“WELCOME… CROESO… FÀILTE… to the first NWDY Weekend Away!

As we head into the 4th week of this epic adventure of a year, we are so excited to introduce to you this brand new hot-off-the-press app!

Many of you will know that New Wine is a family of churches working together. It exists to enable local churches to change nations for the glory of God, and YOU are an important part of the this! Each of you are called by God to live a life with Him, and in doing that very thing, you are working with Him in his mission — to make disciple-making-disciples who make disciple-making-disciples (and so on…)!

Romans 8:15–17 in the Message says: This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us — an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!

We love that this year there are 96 of you who have set aside a year to grow your relationship with God, to lay down strong foundations for a full life with Jesus. This is huge! As we are one big family, we want to celebrate all that the Lord is doing in and through you this year. Some of you are placed in small villages, others are in bustling cities. Some of you know you know what God is calling you into — to be teachers, aeronautical engineers, fashion designers, worship leaders… Some of you don’t have a clue what is coming, but we are all here for the same reason. To know God better, to lean into Him, to love Him more. We can be adventurously expectant now! We know this year is going to be full of incredible stories of love, restoration and transformation, because that reflects who our God is.

This app has been created to encourage us all to be living supernaturally in the everyday normality. On this app, we will be sharing photos and stories, as well as details about the weekends away and other exciting events coming up. Once you have signed into your hub, you have a few options of things to see! On the first two tabs, you can see what’s going on across the UK within the course at different hubs through the Twitter and Instagram feeds. On the third, we have a blog, where we will have regular updates from hubs, as well as encouragements and words from some of you so that we can continue to build each other up. We then have a tab all about the events that are upcoming.

This is in it’s first stages, which means there are more exciting updates to come (so keep your eyes peeled for these!). For now, keep sharing what is happening in your hubs and placements, we love hearing and seeing testimonies of what the Lord is doing across the UK with you! Here’s to the rest of the year — let’s be adventurously and outrageously expectant!”

God bless,
