Holy Spirit Encounter


“The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the church is famishing for want of His Presence. The instant cure of most religious ills would be to enter the Presence in spiritual experience, to become suddenly aware that we are in God and that God is in us.” – AW Tozer

“I was all the time tugging and carrying water, but now I have a river that carries me.” – DL Moody (on his experience with the Holy Spirit)

Our greatest need in life is God. Not more things or more money or more activity or more advice or more knowledge but more of God Himself. The challenge for most of us is time. We are busy people who are constantly on the run. We’re also distracted people whose attention is taken up by a screen of some sort, be it a tablet or a television. Relationships take both time and focused attention to deepen and develop, and it’s no different in our relationship with God. The goal of our Holy Spirit Encounter Weekend is to provide the time, space, focus and practical teaching needed to move towards a deeper and more satisfying life with God, through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit. We want to invite you to join us for this weekend where the only agenda will be to seek a greater outpouring of God’s Spirit in our lives so that we experience His fullness in dynamic, life-transforming ways. The only hope for this weekend is that we’ll meet God and become more deeply engaged with Him so that we will live Spirit-filled lives for the praise of His glory. I hope you’ll join us for this significant weekend. - Graham
