River City are in the middle of a week of prayer, we are dedicating more time to seeking God and asking Him to change our city and bring close those far from Him. I read this brilliant quote from a book called "Rain from Heaven" by Arthur Wallis and wanted to share it hear to keep encouraging us as we seek after God: "The modern evangelist is faced with two major problems. The first is how to draw people from their homes, their firesides, their

The season we currently find ourselves in is an odd one. It's neither here nor there. We had left our former church to start a new one, except we had then deliberately chosen not to launch publicly until early 2017, instead taking our team through a 'soft launch’ period. This was with the aim of giving ourselves space and time to work out what River City would look like to those who will come to visit, and hopefully join us in the future. At

As a church Jubilee felt they had heard God say EAST EAST EAST (Part 1), meaning we should start a church in the East of Hull. Then John and I had felt God speak to us as a couple and say EAST EAST EAST (PART 2) to us, confirm we were to lead the church plant and take a team with us from Jubilee to do it. We now knew beyond all doubt that God had a plan for us and that it was separate

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

Below is a link of John and I speaking together back in January on how and why God had spoken to us about starting River City Church. Give it a listen if you; 1) are curious about how God speaks to people, 2) want to understand what Christians think about Jesus and church 3) want to know what the new church might be like and what we value, 4) are part of the team coming with us and need a reminder of what an

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
