Our dear friends,
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to the 2014 Vineyard National Leaders’ Conference in Nottingham!
The family together again...
After our decision to postpone the Vineyard Summer Festival, we are now looking forward to returning to Trent Vineyard and gathering the Vineyard family together for our customary mix of worship, ministry, teaching and training.
Aside from the main sessions, there will be a wide-range of seminars which aim to encourage and train as well as address issues that we, as leaders, all face. There will also be time and space to connect with each other relationally.
John Wimber used to refer to three commitments that we have as disciples of Jesus. The first to Christ - as our saviour and our Lord; the second to his Church – a love for being with and serving each other; and thirdly to his Cause – preaching the gospel, feeding the hungry, praying for the sick, sharing our faith and leading people into relationship with Jesus. With this in mind, our theme this year is ‘Christ, his Church and his Cause.’
It gives us great pleasure to announce our outstanding line-up of speakers this year: Simon Ponsonby (St Aldates, Oxford); Pete Greig (HTB, 24-7 Prayer); Lynne Knight (Family Impact, Zimbabwe); John Wyatt (UCL); John Wright; Eleanor and myself (John)
