I just returned recently from a middle eastern country (sorry to make that sound so frightfully glamorous and mysterious - I can't tell you which one as it's not totally safe for the people there) after visiting church planting friends. My friends and I met on theology training as our (John and I) journey to church planting was unfolding at the same time as theirs. They have two young sons, as do we. We loved and invested in each other as we began plans to

It had become fairly apparent that God was leading Jubilee to start a new church in the East of Hull, the question now was who was going to lead it? Who did God want to work through to bring it to life? Who would we send out as part of the team in order to see God's desires for East Hull come about? Jubilee called another prayer meeting and began to ask people to consider if they felt it should be them that God

I've been meaning, for a while, to try to record our journey of planting River City Church. There are a number of reasons for this 1) so that we don't forget what an incredible journey we're on; 2) to remind ourselves it is Jesus' idea and not our own; 3) to list some of the ways that God speaks to and guides His people, and lastly 4) to encourage others to be bold in asking God what plans He has for you. Hope you enjoy reading!   Around two years

Romans 13:7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. Ahead of our final Sunday at our current church we are going through the period of reflecting on the last ten years and how significant they have been. Personally, I wanted to celebrate the friends that have invested in my life over ten years. I wrote to a number of them to express

If there’s one message God’s been teaching the River City Church so far, it’s that he cannot be boxed in or limited. The part we play is to simply show up, step out and see what God will do.  Ever since Jubilee announced its church plant would be in the East of Hull, we (my husband, Luke, and I, Nicky) both felt we would be part of it. Although East Hull gets a lot of ‘bad press’, Luke and I had, for a number of

"I do not need safety as much as I need Jesus." This is fast becoming my 'mantra'. I find myself repeating this lyric from a Rend Collective song rather more often than I would like. For a long time I have lived a rather comfortable middle class existence. I have taken my safety and the safety of my family for granted. However, having moved to a more challenging neighbourhood I am having to remind myself that safety isn't as important as being obedient to Jesus. The first day

God spoke to us about moving to start a new church in August last year. Since then it has been a painful but exciting journey of transition. We are now living in East Hull and will soon transfer our children to new schools. In only a few months we will begin to meet together on a Sunday morning as River City Church. I wanted to share a number of incredible things that have happened over the last few months, mostly to record them so we

When you were in your twenties what did you hope your life would amount to? A flash apartment in the capital? Posh car? Award winning career? I did. But then, at the age of 20, I became a Christian and a lot of that changed. I still wanted all those things but something new began to grow in me, a nagging feeling that there was something greater to invest my life in than just career; money; stuff. Beginning to believe there was a God and an
