Giving the tenth

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 02:23

‘Money makes the world go round’ – or at least, that’s how the saying goes! Certainly money – how much of it I have, whether it’s ‘enough’ and where I spend it – not only affects many of our daily decisions and choices but can be a source of identity for us, or an idol...

Revelation – with David Campbell

Thu, 06/05/2014 - 02:51

Have you ever been intrigued by the book of Revelation or had questions about End Times? The final book of the Bible, full of rich visions and symbolic language, Revelation has often been a source of both fascination and confusion. David Campbell, who will be visiting us from Trinity Christian Church, Owen Sound, at the...

Consider Yourself Part of the Family

Wed, 06/04/2014 - 19:09

Being part of a church is like being part of a family. You don’t just go to church, like going to a club; you belong to a church, part of the family. This is great news. But we have to be honest and accept that many people have not had such a great family experience...

Believer’s Baptism – the what and the why

Wed, 05/28/2014 - 17:14

As we start Part 3 of A People Prepared we’re looking at what are the distinctive marks of a member – starting with believer’s baptism. Baptism has been inextricably linked with the life of Christians right from the first days of the Church, as described in Acts. But what is baptism, and why do we do...

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...
