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...

Tue, 03/11/2014 - 01:53

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...

Men, camouflage, power tools… and the Holy Spirit

Fri, 02/07/2014 - 20:37

By James Vander Woude I’m a “men’s weekend” junkie. There’s something about going away together as men that I have found hugely helpful in my (long, sometimes painful) maturing process as a Christian man, my Father’s son.  So when Rhys mentioned that he would be speaking at a men’s conference in Oregon this past weekend,...

An Anniversary Perspective

Tue, 02/04/2014 - 19:06

On Sunday 2nd February we marked our two year anniversary as a church with a wonderful celebration together!

Always be ready to give an answer…

Wed, 01/29/2014 - 15:47

When I logged on to Facebook today I found this post from a staunchly atheist friend of mine: “I had a really good/interesting talk with some theists (christians) today. Anyone who says ‘religious people are stupid’ needs to talk with some theists, like this guy I was talking with most of the time. He helped...

Prayer is at the very heart of our relationship with God. As we gather together as a church family to pray together we come with expectation that God will both speak to us, and that He will act on our behalf. On Sunday 17 Nov at 7pm we’ll be meeting to pray at the Roundhouse...

We’d love to invite you to join us as we celebrate Jesus’ birth together on Sunday 15 December with our carol service.

Sundays are changing!

Tue, 09/10/2013 - 14:20

We love Sundays! The absolute best time of the week is when we gather together as a church family! Worshipping together, hearing God speak to us, the familiarity of friends, the opportunity to pray for and minister to one another. It really is the best day of the week!

Spiritual Warfare – how do we understand it? – Sat 26 Oct

Wed, 08/14/2013 - 21:01

Over the past 20 years the topic of spiritual warfare has been the source of much controversy. Often this means that we avoid such subjects because of errors we heard taught, or simply a desire to avoid controversy. Yet, the apostle Paul is very clear that we have an enemy, and that we should not...
