Finding New Life in the Spirit

​Between April and June we held a series of 7 Seminars designed as an introduction to a life lived in the power of the Holy Spirit. They provided a life-changing opportunity for people to find out more about the Holy Spirit, and to be helped in taking the first steps of a new relationship with Jesus.

If you would to know more about this, we
recommend that you download and follow the leaflet “Prayer for new life in the Holy Spirit” and if possible also read the first two books listed in the right hand column.

We also recommend that you attend the "Life in the Spirit" prayer group if possible. You can join others who are learning how to grow in the new life of the Holy Spirit.
