Church Plant Set To Launch Services

September 19, 2019

A Free Church of Scotland church plant in Glasgow is set to officially launch their services on the 22nd September.

Christ Church Glasgow was initially established by a core team led by Rev. Jonathan de Groot in early 2018. The group had a desire to plant a new reformed and contemporary church in the north-west of Glasgow. As with most church plants, Jonathan and the team had to start from scratch but they were confident that God had led them to reach out to their local community with the Gospel.

Commenting on the journey to get to this stage Jonathan said, "Our core team has grown slowly as people have heard about the vision and wanted to be part of it. We have been encouraged by the people God has brought to us."

"As a family, we moved home last February and started meeting midweek from March. Sunday worship began in our conservatory in May 2018. We then began meeting in a school lecture theatre from September. In December we moved into a church cafe area, where we are currently meeting. Each stage has seen steady growth as we worked towards launching."

"We have reached this significant day after much prayer, planning and preparation. We are grateful to God for how he has led us so far and for all the many encouragements we have experienced as we work on planting a new church."

"Pray that all would go well on Sunday. We have invited lots of people. I’ll be preaching through Mark’s Gospel. One of our core group is sharing his testimony. We will have our regular time of question and response, all accompanied by good coffee and cake!"

The launch service will start at 4 pm followed by refreshments.

Everyone is welcome.
