City Church Manchester has seen incredible growth with Sunday attendance nearing 200 people and over 38 nationalities represented. It is an exciting place to be serving and ministering. Many of our new people are either non-Christians, recent converts, or believers who have never really been in church before. It’s different from any type of growth I’ve experienced in the states, but we are so blessed to see the Lord’s faithfulness. We are outgrowing our meeting space quite rapidly on a Sunday morning, and with over 120 people attending our midweek Bible studies over two nights, we are struggling to find space to put everyone! It’s a blessing to have growing pains and to see God growing our church not just in numbers but also in maturity.
"There is so much ministry to be done in Manchester and really our struggle is not finding people
who are willing to
hear the gospel or even respond to it. Our challenge is finding dedicated volunteers and mature
believers who can serve
and disciple those in the church.
Pray for our 'middle' leadership. Pray that God would identify and grow this group to help serve the wider church. Pray as we are struggling financially to keep up with the growth we are seeing and that our members and supporting churches would give generously and joyfully to the work of the Gospel in Manchester."
- Ken Lippold, Executive Director and Founder of Alliance for Transatlantic Theological Training (AT3)
Rock Point Church believes that our primary outreach should be to our local community. God chose to locate Rock Point here, in this specific area, and there are multitudes of hurting people right in our own backyard who desperately need to know their Savior.
Although we mainly focus on local outreach, we also realize there are hurting people throughout the world. Therefore, our Outreach team is also deeply committed to build purposeful relationships with leaders in the global communities where God has specifically called us to serve. These relationships are designed to first address the spiritual needs, and then the physical needs, of those individuals who are eager to share Christ within their communities.
As well as having multiple local outreach partners Rock Point is also deeply committed to build purposeful relationships with leaders in the global communities where God has specifically called us to serve! These relationships are designed to first address the spiritual needs, and then the physical needs, of those individuals who are eager to share Christ within their communities.
Throughout the year, Rock Point Outreach offers many opportunities to serve our community through food and backpack drives, free medical and car care clinics, packing food for children in need, and more.
