If…

Resetting The Church

Jarrod shares challenging questions every church leader should be considering in this powerful pivot point in history. The recent period of reflection has not only been good for me as a person, but also for us as a church. It is so easy in the hustle and bustle of church life to experience mission drift,…

Releasing Children Into The Gifts Of The Spirit

In order to see children grow in the gifts of the Spirit, we need to bring them alongside us in ministry and life, with the hope that one day they will go further than us – just like Joshua ultimately took God’s people further than Moses could. This means teaching them how to worship and…

“It’s Not About Failing, it’s about Unveiling”

One thing God has spoken so clearly to me during these recent troubling and difficult times, with tricky decisions, frustrating complexities and daunting challenges, is that He has NOT brought us to this place to fail. I’ll say it again: He has NOT brought us to this place to fail. On Sunday 9th February 2020,…

Unusual Collaborations Breaking Out In The Church

In this coming era we are seeing the Church grow up from mere unity events, and good friendships (both good in their own way!) to a place of real collaboration. God is joining churches together! But what is more I think He is going to join churches with businesses and churches with local councils. He’ll…

Prophetic Dream Coming To Pass

On the night of 14th December 2020 I had a dream. In the dream I was leading a church service from the stage, with many in attendance. As I was about to announce the guest speaker, hundreds began to leave the service from the rear of the hall. Rapidly, they streamed out in droves, leaving…

God’s judgement On The Church

Jarrod shares a prophetic sense of the judgement of God that is impacting many churches, and what God is saying through it… For some months I have felt God calling the Church, especially leaders, back into what I informally call the “Strategy Rooms of Heaven” – God has new methods and purposes to unveil to…

God’s Strategy For The New Era

Some months ago, while seeking God for fresh strategies and wisdom to navigate this Divine Reset season, I dreamt I met the Holy Spirit. In the dream He appeared like a Man of Fire to me. If you’ve ever seen a movie stunt man set alight in a fire-retardant suit, it was pretty similar! However,…

Churches Are Joining The Innovation Revolution

The move to online outreach, community and discipleship during the pandemic was an obvious shift for many churches, but other innovations are also breaking out across the Church world… I know of new types of relationship and collaborations with organisations nearby and far afield, as online connection removes geographical boundaries. There are new online training…

A Fresh Call To Prayer!

If we are honest, the prayer meeting is usually one of least attended activities in church. It seems many Christians would rather do most other things in church life, than pray. And yet it sits there, firmly in the list of things the early church was most devoted to. As I have gone through our…

A Vision of the Church in the New Era

As you read, read slowly, and let the prophetic potential of a glorious Bride arising in the earth in this coming era, flood your heart with the purposes of Jesus: I dream of a Church filled with God’s magnificent glory. Her members are adventurers, not mere attenders. Her leaders are releasers, not containers; equippers, not…

PROPHETIC DREAM: Embraced by the Man of Fire!

Some months ago, while seeking God for fresh strategies and wisdom to navigate this Divine Reset time, I dreamt I met the Holy Spirit. In the dream He appeared like a Man of Fire to me. If you’ve ever seen a movie stunt man set alight in a fire-retardant suit, it was pretty similar! However,…

PROPHECY: “The Church Has Left The Building”

On the night of 14th December 2020 I had a dream. In the dream I was leading a church service from the stage, with many in attendance. As I was about to announce the guest speaker, hundreds began to leave the service from the rear of the hall. Rapidly, they streamed out in droves, leaving…

PROPHECY: The Silver Surfers are Arising!

I see two generational course corrections emerging as we enter the new era. It is as if the Spirit of Elijah is at work again in this Divine Reset time – In my own words, I’d say the Silver Surfers are Rising, and the Young Arrows are being Released. In recent years, in many apparent…

Pandemic Prophecy: The Next Stage

“Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Marie Curie On 25th March 2020, as we were entering our first national lockdown in Britain, I spent time in prayer and was impacted by a vision of God’s…

Moving from Unity to Collaboration

For about a year the Lord has called out to my spirit that the Church is about to move beyond mere event-based unity, to a place of deeper, selfless collaboration. Unity is good of course. But many of us can remember the old unity events right back to the 1980’s. Our first attempts at unity…

I know of new types of relationship and collaborations with organisations nearby and far afield,…

PROPHECY – God’s New Call to Prayer!

Could it be that our propensity to run to mission and busyness, without attentively tending to our altars of prayer, encounter and worship, means much of our church efforts are often powerless good works? Does our prayerlessness mean we lack the markers of God’s power among us, His presence upon us and His glory within…
