Trevor and Andrea serve at Gothenburg International Church. Trevor is part of the preaching team at the church and both Trevor and Andrea are involved with evangelistic activities, youth work, children's camps, ministry to refugees and one-to-one bible reading.
Trevor is also developping a preaching conference ministry – Equipped:Sweden – as part of a growing Swedish gospel partnership. Through this he hopes to encourage a return to gospel-centred expository preaching in a country where fewer and fewer churches have the Bible at the heart of their ministry.
Trevor and Andrea have three children: Emily, Grace and Alice.

‘Therefore, we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.’ Hebrews 2:1
Do you ever feel that you’re beginning to let go of Jesus? That seems to be the danger for those who first received the ‘sermon-letter’ we know as Hebrews. For some, they were shrinking back because of suffering. For some, their hearts were hardening because of sin. For others, it was because of apathy that, little by little, they were drifting away. Perhaps for us, the effects of a lack of fellowship during COVID has caused a slow, almost imperceptible drift from where we were in our walk with the Lord. Whatever the cause, the warnings and exhortations in this letter are just what we need to hear in order to keep holding fast to Jesus, looking to him and running with perseverance towards the glory goal. Throughout Advent, we’re taking a closer look at Hebrews 1-2 on Sundays. At the heart of this section, we find both an exhortation to pay closer attention to what we have heard about Jesus and his salvation and also a warning not to neglect this teaching. It’s our prayer that we would all take time this Christmas to consider the one who is higher than the angels and yet was made lower, so that we, through faith in him, can draw near to God and enter his rest. Please pray for Trevor as he preaches these four Sundays and for us as a church that we would be faithful in responding. As a family, we’re also going through the same chapters in Hebrews with Tim Chester’s Advent devotional Fixated.
Of course, Hebrews also leaves us in no doubt as to the importance of meeting together, and yet that is really challenging for us all just now. We’re currently limited to gatherings of no more than eight people and so our Sunday services and bible studies are all back on the internet. Our Sunday service is at 11am and we follow this with a Zoom ‘fika and fellowship time’. Give thanks for these encouraging opportunities to discuss application from the sermon and also to share and pray together in break-out rooms. Next Sunday we’re partnering with Child Evangelism Fellowship for a Children’s Christmas club over Zoom. Please pray for the children in our fellowship especially at this time without regular Sunday School.
