Volunteer Thank You

Volunteers’ Thank You Night – 5 Dec

Loads of people in the church give up their free time to help out in all sorts of ways, and we are so grateful. We wouldn’t be able to do any of our events, meetings and other activities without your help, and it’s great to have so many people involved in what goes on in […]

City Group Leaders Training - 9th or 16th July

City Group Leaders Training – 4 Nov

As a church grows bigger it must grow smaller! In other words as the number of people in a church increases, the number of smaller contexts for people to connect must increase too, otherwise a church can feel like a place you attend once a week where you sit next to strangers. A church is […]

CCC Games Night – 28 October

Three or four times a year we put on a games night after church. The idea is to have loads of fun, make friends and for there to be a family-friendly and non-pub option. It’s midterm the following week so hopefully that means the kids can join in as they won’t have to be up […]

Consumer Church

Consumer Church

Many have said that we now live in a consumeristic culture; that is, a culture where the consumers’ needs/desires/preferences dictate everything. In the business world people often say ‘the customer is king’ –  in other words, what the customer wants is more important than anything else. This has had lots of positive results including better […]

Church Planting in Dublin

Becoming a Church Planting Church

We’re just about to celebrate three years as a church so I wanted to write a few thoughts about the future and what it will take to become a church planting church. Hans Küng once said: “A church which pitches its tents without constantly looking out for new horizons, which does not continually strike camp, […]

Church - an introvert's nightmare?

Church – an introvert’s nightmare?

Sunday service is about to finish and you already know what’s coming next. The mingling and socialising time. People are off to get coffee, they are reconnecting and engaging in lively conversations.
