In September 2008 the Lord released us from the day-to-day running of Vinelife Church, Manchester in order to fulfill the mandate he has given us for the next season of time. This has enabled us to focus on the things he has called us to do into the future.

One of the benefits of this situation is that we now have more time to devote to teaching and training the Body of Christ to fulfill it's call to do the works of Jesus and be fully involved in the ministry of Jesus. This means that we are available to travel and visit churches and groups in this country and abroad. 

If you would like us to come and minster at your church or ministry then get in touch!


What we’ve found best as far as format is concerned is to do a Friday evening and all day Saturday seminar - but also it’s been helpful if we’ve been able to do some work with leaders either prior to the weekend or just after.

As far as content is concerned, the materials we tend to do is very varied, but as well as our 'Vineyard' roots, we have also really benefited from an emphasis on ‘prophetic’ ministry and we’ve felt it's been a real plus in the thing’s we’ve been doing. To elaborate a little, these are the areas of teaching and training the Lord has used us in:
