Calvary Chapel Whittier

Pastor Alvin sharing the gospel at Exeter Road Show

Pastor John Greenroyd came with his daughters with CCWhittier and also this picture was taken during the Road Show in Exeter as he and Damian was sharing the gospel to a local man.

During the Sunday Morning service at the WOOLACOMBE Beach

CCWHITTIER arrived last Friday and they've been on the go since then so it's been hard to take pictures of the whole team.
This week they've been all over NorthDevon doing outreaches and street evangelism with the locals.
As soon as we get a hold of new pictures of them we will surely post them up.

Please continue to keep them in prayer during the outreaches and the rest of the Creation Fest.


HI Y'ALL, Here some more pictures of what CCPARIS, TX been doing here in England.

to the Pechonis family as she helping them out to watch their kids during this busy time of Creation Fest.


This is the first year Creation FEST was invited to do something inside the EXETER CATHEDRAL and it was a big deal to have something like these to happen in North Devon....THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS for the ROAD SHOW's and Creation Fest.
Scott Cunningham and his band did all the worship and also Phil Pechonis and Brian Broadersen shared that evening.

This past Sunday, Scott Cunningham shared the WORD at CCWOOLACOMBE. He encouraged and exhorted everyone from I Peter 4 and he really highlighted on the gifts of GOD that has given each one of us that we should serve others as a good stewart of GOD's grace.

I Peter 4:10
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Creation Fest Roadshow: Bideford

Yesterday was the festival roadshow in Bideford. It was an absolute amazing day on the green. The Lord did such a unique work in the lives of many people. The bands were really good, the messages spoken were moving and the Spirit of God was breaking through into a dark community.

Bideford has the reputation of being a very spiritually dark place, plaqued with nightclubs and pubs. The park that was used as the venue for the roadshow is a favorite place for drunkards and drug addicts to gather. Throughout the whole day the Spirit was working in the hearts of many who gather to drink themselves unconscious to escape the emptiness, brokenness and pain that results from a life ravaged by sin. There were many hecklers throughout the day, but by the end of the night several of them had come forward to make a decision for Christ. It was really a wonderful work of God.

Please continue to pray for the Roadshow in Exeter this coming Saturday as well as the Roadshow in Illfracombe next week as well. Please pray for strength and fortitude for the whole team as there are many hours being invested into all these large events.

Team Blue-tac Posters Exeter

Yesterday, I went with a couple of blokes named Stewart and Simon to poster Exeter. It was actually our third time their postering for the festival. We had a great time of fellowship while doing some marketing for Creation Fest.

At the ends of the High St. there are some pillars that the city has put there as sources of information, mainly posters. We took the liberty to poster the entire thing, it was amazing.

All this week we have basically been postering different towns in the surrounding area, it's a great time and offers many opportunities to share the Gospel with shopkeepers and people hanging out in the city. People are often puzzled at why I am living here, and why I have decided to make England our home. It's a great opportunity to share the love of Christ and reasons why I believe in Jesus.

After a long day of postering, it was nice to get a bite to eat and have a nap on the way back to Woolacombe.

Please pray for the Biddeford Roadshow, Exeter Roadshow and Main Festival.

By the way, blue-tac is what we use to stick posters to windows


Last weekend Phil and Megan took us to Barnstaple...we were totally amazed of this town because we had heard about his town when we read about it in AGAPE LEADERSHIP. This is a book about R. C. Chapman he was a major figure in the early Brethren movement in Barnstaple, UK. In the book it stated that R.C. Chapman walked daily through the streets of Banstaples to the rest of the surrounding North Devon area and sharing the love of Christ. Charles Spurgeon often described R. C. Chapman ""the saintliest man I ever knew"
But unfortunately today if you ask an average British person, he is name has long been forgotten here. I challenged you all to read about this saintliest man Charles Spurgeon knew.

Here are some pictures of Barnstaple....

Flimsy Faith Won't Last

I just came across this quote by Os Guinness from his book, The Dust of Death:

"It is ironic that, although fundamentalists are implacably opposed to liberalism, their extreme reaction shows the same weakness. They, too, stress the leap of faith and make irrationality almost a principle, dismissing the serious questions of seeking modern men as intellectual smoke-screens or diversions to conceal deeper personal problems. All this masks a desperate intellectual insecurity, barely disguised by the surrounding hedge of taboos to preserve purity. The strident intolerance of much guilt-driven evangelism betrays the same insecurity. In these circles, much that is taught has to be unlearned in the wider school of life, and it is not surprising that universities are littered with dropouts from such groups. Their non-rational, subjective faith is cruelly punctured by varsity-level questions, and many manage to survive only by resorting to a severely schizophrenic faith which they hold to be true religiously but not intellectually, historically, or scientifically."

That was written in 1973, and yet we Christians as a whole have still not aggressively addressed this problem in our churches and in our own hearts. We've taken the lazy way out. Unfortunately, the lazy way of encouraging people to ignore doubts and questions in order to preserve a flimsy sort of "faith," is precisely what prevents the development of a solid, lasting faith that rests on reality. And ironically, the "hide your doubts" approach also betrays a complete lack of faith, for only those who think there are no answers to be found are afraid to ask the questions.

We are not non-rational beings. No one can believe something by sheer force of will if he doesn't think it's true. At least, no one can do so for long or with any real power. "If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins," and deep down, we all know it. What good does it do anyone to pretend otherwise?

We are asking for special prayer for 9-Month old son Isaac, his the son of our friends Danny and Michelle... Tomorrow morning he is scheduled to have a "Dermoid Cyst" removed from the back of his skull. This will mean he has to be placed under General Anesthesia for about 1 1/2 hours. The Doctors re-assure us that it is a very common and simple procedure, posing no threat to the brain.


This past Friday Phil Pechonis shared fromt he book of NEHEMIAH and exhorted all of us to keep pressing on.
It is really awesome to see young people to hungry for the WORD of GOD.
Please continue to pray for the ROADSHOWS and the upcoming CREATION FEST.

These are pictures of beautiful historic church buildings that you can find all over England, but inside it is usually empty, dark and cold. Where maybe 50 to 100 years ago it was full of people, color and life. They remind me of how our relationship with Christ can be cold, dark and empty, upon His return, what condition will He find His relationship with you? Is it an old archaic building that monuments a for too distant work of His Spirit or is it a temple of the Holy Spirit, being laid daily in intimate communion?

Calvary Chapel Woolacombe Sunday Service

This past Sunday was our first fellowship service here in Woolacombe...
It is something different and awesome about being overseas and worshipping with
our brothers and sister in the LORD.

It reminds me of the psalmist song

BEHOLD, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Running down on the beard,
The beard of Aaron,
Running down on the edge of his garments.

It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the LORD commanded the blessing--
Life forevermore.

Psalm 133
