Our Experiences

We believe that sharing our faith is central to our vision, and times of testimony are included in many of our services and in our magazine, the Vine.

“I really look forward to my home group and feel that it is a really important part of my life. I love the discussions we have and how we care and pray for one another. Recently I feel God has really spoken to me through the course we did last, especially the section on ‘Count your blessings’. Over the past month I have tried to write down five things I am thankful for in that day and have found that my faith has seemed stronger and I am looking to God to be a part of everything in my life – the good and the bad. I definitely feel more joyful and positive. I know that the changes in my life are due to the wonderful power of God.”

Testimony from a Home Group


“Soul Survivor has been amazing! I have learnt so much about God and how you can live for Him no matter what you do. I loved meeting so many fantastic people and making friends. God really spoke to me at Soul Survivor and I should talk to Him about everything and stop hiding things away, because no matter what I do, He will always love me.” [Read more:]

Testimony from Soul Survivor Festival


“During the weekend I went to various services and seminars and the message at most of them was that the church needs to get out of the church building and to be where people are. The challenge is how do we do this?”

Testimony from Cliff College Festival


“The peace, the beautiful music and the ideas – many of them new – really helped me. Not only did I ask but I also listened, really listened to God speaking to me. When God knocks at the door of our heart we either rush to open it or hide and hope He goes away. Which we do depends on whether we see God as a loving father or a demanding taskmaster. Lord, help me to understand that you are Abba Father.”
