It’s an exciting time for Wellington Evangelical Church. We recently experienced an astonishing level of growth (25%) as we welcomed the news that our core team has grown from four to five. The fabulous fifth member of the core team is making their presence known in various ways but they are unwilling to reveal their identity until sometime mid-December.
At the moment Adele is bearing much of the responsibility of caring for, nurturing and growing this new member and is occasionally finding it quite tiring. Please pray for Adele and the new member and that their arrival in December will be without complication.
The other members of the core team are delighted and have some interesting suggestions as to the name and identity of the new member.
Welcome to the Blog for Wellington Evangelical Church.
Like it says, we are new church that loves Jesus and loves Wellington. But we are so new, we don’t quite exist yet. Over the next few months we will be sharing our thoughts, our plans & our prayers as we seek to start a new church in Wellington. It is our dream that that there may be many more people in this cool little city who know, love and serve Jesus.
‘What about me?’ you may ask. Well, we’d love for you to be involved and help us make this thing happen. There are a few ways you can ‘ride shotgun’ with us as we start up.
- Pray – For us as a church, for the Southertons (church planters), for Wellington, and for people to come to know, love and serve Jesus.
- Come – We are looking for people to come with us. All you need is a sense of adventure and a commitment to seeing the lost surrender to the mercy of Christ. Some of you might be in Wellington already, some elsewhere in NZ, maybe even some from across the ditch, where ever you are, we’d love to talk to you about coming along.
- Contacts – Know someone in Wellington who might like to be involved? Let them know about Wellington Evangelical and put us in contact. We’d love to meet with, talk to, get to know, have coffee with, and pick the brains of as many people in Wellington as possible (even if they don’t go to church). It all helps as we try and get our head around how best to connect this city with Jesus. Fill in a contact form.
- Support – Sadly we have to give up a paying job in Sydney to try and make this happen, so we need your support. The plan is for Wellington Evangelical Church to become self-supporting but every new church need some outside support to help it get off the ground. Why not ‘invest’ in something new for the Kingdom of God and sign up to support us financially?
