We are a church that plants churches because we are a church called to make disciples.
Summerside is committed to seeing churches planted both locally and internationally. We have planted a church in the Chelsea Green and Glen Cairn community. Chelsea Green Community Church was planted by two former interns at Summerside. (Read Peter’s and Derek’s bios here). We desire to be a place where leaders are grown, coached, developed, and sent out for God’s glory. We are excited to see this church grow and serve its community.
Here is a brief update from Peter Barnaby and Derek Enns:
Thanks to all of our Summerside family for your ongoing prayers and financial support. This last year has been absolutely incredible as we’ve seen God at work in the hearts of our core team and people from our neighbourhood. Since launching on Easter Sunday in April 2018, our congregation has grown from 27 to an average of 70 people attending worship on a weekly basis – many coming from the surrounding community after attending one of our outreach events. For the year ahead, please join us in praying for the following:
¨ For God to continue cultivating favour in the hearts of our neighbours, especially for those who have demonstrated a spark of faith, to be strengthened and built up in Christ.
¨ For protection over the individuals and families that make up our core team as they step into leadership.
¨ Portions of our 70 year old building are in need of updating and repair. Please pray for provision in the areas of skilled labour and financial resources.
¨ For the Yazidi and Muslim refugee families who are taught English by the YMCA in our building throughout the week; many of whom have endured trauma and suffering at the hands of ISIS. Members of our church family have made significant inroads with these individuals. Pray for opportunities to share the Word of Christ with them.
