Chaco to better know the Lord through learning more about the
Scriptures and what he says in them, so that people are better equipped

The Trump Family - Tom and Liz have been living and working in Brussels since 2013. After ten years in finance, Tom completed theological training there and is working full-time as the assistant pastor at Emmanuel Etterbeek church, which they helped to plant in 2016. Tom focuses his time on preaching and teaching in a variety of settings: to the gathered church and in a small group and one-to-one studies. He leads the children’s ministry and is seeking ways to train the men of the church to rightly handle and teach the Bible. When Liz isn’t working part-time, she looks after their young sons and helps to run a church-based mums and toddler group. She also reads the Bible with a lady at church and spends her time getting to know people in the community and improving her French.
Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is a multicultural city of over a million people. Brussels is a predominantly French-speaking city although different languages are heard on every corner. The Etterbeek district is one of the most international districts in this international city. The headquarters of the three European Union Institutions tower over ‘old-Brussels’ streets of art-deco townhouses and hidden parks. Etterbeek has a population of around 50,000 inhabitants for which there are just two small French-speaking evangelical churches.

redhill market bookstall
A group from Holy Trinity has been running a bookstall in Redhill market on the 3rd Saturday of each month since February 2016. Our aim is to encourage people to consider the claims of Jesus by talking with them over a cup of coffee or tea and snacks.
We were challenged to start this work during a service in May 2015 by a group from St Nic’s, Tooting, who have a Saturday outreach on Tooting High Street. Then once we learned that a charity could use a market stall in Redhill, rent free, it seemed to be an opportunity that was too good to miss.
We offer a wide range of free gospels and leaflets in languages from Albanian through to Urdu. Although we have details about HT and other churches in the town, our focus is to point to Jesus. We have had interesting and profitable conversations with a very wide range of people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, including
atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Greek Orthodox and a Reiki healer. We certainly have had conversations about Jesus that wouldn’t have occurred if we hadn’t been there.
Ask Paul and Carol Harland or Ian and Claire Gray if you want to know more.
