New Anglican Church in San Francisco

June 21, 2012 at 8:54 pm

We are very happy to announce the launch of a new Anglican Church in San Francisco.  Emmaus Anglican has just gone public and is begging a “soft launch”.  A soft launch is a series of monthly services, small groups and service projects that lead up to regular weekly activities.

Check out the new website! emmausanglicansf.org This is a great example of the type of website we build for our new congregations.  Santa Rosa Anglicans is a relatively simple site that is intended to be temporary in nature.  Once we gather a few households together who want to help start an Anglican Church in the Santa Rosa Area we put some serious effort into the new website.

For more information about Emmaus or about starting an Anglican Church in Santa Rose, please call Fr. Ed McNeill at 408.674.2770

A Good Beginning

April 26, 2012 at 9:43 pm

SantaRosaAnglicans.org is off to a good beginning. So far the site has received 80 visits from 35 unique visitors.  What do we learn from this? We learn that there are some people interested in finding an Anglican Church in Santa Rosa.

Daily Site TrafficThis is a very encouraging start for a brand new site without any advertising supporting it.

We hope that word will get out about our interest in starting a new church and that someone will want to be the first person to help start the ball rolling.

One of the things we teach about church planting is that it is only as difficult as you let it be.  The process we teach is enjoyable and stress free from the start.  Our prayer is that everyone involved in our new churches will find joy in their efforts and immense satisfaction in the results.

So today we are encouraged by this start and wonder who will be the first person to call Fr. Ed McNeill on his cell phone (408.674.2770).  Will it be you?

Planting Anglican Churches in Sonoma County

April 11, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Welcome to Santa Rosa Anglicans!

We hope that this website will be a vehicle for gathering people together for planting Anglican Churches in Sonoma County.  Starting a new church is much easier than people imagine.  Some churches start large, but most begin when two or three people respond to God’s calling and begin praying together on a regular basis.  Jesus promised that “wherever two or three gather together in my name, there I will be also”.  Every new church starts with one or two people who are willing to give it a try.

Santa Rosa Anglicans is supported by St. James Anglican Church in San Jose.  St. James is helping to form new churches in Northern California.  You can read about the way they support new churches here. St. James is getting more adept at helping with each new mission.  Today there are people working with St. James in nine churches that have started or about to start since 2009.
