This is our fourth consecutive year here at Lenchwood, and each year we continue to build together as a Salt & Light family in the UK. We trust that you thoroughly enjoy the whole experience of this camp – the friendship and fellowship, the worship and preaching, the inspiration and provocation, the fun and laughter and of course the weather! This year we continue our theme as Radical Disciples, with a sense of God wanting to take us deeper, in order to see breakthroughs! We believe that God will give us breakthroughs in our personal lives, breakthroughs in our situations, breakthroughs in
our Churches and regions, and ultimately breakthroughs in our nation! We are delighted to have some wonderful guest speakers joining us this year – Jackie Pullinger (so well-known for her work in Hong Kong over many years). Dave Smith (a great friend, who leads one of the UK’s most influential churches – KingsGate), and Roy and Daphne Godwin (a great couple who have seen remarkable things in Ffald-y-Brenin). We believe these few days together are going to be instrumental in inspiring and equipping us for all that God has called us to at this time. Let’s make the absolute best of this time by involving ourselves in the many aspects of life at Transform! Mark & Nesta Mumford Andy & Emma Barclay-Watt Event Hosts

Katherine Ruonala’s visit to Caernarfon Pentecostal Church Paul Hummel It was with great pleasure that we were able to welcome Katherine to Caernarfon this last January and it was lovely to share her visit with Emily Harland who accompanied her. Katherine was invited to the UK by Basingstoke Community Churches and visited a number of Salt & Light churches while she was here. Having met her at Transform last year we thought that it would be good if she could come and minister to us here at some stage not quite expecting it to be so soon. We were not disappointed!
On the Saturday the whole church came together and had a whole days teaching on ‘Moving in the Prophetic’. This was a fabulous time together and the presence of God was immense. Not only did we learn a massive amount but we were all greatly encouraged by the prophetic words that were spoken over many of the family. Towards the end of the meeting one of our elderly ladies really became quite ill, so much so we called for an ambulance and the paramedics, but, praise God, as Katherine prayed for her within the space of fifteen minutes she had fully recovered... the power of God, He is good.
We hope to hear many more testimonies of God working in our lives and the lives of people we hope to reach with the Gospel. Read the full article here www.saltlight. org/europe. If you have your own story or testimony why not share it with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
As a movement of churches we are committed to church-planting. As we develop apostolic regions the vision for planting is being birthed by the regional teams. Tony Gray explains what led up to the decision to plant a church in Sunderland:
Tony Gray ‘In the Land of Three Rivers I’m longing to be, Where the Tyne, Wear and Tees meet the North’s rolling sea’ So runs the chorus of a song by the Teesside Troubador, Vin Garbutt. I came across it after getting a prophetic sense that the Holy Spirit was defining the field for the North East Apostolic Team in this way. So our regional strategy for planting churches and developing apostolic bases focuses on the three river valleys that define the area geographically and historically. One morning I woke with the words ‘Sunderland is a smoking volcano!’ in my head. A quick Google of ‘Sunderland revivals’, got four or five sites on the football team before a site on the story of spiritual revivals in the city, not only the beginnings of the Pentecostal Movement, but of later revival up to the 1990s.
With all this history there is surely a reservoir of spiritual fire hidden in Sunderland. We felt this was a commission from the Lord. The North-East Team met there and prayed on one of the bridges across the Wear; we shared the vision at our North East Celebration and the Daniel Challenge Team have been doing some research on the city. Our sense of anticipation is growing. We are looking to hear from people anywhere whose hearts the Holy Spirit may touch with compassion for the city of Sunderland. We believe the spiritual fires will burn again and the power of the Spirit and the grace of Christ be exported across the world from the Land of the Three Rivers.
Why plant a church in Sunderland?
Is God speaking to you about being involved in planting a church? Pray and talk to your church leader about what God is saying to you – we are excited about the possibilities for new church plants: The Harvest is plentiful – the workers are few!

‘The local church is the hope for the world’ (Hybels) is really another way of stating our 4th goal: Transforming Society. Activity at the grassroots as well as projects that influence policy nationally are essential. We have been encouraging local churches to keep sowing into the projects they are already doing. Here is one example of a project meeting a real need:
Refugee Support Network Catherine Gladwell When Khalid arrived in the UK from Afghanistan six months ago, unable to speak any English, he had never been inside a school building, never learnt to read, never held a pen. Now, at 16 years old, after a hazardous eighteen month journey across land and sea, Khalid finds himself alone in the UK and going to school for the very first time. Some 1,168 children like Khalid arrived in the UK last year. They are unaccompanied and are taken into the care of the Local Authority.
Refugee Support Network (RSN) was founded by members of Community Church Harlesden in 2009. We believe that at a time of great uncertainty and transition, education is essential and that when we invest in a young person’s education, we send them a clear message that they matter and give them hope for the future. Khalid was referred to our educational mentoring programme, and matched with a mentor from a local church who supported him to keep studying despite all the barriers he faced. He is full of ambition for the future, but like most unaccompanied minors, Khalid was granted leave to remain only until he turns 18. Khalid tells me ‘when I think of becoming 18, I am too scared, because maybe they will send me back to Kabul.’
There are many more examples like RSN in our churches and further afield – we would like to keep hearing about them. Send us an email to email@example.com
Theology: Shape your Thinking, Change your Life Lizzie Hollow ‘This is by far the best theological input I have ever had…. It encourages a great learning community that ensures you don’t feel alone’ – Matt Hall, KST student from Derby Ever wondered what the point of theology is? Everyone does theology – the moment we think about God we’re doing theology – at King’s School of Theology (KST) we help people do theology well. We train people to use their minds and hearts in their faith, and let that spill out into all areas of life. We are pleased to announce that KST is launching NEW tracks in September 2013. This change gives you three options for the focus of your studies: • Theology and Biblical Studies • Theology, Worship and Spirituality • Theology and Transforming Mission
0 VISION 2S CONTE2N0T
If we are going to plant and grow churches then strong, well-trained leaders are required! Theological training is one important strand of leadership training alongside solid character and established skills. We asked Lizzie Hollow (nee Green!) to explain some changes to KST from September 2013.
Whichever flavour you choose there’s a great foundation in faith, scripture, culture and mission. All of the tracks have core teaching with the other KST students, plus specific modules and seminars. God calls us into a variety of contexts, and being on a track means your training can be tailored to you. Wherever you lead and have influence, theological training will be of benefit. Why is KST a great choice? It fits in with life as it takes place over 3 years in 5 weekends per year. It’s for all: we are all called to disciple others so we are all called to different levels of leadership. It equips for the whole of life in and outside of the church.
To find out more visit the KST stand in the Hub and go along to the taster session on Wednesday, 2.30pm in the Big Top. Visit www.kingstheology.org for more details.
