Major Prophetic direction to the church –
April 2011 – a church where ‘streams’ of life flow out to the community in the form of courage, confidence, strength, healing, prayer and people who bring Gods reality to our world.
The ‘streams’ it refers to are people empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring God’s reality to our world.
February 2014 – The church is to be a ‘house’ of healing. People will seek out the church as a place to receive healing, restoration, strength and hope!
September 2014 – ‘This church will be like the many springs in the Wairau Valley that provide sustainance and life to the farms and horticulture.
The church is a spring, an oasis in the community, bringing life to wherever it touches!
