We are excited to have Jeremy and Connie Sinnott back with us this week in Golden Valley Church for a mid-week conference.
Jeremy and Connie are loved ministers in GVC and it’s a joy to be welcoming them to Gloucester again. They come from a Barrie, Ontario where they currently pastor the new “Catch the Fire” church plant out of Toronto.
There is no charge for these meetings but offerings will be taken up.
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.
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 was a great pleasure to again welcome Jeremy and Connie Sinnott to our church for the ‘Presence Keepers’ Conference. Like us at Golden Valley Church they have a passion to see the Body of Christ drawn into intimacy with God through worship and soaking in His presence where hearts are healed and renewed in preparation for the coming Bridegroom.
The conference was well attended by people who came from a wide range of churches and areas. All of us had been drawn by a desire to have a deeper knowledge and experience of God in our lives. Jeremy and Connie led us in worship that was beautiful and gentle, yet tremendously powerful. There was a great sense of God’s Presence that arose and emanated throughout the place that lasted all weekend.
Throughout their teaching and sharing, we had fun and laughter with Jeremy and Connie. Connie shared how she used a little buzzer that went off every ten minutes that reminded her to praise and thank God for all her blessings and circumstances, which is so important to do. It was so refreshing in the way they taught us not to have a divide from God that made it easier to receive. They exhorted us to practice intimacy with God’s presence and to have a deeper knowledge of His heart of love for us and explained how we need God to be able to flow out of us to reach people and touch hearts. We can do nothing of ourselves. We need to be channels for Him. It was also wonderful to have time to experience some special times of ‘soaking’ up His presence and our Heavenly Father was able to gently draw us closer bringing release and freedom as He touched us. Our lives were opened up to Him in a deeper way.
Faith levels continually rose as the manifest presence of God came down. Signs and wonders were demonstrated on our second day and healings were in our midst.
Prophetic sessions were also arranged for people who wanted some encouragement from God over their lives and these proved to be enjoyable and affirming both to those who prophesied and those that received. It is such a joy when we allow God speaks and we receive all He has for us!
The ‘Fire Tunnel’ at the end of our meetings was magnificent! We all lined up and went through the tunnel formed by leaders (some of us several times)! We were enveloped by the Holy Spirit’s power and we mostly staggered through with much hilarity and laughter.
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
