Many Christians live out of their heads, rather than their hearts. Life goes on like a treadmill and they bounce from one thing to another without giving attention to, or taking time for, the needs of their hearts. They accept unhealed wounds as a normal necessity, and limp rather than walking or running in the plans and purposes of a loving heavenly Father.
Why not take some time out for your heart? Let the deep love of God the Father pour in and bring fresh freedom, wholeness, and authenticity into your life. These days will include key point teaching, personal prayer, and guided soaking time in God’s Presence. Deepen the soil of your heart for fresh encounters with God. Define the doorways of the heart, and enter into more of Heaven’s Kingdom and plans.
Sessions will be taught by Wes Boxall and others.
Each Saturday will run from 9:30am to 8:00pm with breaks for coffee and meals.
DAY 1 – 13th FEB.2016 – DEEPENING IN FORGIVENESS AND FATHER’S LOVE
DAY 2 – 9th APRIL 2016 – LIBERATING YOUR GENERATIONAL LEGACY
DAY 3 – -4th JUNE 2016 – MOTHER WOUNDING AND THE SIBLING HEART
What an exciting weekend it was in Golden Valley Church Gloucester, for our “CLOSER” conference. We were so privileged to have a visit from Jeremy and Connie Sinnott, well-known and well-loved pastors with Catch the Fire Ministries, Toronto.
From the very beginning of worship God drew us in closer to Himself. As the first song said, we began to ‘stir up deeper waters, calling out to You.’ Although it was a cold weekend weather-wise His Fire kept falling on His people. The loving Presence of the Father was preciously close. Several people testified of receiving healing during the event. One visitor claimed to have ‘seen hundreds of angels’ while worship was proceeding. There is something incredibly powerful when earth and heaven combine in worshiping the King of Glory.
Connie shared wise thoughts on how to practice God’s Presence, how to respond to Him more, and how to be sensitive to His heart. On Sunday morning Jeremy gave a great talk on God’s Covenant with us His people: how to understand the language of covenant used in the Bible, and how His covenant covers all of our lives.
We are grateful to our friends at St Oswald’s Parish Church, Coney Hill, for the use of their building for the sessions on Friday and Saturday.
It is with great anticipation we are awaiting our forthcoming conference with Jeremy & Connie Sinnott, from Catch the Fire, Toronto.
They are well loved in Golden Valley Church, and we look forward to sharing in worship and fellowship together during the weekend of 5th to 7th December.
Friday and Saturday will comprise a short conference entitled, “CLOSER”. Sessions will take place at the local parish church in Coney Hill, St Oswald’s, due to the larger size of the venue.
We know God’s Presence will be here, and we are sincerely grateful for that.
It is with great anticipation and excitement we are preparing for this weekend’s conference in Golden Valley Church, “A Father to You”.
The reality of God’s Fatherhood has been a primary value in GVC since its beginning and has been reflected in much of our history and teaching. But in a world where both ‘God’ and ‘Father’ carry so many mixed emotions and beliefs for people it is important for us as Christians to continue to fully align with the amazing, overwhelming truth that God is our absolutely loving and faithful Father, who provides security for living in a world that has generally turned its back on Him.
This weekend we have our friend Mark Gyde with us. Mark leads a ministry and has authored a book with the same title, “A Father to You”. He is a close colleague of James & Denise Jordan (Fatherheart Ministries) and together with Barry Adams, hosts a weekly webcast on a Wednesday.
We believe that this is a great opportunity to dig deeper into the love and truth of God the Father, and to soak up that blessing as we begin another year. The year ahead is full of uncertainty – we know that – but the love of God the Father is both certain and constant, whatever our life has been like.
We look forward to welcoming Mark in GVC at the Firehouse chapel, Coney Hill, on Friday and Saturday.

The work on renovating the chapel in Coney Hill is continuing at a pace, with internal painting finished, and plumbing and electrics almost there.
The chapel will be renamed ‘The Firehouse’ as we expect the fire of God’s love to warm people’s lives as they come to it.
We look forward to being able to use the venue for church functions and events very soon, and trust we will be able to bless the local community also.
