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
Closer Conference in Golden Valley Church
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.
As I sit in my room in an unusually deep-freezing January in Toronto, I am thankful; very thankful. It’s the twentieth anniversary of the day the Holy Spirit came and poured Himself out in renewal and revival to a small Vineyard church near Pearson International Airport. Within weeks thousands were flocking to the nightly meetings from all over the world, with airlines putting on extra flights from the UK, just to accommodate all the Brits who wanted to go over.
And twenty years later, the phenomenon of revival continues, and countless lives globally have been changed for the better, as they have experienced God the Father’s tangible love, received revelation and healing, and entered into deeper intimacy with Jesus.
In Golden Valley Church (then known as New Life Church, Churchdown) we initially experienced this revival in 1994 as a result of Rodney Howard-Browne’s visit to Birmingham, where we hungrily queued to attend the meetings and encountered God’s amazing Presence in a new and intimate way, with much joy and laughter, tears and cries, shouting and shaking, falling and resting. We were never the same again, as Holy Spirit kept on coming. Over the following days and months, Continue reading “TORONTO BLESSING”
I’m writing this short blog from the 2012 Revival Alliance conference in Birmingham, England. About three thousand people have registered to attend across the two venues. I’m at the meetings in the New Testament Church of God in Handsworth – a lovely venue and facilty. This year the event is being hosted by Catch the Fire / Partners in Harvest, of which we are so privileged to be a part.
Revival Alliance is made of half a dozen Christian ministries which were birthed out of or found renewal in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit which began in Toronto in 1994.
What an awesome time of worship and ministry it has been so far. Bill Johnson spoke yesterday on the primary reason Jesus came – to show us and bring us to the Father. As usual, Bill’s words were filled with passion, relevance and poignancy. Yesterday evening John & Carol Arnott ministered and there was a powerful move of the Father’s love as people were healed of sicknesses and infirmities. The tangible presence of God filled the auditorium very strongly, and we realised again that God has some amazing plans for this nation – not fogotten or forsaken!
Che An from Harvest Rock California spoke this morning and prayed over every individual in the meeting. This afternoon Benni Johnson and Rolland Baker are speaking. We look for much more in these days!
Come Lord Jesus!
It was great to hear testimonies of healings last weekend at Presence Keepers. One man with a lazy eye for 70 years was able to see much more clearly after prayer… another lady reported the cloudiness in her vision from a small cataract had gone… another suffering from ringing in her ears reported it had ceased… two others unable to lift arms above shoulder height were able to reach up and praise God… Thank You Jesus for Your great love.
In a week’s time we will be hosting our PRESENCE KEEPERS conference with Jeremy & Connie Sinnott from ‘Catch the Fire’ Toronto.
Here’s a chance to take stock, to enjoy the Presence of God, to worship, and allow Him to work on your heart for a couple of days. Why the title? Because we believe Holy Spirit is looking for those who will host and guard His Presence in these days; putting Him above all else. We want to be those people, and to allow Him to come and take us deeper into Himself.
Jeremy and Connie Sinnott have been worship leaders and associate pastors at Catch the Fire Toronto (formerly ‘Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship – TACF) since the church began in 1987.
They have travelled extensively to take the values of ‘Catch The Fire’ out to the nations through schools, seminars and weekends. They have taught and ministered on five continents, focusing on worship, soaking in God’s presence, renewal and healing of the heart.
Their passion is to see the Body of Christ drawn into intimacy with God with healed hearts, prepared for the coming Bridegroom. It is a great privilege to welcome them back in Golden Valley Church, and the Gloucester area.
The conference will be held at the ‘Cheltenham Regency Hotel’ in Staverton, Gloucestershire. Advance bookings can be made by completing a registration form and returning it to our ‘Firehouse’ address, or by phone using credit or debit card. Registration will also be possible on the door.
Session times are: Friday 10th August 7:30pm // Saturday 11th August 10:00am // 2:30pm // 7:00pm
Church members and Restoring the foundations (RTF) ministers Mick and Sue Taylor are continuing their 10 week ministry in Australia working with churches and church leaders in healing of the heart issues.
We continue to pray for them… and miss them!
Golden Valley Church places a high value on people – including church leaders – getting their hearts and emotions healed from past hurts and influences which affect the ability to love and care in a Christlike manner.
We are pleased to be a part of Mick and Sue’s ministry.
