Northern Ireland – March 2016

Northern Ireland has and always will be close to my heart due to mum (Shirley) being from County Down and enjoying many family holidays in my younger years. During these younger years, I experienced some phenomenal meetings and the tangible presence of God as many worshippers gathered as one to lift high the name of Jesus. Rachel and I are excited to be invited to more events in the country and look forward to seeing this develop further.

It was a privilege to be invited to lead worship at the Easter Conference at Mountain Lodge Church. The team joined with many anointed Ministers (some family friends from many years ago) from across different locations and lifted His name high above Northern Ireland. The Conference theme was ‘Adventure with Purpose’ and it was great to see many lives impacted by Him – encouraging them to keep going, never give up, to be attractive and that every person has a destiny. Great words spoken and now the key is to implement these words as actions!

I was led to introduce ‘Heal our Land’ at the Conference – the words were to encourage people to be the light in a dark world, to reach out and help the hopeless, for the barren to live again and for every chain to be broken in His name! Rachel and I trust this impacted many lives and the words resonated in many hearts as each person returns to their own homes and work.

We met many new friends at the Conference, were blessed by the love and care by each person at the Church and are excited to hopefully return again in the future.

Chipping – February 2016

44167287_sOur Team led worship and I spoke at Chipping (Lancashire) in February. It was great to see all ages worshipping together and wanting to make a difference in the local area.

I spoke on ‘Too near to quit’ and encouraged people that no matter what circumstances they are facing, they may be on the verge of a breakthrough in their lives. He provides hope in the face of adversity, and when everything seems against us – He is for us and will never leave us or forsake us!

We enjoyed blessing this local Church and pray all His best on each person and family as they seek to fulfill His calling on their lives.

 

Aglow International – Carlisle – January 2016

32272310_sWe had the privilege of leading worship and ministering at Aglow International Carlisle in January. The previous meeting had been cancelled due to the severe flooding that had caused a major impact on much of the city in December.

God’s timing is perfect and we were blessed to see a large number of people turn out for a late (or very early!) Christmas meal and to lift His Name in worship. It was great to meet old friends and meet new people as we praised and worshipped and as I spoke.

We reached out our hands and prayed a blessing over Carlisle and recognised the impact we have on our local communities – we don’t need a platform or a stage to witness to people – it’s often in the daily discussions we have that we can reflect Him and let people see the difference He has made in our lives.

We look forward to meeting with our Carlisle friends again in the future!.

2015 – A Review of the Year!

11799885_s

2015 was a tremendous year and we have been privileged to see the awesome things God is doing across our nation! We have Led Worship and spoken at many Events and the tangible presence of God has been evident. We are excited for what 2016 will bring.

God has laid on our hearts key themes for His people today, which have formed the basis of our Worship and key Messages. These include:

 

Water Walkers’ – the need to step out of the natural and the usual to experience His power and anointing. To step out from the safety of the comfortable environment and position ourselves for breakthrough, destiny and fulfilling His plans for our lives

‘This is your time’ – your today may be all you have, don’t miss your moment of opportunity and your time of destiny. Why not today? Why not us? Why not now? If you’re reading this, your time isn’t up – go for your destiny with all you are and have.

‘Forward Lookers’ – the past can have great memories, and it’s good to remember those times with fondness. Those times though are past, and today and our future is where you live now – make these days the best days of your life by having a vision for now and all the future holds according to His plan for each person.

We have been blessed to minister into Elim, Baptist, UCB Christian Radio, Premier Christian Radio, Christian Communications Network, Jordanstown Christian Centre, Aglow International, Hollybush Christian Fellowship amongst many other Ministries. We are privileged to engage with many Christian Leaders around the world to see His plans come to pass for our nations. We recently shared our Worship songs with over 6000 UK Christian Leaders in conjunction with Premier Christian Radio, and pray that many lives will be blessed through the music and lyrics.

So friends, we live in exciting times. Times where if we put Him at the centre of our lives and spend time with Him, doors are opening all around. We pray that the right doors open and the wrong doors close, and that we each spend time on what He’s called us to do, not missing out on His best.

Our new Worship songs are written to lift His Name in Praise and Worship and to bring the glory to Him. We look forward to bringing new songs to you in the coming weeks and months and pray that they will be a blessing as you reach out and fulfill His calling on your life.

May 2016 be your best year yet!

Love and stand strong!

Lee and Rachel
