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.┬áSarah 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.

PRESENCE CONFERENCE

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

Jeremy and Connie Sinnott
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. Jeremy & Connie SinnottOn 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.

TORONTO PASTORS RETURN TO GLOUCESTER

Jeremy and Connie SinnotIt 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.

RETURN VISIT OF GALILEAN PASTOR

claude ezagouriWhat a pleasure it was to host Pastors Claude and Michele Ezagouri from Tiberias in Galilee. Their church, Morning Star Fellowship, is an important centre of prayer and worship in Galilee, reaching out to Jews and non-Jews with a variety of projects.

Pastor Claude reminded the church of the strategic importance of Israel in terms of God’s plans and purposes for the earth. Often there is much misunderstanding amongst Christians regarding His unchanging love for the Jewish people, with ‘replacement theology’ being preached.

Claude has recently published a book entitled, “Israel: The Land in Controversy”, which is available on Amazon

HOW WE LOVE HOUSE OF PRAYER

prayerIt’s been about two years now since we began regular “House of Prayer” sessions in Golden Valley Church. They are awesome times!
People who are hungry for God gather to worship and pray. The sessions are well-attended, and well-loved.
This week Tuesday night’s session focused on prayer for Israel and Palestine. This morning we prayed especially for our own city of Gloucester.
We love being a House of Prayer and a House of Worship. We appreciate this calling from God that is ours. We can only say, “More Lord!”

IHOP STREAM

During February on Tuesday evenings we are using live and archived streaming from the IHOP (International House of Prayer Kansas City) 24/7 Prayer Room. This is to supplement our already existing House of Prayer sessions in Golden Valley Church.

IHOPfeed1

IHOP Prayer Room is a highly valued unceasing offering of prayer and worship, day and night, seven days a week. We are thankful for the ability to tune in and share with our friends in KC as we seek God together.

Sessions in GVC will run from 7:30pm to 9:30pm on Tuesdays this month, and will also sometimes include additional content.
