Location: Porto
Mission: Church Planting

The church planting project in Senhora da Hora began almost six years ago with a team of two missionary families who arrived in greater Porto with the joint vision of planting a missional church which would then plant other churches. The original team no longer exists as our dear Australian colleagues returned to Australia. However, we continued to believe in the importance of team ministry, realising that more team members add more gifts, more time, more contacts and more ideas to the church plant. The context of team is also an opportunity for mutual encouragement and growth.

After our Australian colleagues left, we prayed for new team members. God led us to Pedro in 2016. In early 2017, after her marriage to Pedro, Amada joined the team. In early 2016 we also met Chris and Rachel Humphries who volunteered with us for three months in the summer of 2016. God led them to join the Comunidade Pedras Vivas (CPV) team in March 2019.

Now that all the elements of the team are together, it is important that every team member owns the vision ofCPV. In July and August, we will be setting aside timeto discuss what it means to be a missional church, toreflect on the vision of CPV, to revisit the six principlesof CPV and to consider how these principles and vision should be worked out through the various activities

• Give thanks for the members of the CPV team.

of the church plant. It will be an exciting time as each shares their experiences and ideas, and it is our prayer that all team members will be united in a common vision for CPV.

Finally, thank you for joining with our team in prayer and support for the church planting project in Porto.
