Soaking prayer

Soaking prayer is a time to rest and wait in God’s presence, it is a time to listen and receive. As we draw close to God, He promises to draw close to us. We have been deeply encouraged, strengthened and healed as we have taken time to be still before God. You are warmly invited to come and join us.

‘Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters … listen, listen to me …’ Isaiah 55

‘Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…’ Psalm 37

Father’s Heart – day conference for men and women

Saturday 15 February
10:00am – 5:00pm
Please go to the Contact page to book a place …

Please bring lunch with you, drinks will be provided.

Henry Schmidt, a passionate and inspiring Bible teacher from Canada, who runs Biblical training schools all around the world, will be teaching.

Jesus came to reveal that we are children of God and we have a Father who loves us. The world does not know this. But sadly too often even his church fails to receive this truth or grasp its significance. We stumble from brokenness to brokenness, distracted and desensitised to the call on our lives – we are called to walk from strength to strength and glory to glory.

Experiencing the Father’s heart is integral and essential for believers that we might be overcomers, no longer victims, healed healers not wounded warriors; whole in body, soul and spirit not fractured disconnected parts.

Come and be inspired by his teaching and testimony on the journey of discovering our identity in the Father’s heart that releases our destiny.
