We have been taken by surprise by the Lord. For as long as we can remember, we have known that God was asking City Church to plant churches. Our suspicion was that the timing was imminent and that pretty soon we’d be planting one or two churches.
But we weren’t anticipating the scale of the task ahead of us – that the Lord was asking us to dream and to scheme and to gear up for the planting of 21 churches over the next 5 years.
We realise that 21 is a lot of churches to plant. In fact half that number would seem like a very significant challenge. And yet we have this building faith that with God anything is possible.
We’re thrilled to belong to the Vineyard family of churches who have planted literally thousands of healthy life-giving churches over the last 40 years. We have friends all over the world who can share their expertise with us. We have lots of great people within our church who have a God-given destiny that is yet to be unwrapped.
Let’s do this.
