FRIENDS & FAMILY
In the same way that 'no man is an island' ... no Church can exist or function healthily on it's own. We have a number of key relationships locally and nationally who have been part of the Glo Torbay story and who continue to shape who we are becoming.

Global Generation Church, Thanet
GLO TORBAY is part of the Global Generation Family and the team in Thanet have been intrumental in the training, support and inspiration that fuels our leaders.
We share a deep friendship and common vision ... we are continually inspired by the innovation and passion that has become a hallmark of GLO THANET. Many of our ideas have been tested in Thanet first.
Mike and Stella Andrea who lead the team are our key apostolic influences and great personal friends!
24-7 Prayer // Boiler Room Network
24-7 is a movement of Prayer, Mission and Justice - reviving the Church and rewiring the culture. Feeling increasingly aligned with the passion, culture and theology of 24-7 we at Glo Torbay are becoming part of the Boiler Room Network.
The Boiler Room Network is becoming our support and covering as a church community.

SCRIPTURE UNION is an amazing organisation that has existed for 150 years and works in 120 countries!

Paul and Paula Weston who lead the team have been generous with their time and wisdom, investing into who we are through years of friendship and example.
Big Church Day Out
On the May Bank holiday a team from Torbay will head to West Sussex to serve 25,000 people at the BIG CHURCH DAY OUT!
The BIG CHURCH DAY OUT is a weekend of family fun and top Christian music to celebrate all that is good. Since 2008 some of us have been volunteering at the event and more recently GLO TORBAY have provided the stewarding leadership team on site.
We had the pleasure of being one of the partner churches for the inaugural Wildfires Festival in 2018!
Joining many of our friends from the around the country to make it happen, we had a great time supporting the security, children's and youth venues, media team, worship, hospitality and more... can't wait for next year.
