Chris and Lotta serve at Emmaus Church in Åkersberga, Stockholm.
Chris lead this newly-established church, as well as running outreach ministries in Stockholm City and Uppsala. Lotta is engaged in church administration and in discipleship training. They both hope to produce a course for evangelism and discipleship training that is tailored to the Swedish cultural setting. Chris and Lotta also plan to provide training programmes for those involved in church planting throughout Sweden, and to run training conferences in expository preaching (Schools of Biblical Training) that will empower the Church to stand up for Christ and live out the gospel in the 21st century.

In 2018 a young man called Simon came to join our church plant in Åkersberga but had in his heart to plant a new church in his city, Södertälje. Södertälje is about one hour’s drive from us. We welcomed him to our church and decided to give him all the training and experience we could and at the same time he would start theological studies to prepare for ministry.
But, do we need more church plants?
Many years ago we got asked that same question from other believers. Is church planting really necessary when there are already many churches in town? Why not invest in the already existing churches? These are valid questions and church plants do mean that, sadly, some churches lose people. But at the same time there are so many good reasons for planting new churches. If done properly, it's the most effective way to evangelise and reach new people, especially in big cities and growing urban settings.
