The word revival is back on the lips again of people in Newfrontiers and beyond! There’s a deep sense of faith, a call to prayer and a longing that God's compassion and power is released in the land. Our prayer meetings and preaching are lining up with the expectations that God is going to move again with power across this nation.

The gospel writer Luke records that some of the first people that Jesus chooses to reveal himself to following his resurrection, are two disciples that were on their way out of Jerusalem. Andy helps us to see that Jesus comes to those who are downcast and have lost hope. The transforming message of his victory over sin and death changes us and sends us out into the world.
