Like Father, like son and daughter. That’s God’s desire for us – to know Him as He is, and to be like Him. Jesus lived with a secure identity as Son of the Father. His desire is for us to live in the security of Sonship too. This weekend conference will take us deeper in the Father’s love.
It will be a pleasure to welcome Peter Jackson in Golden Valley Church, from Toronto, in May as our speaker.
Peter and Heather Jackson were the founding directors of the Catch The Fire School of Ministry (SOM) in 1995, as the outpouring of the Holy Spirit was beginning to spread worldwide.. Their vision for the SOM came from many years of experience teaching and directing ministry schools with Daystar Ministries and Youth With A Mission (YWAM).
For more than thirty years now, they have been privileged to impart the revelation of the Father’s love and Sonship in churches, conferences and encounter retreats all over the world.
Go to Eventbrite to register for this event. Early booking is advised, as places may be limited.
Scott and Hilary Dalton from Toronto, Canada, are in Golden Valley Church again this week, for a series of meetings entitled, “Get Ready!” Holy Spirit is moving. Jesus is coming back soon. We all have gifts and callings from Him. Let’s align and consecrate ourselves to God for Him.
Public sessions include worship, teaching, and Holy Spirit ministry, and are shown on the picture below.

It’s the twenty-fist anniversary of God outpouring the FIRE of His love in Toronto, Canada! That’s an incredibly joyful and thankful thought, but it’s also a very sobering thought!
We are so thankful for this renewal which is still continuing and impacting individual lives and nations. We are so thankful that we are alive for such a time as this.We are so thankful for the way that John and Carol Arnott and the team at Catch the Fire have stewarded this move of God, with faithfulness and integrity. We are so thankful for the impact, healing, blessing, and God-encounters we have received ourselves as a result.
But it is also sobering. Where have those twenty one years gone?! This is a big chunk of life! And how much are we going to allow this revival to impact the rest of our lives?
As we reflect today on all that our God has done, may we be freshly inspired to push into more of Him. May we love and hunger after His Presence more than ever. May we find new depths of personal renewal and healing. May we carry His amazing love wherever we go. May we allow Him to take us into all the changes He wants to, laying aside our fears and resistances.There’s still so much more of Him to be found.
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.
What a great weekend it was in Golden Valley Church with our friend and visiting speaker, Scott Dalton, from Toronto, Canada.
Scott shared powerfully again the truths from the Word of God that enable us as Christians to live in the blessings of God.
Over the weekend he emphasised the two keys: receiving and abiding. These two keys relate to everything God does for us. For it to be personally effective, we first must receive it, then we must abide, or remain, it it.
So often Christians come to conferences and ‘receive’ something from God, but then allow it to slip away, and most of its impact is lost. ‘Abiding’ is vital follow-through.
On the Sunday morning, Scott preached on the well-known and well-loved story of the ‘prodigal son’ (or more correctly, the ‘loving father’). The Father’s love was again received and known by many, in tangible ways.
Audio sets are available from our church office.
We offer tribute to Bob Jones who passed away yesterday, peaceful and smiling. Bob was a contemporary prophet, known around the world for his prophecies which spanned over four decades. He was also known for His deep love for God and for people.
Bob prophesied in 1984, that the ‘New Wine’ would be poured out in ten years, which we saw and know happened in Toronto in January 1994, and other parts of the world.
Bob was known and loved by many friends of this church, some of whom he personally mentored. It would seem that his death may mark a change of season.
Bill Johnson tweeted, “Our wonderful friend and prophet Bob Jones went home to be with Jesus today, his first love, on Valentines a Day.”
Christian leaders around the world are mourning his passing and praying for his family. He is survived by his wife Bonnie.
I don’t think it is without significance that on the morning of the twentieth anniversary of the “Toronto Blessing” I sat in my hotel watching Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper addressing the Israeli Knesset and pledging the ongoing support of his nation to Israel. Two poignant moments occurred together for Canada – honouring revival and honouring Israel. I believe the two are inextricably linked in the heart and mind of God.
