Hoylake Evangelical Church

50 Years and Growing!

Throughout April, Hoylake Evangelical Church is celebrating its 50th year in Hoylake with a number of events such as old friends' reunion, coffee morning, and photo display.  The main event will be at Hoylake Community Centre on 16 April when there will be a brief look back at the last 50 years and a talk from one of the area's most gifted speakers, Bill Bygroves, on 'A Passion for Life'.

Even more exciting is that the church has outgrown its current building between Chapel Road and Hoyle Road, and will be trialling meeting for Sunday Morning Services at Hoylake Community Centre from May.

Ray Trainer, current pastor, said, 'These are exciting times at Hoylake Evangelical.  Not only can we celebrate 50 years of God's faithfulness to us but we've also seen tremendous growth in recent years causing us to outgrow our building. We're all very passionate about the Hoylake area so it's fitting that we should be trialling bigger accommodation at Hoylake Community Centre.'

All four of the church's past and present pastors will be conducting services on the four Sundays in April.  More information is available on the church website.

Background: Ray Trainer has been the pastor of Hoylake Evangelical Church since the Spring of 2007 after relocating from Leamington Spa.  He worked for many years in various technical and managerial roles for IBM.  His wife Sharon is originally from Southport.  They have four teenage children.

Bill Bygroves is the pastor at Bridge Chapel in Garston and is wellknown for his Christian and compassionate work at home and abroad, often connected with football.

 Hoylake Evangelical Church, situated on Birkenhead Road, is independent, meaning that it is not part of any particular denomination, although it is part of the Fellowship of Independent Churches (FIEC), which provides legal and administrative support.

The word Evangelical means Bible-based, so all belief, behaviour, and organisation is taken 100% from the Bible; Church means a portion of God's people and is active and welcoming.

This is a very active church that has many meetings, Services and other activities.
