Westcity Pneuma Retreat, October 30 & 31 – Registrations now open
Making space to encounter the Spirit
Registration and more details here.
Pneuma spirit, wind
John 8:3 (EXP)
The wind, the spirit, blows where it wants to and you hear the sound of it but you don’t know where the wind comes from or where it is going. It is the same with every person who is born of the Spirit. We cannot comprehend or control the Spirit, but we experience his effect.
Luke 24:49 REB
‘I am sending on you the gift promised by my Father; wait here in this city until you are armed with power from above.’
As we look to be church in the different world emerging from Covid-19, we want to be journeying together in the Spirit’s enabling presence and power. As the first Christians walked into their “different world”, they didn’t do it in their own strength. In fact, Jesus told them to wait until the Spirit filled them with the strength and power they would need for their various tasks. And we best follow their lead!
The Bible says a lot about that kind of waiting expectantly for God so we want to set aside a time and a space to be filled again by His Spirit. We think that He will meet us in that space in surprising and wonderful ways, and that we will feel more deeply connected to Him, our faith and wider communities when He does.

Welcome Party Home Date
You can’t say we haven’t given this our best shot! We have been prepared to host a community lunch and celebration – and we have stayed flexible! Yet despite our best intentions, the date for opening up of phase 5 keeps changing. Knowing that, we have decided to wait on announcing the next Welcome Home date until the Government gives the final all clear.
Please be on the lookout for this announcement over the coming weeks.
