The mission of New Wine is to see local churches playing their part in changing nations.

The church was established on the promise of change – of hearts, families, communities, cities – that the entire history of humanity and the earth itself would be changed by those swept up in this movement of God. The reality of change is rooted in the reality of God’s promise that he will work in and through our lives. This is a cause for celebration!

Our prayer for the 2017 United National Gatherings is that God will meet us in our corporate worship, through teaching from his Word and in ministry; that together we’ll celebrate all the good things that God has been doing and continues to do in our midst; that there will continue to be people healed, marriages strengthened, family relationships restored, friendships developed and people coming to know Jesus for the very first time; and that we will be sent out in the power of the Holy Spirit to everyone in the ministry and mission of Jesus, in what will have been a life-transforming week for all of us.

Come and join us as we embrace together the change God has for us and be the change agents that he wants us to be as we play our part as local churches changing this nation.

Bring your tent, caravan or motor home. We camp church groups together in villages, providing a great opportunity to build community. So make sure you tell everyone in your church that you’re coming, encourage them to come too, and why not organise some village barbeques and games?

We supply showers, flush toilets, disabled facilities, water taps and disposal points to make your stay as comfortable as possible. And if you’re not a natural camper, there is a Village Host on hand to show you the ropes. (If you are a natural camper, how about applying to be a Village Host?) Still craving your home comforts? Don’t worry, there are also plenty of B&Bs and self-catering cottages nearby, so book your place as usual, specify that you’re staying off site, then come and go as you please.

For more information about off site accommodation and tent/caravan hire, contact the Shepton Mallet Tourist Information Office.
