Update from Regions Beyond

Church Planting, Newfrontiers, News, Regions Beyond, Steve Oliver
Here is another update from one of the Newfrontiers apostolic spheres. Recently I was privileged to join the leaders of 14 churches in the UK as they met in Crewe for two days with Steve Oliver. Steve is from South Africa though now living in Dubai where God’s favour has been on him to strengthen and grow the church he joined 5 years ago and to plant another two churches from there. He also travels widely bringing oversight to churches on five continents. His apostolic sphere is called Regions Beyond. The days together began with worship and prophetic outpouring. God quickly told us that there was a path laid with flagstones for us to walk into new places and nations. This was emphasised by a prophecy using the fact we…

Urgent Prayer Request for Burundi

Burundi, News, Poor, Prayer
I have just received the following prayer request for Burundi from Simon Guillebaud (www.greatlakesoutreach.org) whom many of you know – he has been a speaker in several Newfrontiers Churches and at Newday. ‘This is an URGENT plea for prayers for Burundi. Few expect it to be peaceful this weekend. ‘Tomorrow we anticipate the President announcing his candidacy for a 3rd term, which many consider illegal. As and when he does, the opposition has vowed to pour out onto the streets. Small groups did last week and both tear-gas and water-cannons were used, but thankfully nobody was killed. I don't want to be alarmist, but I have never seen such fear in Burundians. Thousands have fled the country. Concerned friends have told me to get the family out before tomorrow. We…

Days of Prayer with Commission 2

News, Uncategorized
The Nations Last time I began to report on two days of prayer I enjoyed recently with Guy Miller’s leaders. Now let's turn to the nations. Reaching out to the nations has always been an important part of the ministry of Newfrontiers, as exemplified by the name. This has been continued within Guy’s sphere. Across the two days there were many opportunities to hear reports and to pray for individual situations. Recently Guy and his wife, Heather, had been in Bolivia, South America, visiting a church which has long been associated with the Newfrontiers family but, by dint of its location, often felt a bit ‘on the edge’. I am sure it must have been refreshing for the church to welcome them, but for Guy and Heather it was also…

Days of Prayer with Commission 1

Catalyst, Commission, David Devenish, David Holden, Guy Miller, New Ground, News, Prayer
Continuing to bring some news from across the apostolic spheres of Newfrontiers I would like to tell you of a recent time I had with some of the Commission leaders, the apostolic sphere within the Newfrontiers family that is led by Guy Miller in the UK. I have had the privilege of knowing Guy for many years and, particularly due to my long-standing involvement in India, have got to know many of his leaders who have also been involved there over the past 12 years. Guy has generously extended an open invitation to me to join the leaders for prayer days etc which is a joy and a privilege. I have also been involved with his strategic task team for ministry with the poor (another of my passions!) led by…

Kenya’s on-going challenges

Kenya, News, Poor, Relief and Development
Following the recent massacre in Garissa I was in touch with Edward Buria, based in Meru, who leads an apostolic sphere within the Newfrontiers family. Knowing how, with the growth of Newfrontiers, some find it hard to keep in touch with what is going on in other apostolic spheres I thought you might like to read extracts of his response. I plan to give news from some other spheres in the coming weeks; I am privileged to be involved in several and can bring reports from a personal perspective. Edward writes: Terror attack "We are a Nation in mourning once again after the 147 deaths of very precious young & promising Kenyans at the hands of terrorists. Like all other times, even in this grief we remain united as a…
