Trevor and Andrea work with 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.

‘…the day of the Lord will come…’ 2 Peter 3:10
Is 2 Peter 3:10 a reminder that you need to hear? The believers that Peter was writing to in his second letter needed to be reminded that Jesus is coming again – and so do we! As Trevor prepares to preach through 2 Peter 3 over the next month, we’ve been considering just how important this reminder is for us, in a time when people still ‘scoff’ and think we’re pathetic for believing such a thing. Perhaps there are times when we feel like Estragon in Samuel Beckett’s ‘absurd’ drama, Waiting for Godot when he exclaims, ‘Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful!’ And yet, in the play, Estragon and his friend Vladimir were waiting for someone who they weren’t even sure if he’d promised to return or not! But Jesus has! His word is firm and the evidence of the Bible and history is that God always does what he says. But why hasn’t he already come? Because his patience stretches long ‘not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.’ So then, if we really believe that Jesus the Lord and Saviour is coming again, ‘what sort of people ought you (we) to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God?’ How should we wait, act, guard and grow in the light of the coming day of the Lord? Please pray for us over these next weeks as we consider the reality of Jesus’ return and the nature of our response.
Give thanks for our return to Kortedala Forum! Yes there’s social distancing, yes we’re restricted to 50 people and so registration is necessary, yes the ‘fika’ is limited to pre-wrapped cinnamon buns … but, after almost six months, we’re back! And God is at work! C (Turkish/Lebanese background) started coming over the summer and he hasn’t missed a Sunday! A, who is a 15 year old Swedish boy living in Kortedala, came across our YouTube channel and mailed us two weeks ago asking if he could register for Sunday’s meeting. He was back again last Sunday and is really hungry for God’s Word. Utforskarna (Explorers/Sunday School) has also recommenced. Pray for Trevor and Andrea as they co-ordinate this and also share in the teaching. Praise God for the translation of Child Evangelism Fellowship’s Discover the Bible (Year 2).
