Prayer – the power for change

Wed, 05/07/2014 - 13:03

“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.”   John Wesley It is easy for us, in the midst of our busy lives, to think that the things we do are the things that bring change. Whether in our circumstances, or in the lives of others, we are quick to think that our activity is...

Time for Fasting

Wed, 05/07/2014 - 11:37

During our Week of Prayer, we often talk not just of praying, but of ‘prayer and fasting’. So, just what is fasting and why do we do it? Fasting is a temporary season of denying some appetites for the purpose of activating others. 1. Fasting is a faith thing. By faith we deny ourselves, and place...

Time for prayer

Tue, 05/06/2014 - 12:01

Well, what a couple of weeks it has been! Some painful lows and some wonderful highs! All topped off yesterday with the joy of welcoming a number of people into God’s wonderful family…  It sometimes amazes me how God seems to own our calendars. I can’t think of a more appropriate time to gather the...

The Appointing of Elders

Mon, 05/05/2014 - 19:09

Over the past weeks we’ve taken some time to engage with a Biblical view of eldership in the church, and how we are seeking to move towards having an eldership team in place at Trinity Central. In this post I’d like to spell out a little more the details of what this process looks like:...

Week of Prayer in May

Thu, 04/24/2014 - 14:37

Prayer is one of the most important activities in the life of a church. We recognise that it is God who will change our friends and our city – it won’t be us! That’s why we pray in LifeGroups, offer prayer at the end of the meeting on Sundays, and gather as a church once a...

What is an ‘Elder’?

Wed, 04/23/2014 - 00:25

Rhys Scott takes a look at Elders and church leadership in the Bible. As we work towards having an eldership team in place at Trinity Central, we want to put foundations in place as to how we understand Biblical church leadership, so that we have Godly expectations of the leaders who serve us, and an...

On the move… again

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 12:15

So Trinity Central is on the move once again! It reminds me of a time when God spoke to the people of Israel: “You have stayed long enough on this mountain…” They had been encamped at Mount Horeb for a significant period of time, but now God was on the move again. It was time...

Biblical Leadership

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 20:17

As we at Trinity Central look to put a leadership structure in place in order to care for a growing church body, we want to ensure that we follow God’s model for leading His people, and not the world’s. The nature of the leadership of any body of people determines how that body develops and...

How is the church led?

Fri, 03/21/2014 - 12:20

Over these past weeks, as we’ve worked our way through the letter of 1 Peter, we’ve spent some time looking at the concept of the “priesthood of all believers”. We’ve seen how God gave and anointed prophets, priests and kings to serve and lead His Old Testament people, Israel. We’ve seen how these three roles...

The Priesthood of all believers

Wed, 03/19/2014 - 16:06

Have you ever have caught yourself thinking “The church really should be doing X..” John Wimber once encountered such a situation. He recounts a time when he was approached by a member of his congregation who had met somebody in great need. After the service this man told Wimber of his frustration. “This man needed...

A new command I give you…

Tue, 03/11/2014 - 14:27

Do you remember those little desk toys with the hanging balls – Newton’s Cradles. There was something about them that made them utterly irresistible – you just had to pick up a ball from one end and let it go, and watch as the perpetual motion kept the end balls tick-tock-ticking back and forth, never...

Trinity Central church is moving to the Vancity Theatre We’ve a church on the move! Just over a year ago we moved from the Roundhouse in Yaletown to the Wosk Centre. During that time our regular attendance has grown to around 120, so we’re in need of a new venue for our Sunday church meetings...

Where do you go to church?

Fri, 03/07/2014 - 12:41

“Where do you go to church?”   It’s a question which many of us have asked or answered at some time or other. The premise behind the question is that church is something – a service, a building, a meeting – that you attend. You show up, as if to a performance, sit through the...

Identity

Wed, 02/19/2014 - 12:51

I was chatting this week with someone who is looking for work, and finding the constant rejections frustrating. “I send off my resume, but I don’t have the specific qualifications or experience they’re looking for, so they dismiss me. I know I’m perfectly able to do their jobs, if they’d just meet me.” She was...

Peter’s Letter

Fri, 02/14/2014 - 15:08

This past Sunday we made a start on our series in the letter of 1 Peter, and I’m really looking forward to working our way through this letter together. Peter writes to believers in churches spread around what would now be Northern Turkey, quite possibly churches planted by people who he had relationship with and...

Receiving the Spirit

Sat, 02/08/2014 - 13:52

This past Sunday I spoke about the importance of us being a Spirit empowered people and gave opportunity for people to receive the Spirit. Had we have had more time I would have given more attention to demonstrating from scripture all the New Testament occurrences of receiving the Spirit. I thought it might be useful...
