- …let us not love with WORDS only but with ACTIONS and IN TRUTH. – 1 John 3:18
- Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven – Matt 5:16
- Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven – Matt 5:16 (The Message)
This annual event is a unique opportunity to receive powerful teaching and ministry into areas of your life where you may be struggling and trying to break through. This is a key part of our Discipleship journey and we encourage all to attend at some point. The dates are 21 & 22 February, and you can see more details here.

Vision is a huge deal for any group of people who are trying to do something together. If you are part of any of our London congregations, and you missed last Sunday, please do check out your congregations Vision Focus message on our website here.
I had the privilege of sharing at the Hammersmith congregation what we believe “the Spirit is saying to the church in this next season. I am SO pumped and excited and expectant for what is happening in the church. I invite you to “read the vision, and run with it.” This is going to be an amazing God-adventure year!
Listen to the audio version here:
Or the video below:
“Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.
3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” – Habakuk 2v2-3
It’s our custom here at Every Nation London at the beginning of each year to ask: What is the Spirit saying to the church in this season as a focus? We’re not asking for a new vision or mission. We believe and are confident that as a church we exist “To Glorify God by Making Disciples and Making a Difference, with a call to the City, Campuses, Community & the nations through Church Planting.” The “Vision Focus” is that thing we hear the Holy Spirit leading us to emphasise, to amplify & empower the mission we are on. It’s that one thing that will make a difference to everything we do. It’s the fresh breath on our journey. It’s tuning in to the Voice of the One we are following. Come tomorrow, and hear in each congregation what the Spirit is saying to the church. Proverbs 29v18

As we come to the end of our fasting this evening, we are super excited about the all-night prayer evening starting at 8pm tonight (Friday 9 Jan) till 8am tomorrow!
I have just read this in my morning devotions:
“One day soon afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.” Luke 6:12
The result: The apostles were called, and v19 says that “and the whole multitude sought to touch Him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone.”
I know that its not an exact application, but COME AND TOUCH HIM TONIGHT!
Pop in for any two hour slot as we will be praying & worshipping through the night from 8pm on Friday 9th, until Saturday morning 8am. with people coming and going all the time.
The the focus each hour will alternate between prayer for a specific area in one hour, followed by worship in the next. See the schedule below as a guideline for what will be prayed for when.
