Christmas – a time for community

Starbucks is selling Eggnog coffees, houses are lit up with Christmas lights, and mad shopping has commenced – all sure signs that it’s December and Christmas is almost here! I’m sitting in Starbucks typing this update, to the accompaniment of “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…” These last few months have been something of a…

Small beginnings but a great day!

Yesterday we had our first Trinity Central meeting in Vancouver. It was an exciting day, with twenty of us gathered in our lounge. It was so exciting to meet new friends! We worshipped and prayed, broke bread together and talked about the journey from here. Then we ate together. A great evening all in all….

The church is the prize

Church life can be a drudge! It is possible to get bored, to find ourselves in a routine of just going to stuff, going through the motions, and not really finding it’s challenging us and strengthening us. We can become familiar with what happens week to week, the teaching doesn’t seem to grip us like…

Relationship: the heart of church planting at Trinity Central

Apostles, prophets and church planting

One of the great things that we have experienced in our moving to church plant has been the support we have experienced planting in an apostolic context. When we read through the stories of Paul’s missionary journeys in Acts we find that the establishing of churches was an apostolic activity. After Paul encountered Christ on…

Vancouver Day – a great success!

We had a fantastic day on Saturday as 60 or so interested people gathered to worship God, hear about what Newfrontiers is doing in Canada, and pray for the church plant into Vancouver. It was a hugely encouraging time, with God meeting with us from the moment we started. The day really was characterised by…

Faith to go…

I’ll be preaching on “faith to go” in Bishops Stortford, UK, this Sunday, and have been struck in my preparation about the challenges before Abraham and Sarah in obeying God’s call: they left his father (his identity and family name), they left their family (those closest to them and their circle of support) and they…

The developing team

Last night we had our first Trinity Central prayer meeting. It was a fabulous evening, full of faith and passion for what God is calling us to. There was a sense of it being a prophetic evening, it was a foretaste of what is to come in Vancouver, when we gather as a church to…

So what does church planting really involve?

This is a question we are often asked, so I thought it worth taking a moment to look at what we expect to be doing on the ground once we land in Vancouver. Church planting really is about engaging with people and beginning to build a new Christ centred community. What that means in day…

It’s all in a name: Trinity Central Vancouver
