The hotel was almost full, and there were over 60 guests on the conference, some of whom were familiar to us, but mostly new.
Roger led the opening session with an introductory evening focusing on how God is the ultimate worship-seeker, opening the scriptures and seeing how time and time again God woos his people, seeking relationship. This talk is based on one of the opening chapters of the Worship Workbook CMM is looking to bring out later in the year - watch this space for more information!
|The prayer ministry workshop in action|
After a free afternoon period the team led a creative prophetic workshop, which always brings people out of their comfort zones, followed in by a praise party in the evening after dinner. One of the important sessions on this conference is the Saturday evening, and a lot of time and space is given for people to receive prayer ministry. It was so encouraging to find a group of people determined to do this.
The conference finished off on Sunday morning with a communion service during which Roger spoke about the tabernacle - we enter the gates with thanksgiving, and the courts with praise, and because of the blood of Jesus we can have confidence to enter the most holy place.
Thanks so much Brian and the GEAR committee for inviting us and looking after us so well. We pray that the conference was a blessing to all involved.
