What an amazing experience it was to be at Butlins with over 3600 Christians from Newfrontiers churches in our region and to worship and listen to great teaching together! The whole weekend far exceeded my expectations, and I am already planning towards next year, probably with 2 weekends (22nd-24th Jan, and 29th-31st Jan 2010) so we can include even more people from our churches. As those who went this time talk to their friends back at home, I anticipate we will easily fill the venue twice!
There were many highlights - Terry Virgo teaching on Jonah and Dave Stroud on being salt and light, for starters. Phil Varley and Tim Brown did an excellent job as they led us into God’s presence in worship - and the rap on the Sunday morning will stay with me for some considerable time! Being able to meet up with people from our churches across London, Surrey and the home counties was just brilliant. To top it all off, the offering of £95K was another testimony to the faithfulness of God and the generosity of our churches.
All in all, a great success! See you next year!!
