NANCY GOUDIE

Nancy Goudie speaking to GVC

It was a seriously great pleasure to welcome Nancy Goudie (NGM) into Golden Valley Church this past weekend, albeit via ZOOM.

Nancy has been in Christian Ministry for forty years and is an amazing walking testimony to the goodness of God, and to the power of a life laid down for Jesus. Some of us in GVC are old enough to remember when Nancy and her late husband, Ray, began the group, Heartbeat, which was powerfully involved in schools and youth outreach ministry in the 80’s.

Nancy shared many stories and testimonies of how God has saved and healed people, and provided miraculously, during the past years of walking with Him. She powerfully exhorted those attending the sessions to “Come to Jesus for rest” and to “move into a much greater level of trust.”

Her new book, “Who Would Ever Have Thought”, is released next month, and can be preordered from her website at http://nancygoudie.com

She also leads a weekly DAY of PRAYER for the nation every Friday.

JOHN THOMAS

33DB2387-855B-4A9C-A0E2-FC87C02D8A2A.jpegWhat a delight this past weekend has been with John Thomas, President of (John Paul Jackson’s) Streams Ministries, in Golden Valley Church.

We are incredibly thankful for the opportunity of hosting John, together with Streams Training Centre UK.

The weekend consisted of a powerful,  revelation-filled conference entitled, “Engaging the Angelic” where we examined the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation regarding the role of angels.

Sunday morning John spoke from Hebrews and powerfully reminded the congregation of the vitality of the redeeming power of Jesus’s blood.

It was refreshing to receive such clear, sound, and revelational Bible teaching ministry, which was carried with  sharp prophetic understanding and tenderness.

 

ROSH HASHANAH 5780

FA45B7F3-E7CD-422C-A256-968DB92FAD46On Monday evening we gathered for Rosh Hashanah 5780 – the Feast of Trumpets – to the sounds of passionate worship and the blasts of the shofars.

We understand that the Hebrew Feasts, it’s calendar, and the nation of Israel itself, are governing factors in the times and seasons of the earthly.

5780 begins not only a new year, but also a new decade; the ‘decade of the mouth.” Our words – prayer, confessions, declarations – are vital, and we desire to align them much more in this season with heaven.

As those who are made in God’s image we are not just created beings, but also creative beings, where words play a significant part. We can, like Abraham, call those things which are not as though they are, and like Ezekiel, call for the gathering of that which has been scattered.

In Revelation, we find  Jesus Himself sounding like a shofar and calling John I higher into heavenly places. As we move forward into this new year let’s seek to pray and declare from that place too, bringing the heavenly into the earthly. We say, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”

 

STOP DIETING AND START LIVING

This Saturday we will be hosting a day conference in Golden Valley Church, entitled, “How to Stop Dieting and Start Living”. We will be joined by a team from “Fit for Life Forever”, whose aim is to promote health and well-being in the Church.

67702960_2878196068888245_1524136017626398720_o

The team will be led by Dr Sue Kenneally who is a GP working in a surgery in Cardiff. She has a passion to help people who are struggling with maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle. She and her team will be tackling subjects such as:

‘Why diets don’t work’
‘How to have a heart for God and for health’
‘Developing a spirit controlled appetite’
‘Exercise – getting moving’

The overall aim of “Fit For Life Forever” is to promote health and well-being within the Body of Christ. It is endorsed by health professionals who, in response to the obesity epidemic especially, have a desire to see the church become part of the answer rather than part of the problem.

A main pillar of the Fit For Life Forever ministry is the STOP DIETING-START LIVING healthy lifestyle, non-diet, weight regulation course. This is a Christian weight loss course with a Biblical foundation.

Sue Kenneally is a GP working in a busy surgery in central Cardiff where she has developed an interest in weight management and promoting a healthy lifestyle. She is studying Nutritional Medicine at university and juggles this with “being married to Dan and mum to three crazy boys.” She says, “I believe that living a healthy life honours God and I want to encourage His people to live well for His glory.”

The day will run from 10am to 4:30pm with an hour lunch break. Please bring your own packed lunch with you. Registration will be at 9:30am. Tickets can be booked on Ticket Source.

ASCEND: THE WORSHIP JOURNEY

It was with great joy that we welcomed Sarah Liberman and her team from Carmel, Israel, to host the “Ascend: The Worship Journey” conference in Golden Valley Church, this past weekend.

Sarah is a Worship Leader, Songwriter, and Speaker with a deep passion for true worship from pure hearts. Her love for God, and her appreciation of all that Yeshua (Jesus) has done is clearly evident.

Sarah Liberman Teaching

She challenged us to go deeper and higher in our worship, to listen and obey God’s voice, and to develop pure hearts before Him. Sarah carries a unique sound of worship, which bridges across generations and nationalities.

The prayer session on Sunday afternoon was powerful! Those in attendance sought God fervently for our own area of Gloucester and Cheltenham, for the UK, and for Israel. Many delegates commented on how impacting and life-changing the weekend has been. We are truly thankful to God.

Sarah has two worship albums, “I Am Before You” and “A Pure Heart”, and also her own YouTube channel.
