A Portsmouth Church which has seen exponential growth since it launched less than four years ago is to open a new congregation in Cardiff.
Harbour Church, which began in September 2016 with just 20 people, now welcomes 700 worshippers every Sunday to three different locations.
The church itself was a plant from St Peter's in Brighton which too was a plant by Holy Trinity Brompton, the London megachurch run by Nicky Gumbel.
Continuing the trend, Harbour Church is sending a team of 40 people to Cardiff to set up Citizen Church and will be based at St Teilo's in the Cathays area of the city.
The team is made up of 10 worshippers who already live there, a family moving from Brazil, some moving from London, and 17 worshippers who will relocate from Portsmouth.
It will be led by the Rev Ryan Forey, currently curate at Harbour Church.
A commissioning service is taking place on Sunday which will involve Bishop of Portsmouth, Rt Rev Christopher Foster.
Welcoming the development, he said: "Harbour Church, which is now a flourishing part of our mission and ministry in Portsmouth, began just a few years ago as a gift from Brighton, when the Rev Alex Wood and the team came to serve Jesus among us here.
"Now Harbour and Portsmouth diocese are delighted to gift Ryan and a team to Cardiff. Christians believe in sending people from one place to another to do God's work - we are an 'apostolic' Church. And it is the mark of a church to be ready to gift and send out people to do mission, in their local setting and beyond."
