of Preachers, once said: “Prayer moves the arm that moves the world”. That’s just one reason to prioritize prayer. When our hearts are convinced that God is the only genuine hope for transformation in our world and in the lives around us then prayer becomes the ultimate no-brainer! And so…

Leaving my Comfort Zone

Vancouver is a great city. Beautiful, vibrant, diverse, with so much to offer. But good as it is, not everyone thrives here. Vancouver also faces the challenge of poverty and disadvantage, with a large population of homeless people living on the streets. The Visible Homeless It’s many years since I lived in a big city, and when I did I was naive, eyes closed…

Have you met Jesus?

How do we get to know people? Unless you are an expert Facebook stalker (or you work for the NSA), you typically get to know someone based on what they tell you about themselves. We use stories to both get to know other people as well as letting other people get to know us. This…

Report from Turkey

As we prepare for our Gift Day in November, some of our giving will go to help some of the churches who are engaging with the refugee crisis in Turkey. We asked a friend to give us some background to the situation and pointers for prayer: What’s going on in Turkey? With Thanksgiving being celebrated…

Report from Christ Central Toronto

We asked Jeremy Little, of Christ Central Toronto, if he would write a guest post for us, updating us on the church plant into Toronto. Here’s what he has to say: Homes rented, boxes unpacked, kids settled into school and families and individuals gathering as Christ Central Toronto! It’s been an exciting summer as we’ve…

LifeGroups – on mission together

The first three weeks of this LifeGroup term are over, and hopefully you’ve found a group to connect with and begin building strong relationships. We encourage you to meet regularly with your group – you’ll benefit and they will be blessed too! Another reason we love LifeGroups is the joy we find in being on…

LifeGroups – perfect blend of Word and Spirit

Trinity Central LifeGroups meet weekly, and in those meetings we are Bible-focussed and Spirit filled. Why? Well, because at Trinity Central, we love the Bible! We believe that God is sovereign over all things, and the the Bible is His authoritative ‘Word’ in all matters of life. In LifeGroups we spend time in the Word,…

LifeGroups – building communities

As the fall term of LifeGroups continues, it’s great to hear of new people trying out groups. Sunday mornings are great, and worshipping together as a whole church family is a highlight of the week. But building relationships takes more than small talk over coffee after the service! That’s why we’re so passionate about building…

Devoted 2015

Rhys Scott shares his highlights of his recent trip to the UK and the Christ Central Devoted event. It was a joy to be at Devoted as part of my trip to the UK in August. Devoted is the new annual UK conference for the churches in the Christ Central part of the Newfrontiers family…

LifeGroups – Food, glorious food!

Our new LifeGroup term is kicking off this week – and we couldn’t be more excited!  At Trinity Central we love LifeGroups. They are a central part of our vision to see lives built into deep relationships with Jesus and each other. We believe that building friendships is a good thing – and we love…

Why are you coming to Thirst? Part 1

Thirst 2015 is getting closer, and we at Trinity Central think it’s the place you need to be this summer. But don’t just take our word for it! We have people booked in for Thirst from Vancouver, Fredericton NB, the United Kingdom and even from Jakarta, Indonesia! So we asked a few people the important…

The Challenge of Kingdom Living

When the apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Corinth, he had to confront them on certain behaviour issues in the church. It turns out that one man in the church had begun a sexual relationship with his step-mother – and the church, instead of confronting this man on his sin, were seeing the relationship…
