Sonoma Church 100%

by Sonoma Church

100% – that’s the amount of effort we put into 2012. Prayers. Fasting. Worship and good old fashioned hard work (anyone remember hard work?). Not 99% effort, but a full 100% effort. During 2012, we collected clothing and health supplies for Brampton’s homeless, and toys for children who have no families (about 680+). We conducted […]

We plant and water, Jesus causes growth

by Sonoma Church

The sermon topics of the month included “Can you love God and still hate people?” and “How to move away from your past”, which ended up creating a lot of follow up questions and prayer from the group. Nice! Sonoma Church loves church planting, and the GTA needs more great churches to spread the good […]

Do the WORK of an evangelist

by Sonoma Church

They come to a Christian church service in Brampton to make a new friend, to listen to music, to eat free snacks, to sober up, to mourn, to vent, or just sit down and pray. Some are lonely and all they want is a hug. Some wont come to the church but will come to […]

The harvest is PLENTIFUL but the workers are FEW

by Sonoma Church

  And thus ends 14 fantastic concert nights outside, at Gage Park. The grand finale concert on Friday August 31 was massive and there are many reports of people giving their life to Jesus for the first time, rededicating their life to Jesus. We’ve heard stories directly from people who’s lives have been changed. Marriages […]

Increase

by Sonoma Church

In 2011, February was a month of losing for us. Lot’s of ministry pressure was taking its toll and the church suffered a decline in almost every area, a hardship which would last for months.   February of 2012 was the opposite. We gained in every area, gained back everything we lost. We had our […]

Sonoma Church Celebrates First Birthday

by Sonoma Church

November was a quiet and bizarre month for Sonoma Church. A month of weight loss. Spiritual weight loss, that is. Sonoma Church encouraged our congregation to lose some spiritual weight. Let go of things, habits, even people who are dragging you down. Delete them from your phone, your facebook, your life. It’s hard to go […]

Autumn, the start of something beautiful.

by Sonoma Church

We used Email, phoning, txting, facebook, twitter, word of mouth, handing out flyers, radio, newspaper and everything we could think of to get people to come to our September worship night which was being held at Gage Park. As we sat there, 7pm came around, and there was about 20 people. Frustrated was a widely […]

Summer at Gage Park

by Sonoma Church

For 11 years as of 2011, there’s been an amazing ministry called Inspirational Music, which gathers Christian performers from different backgrounds, and on Tuesday nights (June, July, August) has them perform music, dancing and more, outside, at Gage Park. There’s a professional sound setup, tents for prayer, snacks, information, and free materials including free bibles […]

Sonoma Church Brampton – Fearless Faith

by Sonoma Church

How the first 7 months of 2011 flew by so fast is beyond me. I barely remember it all, it’s like a daze of confusion to me. I read through some of the Sonoma Church journal entries and I’m thinking “what, when was that?”. We have photos and videos to show for most of it […]

Hot Weather – Hot Faith – Sonoma Church

by Sonoma Church

Our friends at the Meeting House church celebrated their 25th anniversary in June, and we were very glad to see that happen. They’ve been a huge blessing to so many people including us. We hope Sonoma Church will one day celebrate a 25th, we haven’t even celebrated a first year as yet. But God willing, […]
