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

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

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

We had such an incredible final service at Jubilee on Sunday, I just wanted to share some of the amazing images our friend David took on his camera. They truly capture what wonderful family Jubilee is. Thank you for loving us and sending us out so well.

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

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

In Genesis 26 Isaac is on the search for water. Not just any old water, but 'living water'. By this the Bible means not just a well that has water at the bottom of it, but a well filled with a source of water that 'bubbles up, that flows', where the well does not need to be laboured over but as they begin to dig the water flows out freely. His servants move from place to place, digging wells here, there and everywhere until
