IN MY FATHER'S HEART is a compelling call from the Holy Spirit to go deeper into our Father's heart. It is the theme for our Encounter Weeks, this year. It’s not just about "knowing"; more about engaging heart-to-heart with Father God’s passion for us and allowing the Holy Spirit to ignite our passion for Him. We so want to share this journey of engagement with Father's heart, together with you. And trust that it will prove a truly transformative experience for all of us. There’ll be opportunity to go deeper in worship and receive inspiring, releasing teaching and personal prayer ministry, as well as time for your own reflection and recreation in this beautiful part of the Gower. We see Jesus doing amazing works of healing, restoration, renewal and equipping! Weather permitting, on one of the days (most likely the Saturday) we will have a breakfast on the local beach at Oxwich Bay!

‘Prophetic Art Retreat’ with Bhari Long

'Heaven on Earth'

27 - 30 September 2019

Event Type: Retreat/Course

Theme/Focus: Prophetic Art

Check In: 4 p.m. Friday

Check Out: 10 a.m. Monday

God loves to speak truth into our lives through images. Jesus Christ Himself used pictorial imagery as He taught. Draw close to Him and learn to trust Him to give you visual messages, both for yourself and others. Experience God speaking to you personally to bless and encourage you, and those he gives you a ‘word picture’ for. Learn to trust that he is speaking to you… for He has promised that if we ask for the Holy Spirit, He will give Him to us and lead us into all truth (Luke 11:13, John 16:13).

Be inspired by nature and the coast in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Be filled afresh and led by the Holy Spirit, as you experiment and explore prophetic art. Learn how to pray and worship God creatively. This Prophetic Art Course and Retreat led by Bhari Long, author of “Artists and Artisans Awake!” is a ‘hands on’ opportunity to get in touch with the creative gift you were born with and be inspired to paint! Encounter God through the prophetic art exhibition of Bhari and her husband, James, pioneers of prophetic art across the UK and overseas. Suitable for all skill levels and anyone creatively inclined, with exciting new options for those who've been before.

GOD'S House: The Story of Nicholaston House, by Derrick Hancock.The incredible story of a retreat house in one of Wales’ most spectacular beauty spots has been published.

‘God’s House’ is a detailed account of how Nicholaston House came into existence by the man who had the vision and was given instruction direct from God.

In 1990 God unmistakably led Sue and Derrick Hancock to Swansea to see a vision fulfilled which God had given them some years previously. The booklet (A5, 53 pages, colour) gives a brief factual account of what God did and is doing. It has been written for two reasons - to give glory to God and to show what very ordinary people can do when they step out in faith with God. 'All that we have accomplished, You have done for us' - Isaiah 26 v 12.
