What is Church Planting?
At Jubilee we want to take the command that Jesus gave us, to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19) seriously. One of the key ways that we see the disciples following this command throughout the New Testament is in the planting of new churches; establishing gatherings of believers that are then able to reach their communities.
As a church, Jubilee has felt a particular call to see churches planted across our region and in the regions beyond us, in both the neighbourhoods and the nations.
As a church, we ourselves were planted when Steve and Jo Whittington arrived in the city after being sent in 2006 by Jubilee Church, Teesside.
We then planted our first church in 2016 when we sent a team of 25 adults and 8 children led by John and Abi Flavell to start River City Church in the east of our city. We have had the great joy to see the church grow and flourish and impact the city in many ways. You can read more about River City and their story visit www.rivercityhull.co.uk.
How Do We Church Plant?
One of the ways that we are involved in church planting locally is by working in partnership with other local churches. Hull 2030 (www.hull2030.org) is a growing community of churches, working together to inspire and encourage church planting initiatives in our city, with the aim to see 20 new churches planted across Hull by 2030.
We’re also in the process of seeing a new church planted out of Jubilee into the North of Hull. This team is led by Josh and Jen Davies.
In April 2021, we will also be joining with Regions Beyond churches for the 'Regions Beyond UK Church Planting Training' which will aim to equip those called to church planting. For all the details click here.
