Three Years Together

Four years ago six of us were sitting around a table in a pizza restaurant in London, England, planning and praying for a church plant in Vancouver. Three years ago, some fifteen of us were gathering in our front room to pray and talk about what it means to be a church. Fast forward to…

Week of Prayer Jan 2015 – Your Kingdom Come

The first order of business in prayer is not our business, it’s God’s business! We’ve seen over the past three posts how Jesus taught us to pray by coming to God in worship. Where does He go from there? Sure, Jesus taught us to confess our sins, to ask for daily provision, and bring our…

Week of Prayer Jan 2015 – Hallowed be Your Name

Over the past two posts we’ve talked about God’s revelation of Himself as Father, and the wonder of His limitlessness as our Father in Heaven. The next phrase that Jesus taught us to pray is one that we can often skip over, as if it were simply an introductory comment. But we should pause when…

Week of Prayer Jan 2015 – Who lives in heaven

At the start of our Week of Prayer, we considered that in coming to God in prayer we come to a Father who loves us. That is how God has chosen to reveal Himself to us, and that is the nature of the relationship that He invites us into. He adopts us into His family through…

Week of Prayer Jan 2015 – Our Father

We’re excited to be starting a week of prayer together as a church – during these weeks God speaks to us as a church family and often surprises us. When Jesus taught His disciples to pray He encouraged them to start by saying: “Our Father…” All too often the enormity of this passes us by….

Gift Day 2014

I need to give to God? Why?

We’re approaching one of the most exciting days in the Trinity Central annual calendar! This coming Sunday is our Gift Day, when we come together as a church to give back to God some of the resource that He has put in our hands. I need to give to God? Why? Well, for a number of…

Church Plant Becomes a Church!

This past Sunday we reached a milestone in the Trinity Central story. This church family started in early 2012, as a church planting team came together and began to build a new community in the heart of Vancouver. That journey has been one filled with faith adventure, as people have responded to God’s call from…

Put your Confidence in the Right Place

In what do you place your confidence? The athlete might put his confidence in his muscles, in his strength, his speed or agility. The singer might put his confidence in his voice. The dancer, in her body. The teacher might put his confidence in his intellect. The business woman in her ability to negotiate the markets. The…

LifeGroups are back!

The new LifeGroup term kicked off on Monday night. We’ve had a great summer break, enjoying the weather with BBQs, beach parties and fireworks. But now it’s time to come back together for our weekly LifeGroups. We’re so looking forward to this Fall term, meeting together to share food and friendship, pressing into God in…

Who’s in Control Wk 2 – Esther

In chapter two of Esther we are introduced to the namesake of this book, Esther. Esther, also known as Hadassah, is a young Jewish girl from the tribe of Benjamin. Following Queen Vashti’s refusal of his command to humiliate herself in front of his men, King Xerxes puts on a hunt for a new wife,…
