Sight for the Season (A Revive Church special…)

In Jeremiah 1:11, The word of the Lord came to the young prophet at the start of his ministry asking “What do you see, Jeremiah?”. “I see the branch of an almond tree,” he replied. 12 The Lord said to him, “You have seen correctly…” Right at the start of his prophetic ministry, it seemed important that Jeremiah was seeing right..so God gave him an eye…

Church discipline at Revive Church

A brief biblical study on sin, correction and exclusion from membership. Church discipline, in the context of a modern congregation, is one of the most difficult things Christians can face. But every church does have to occasionally deal with difficult toxic issues that will poison and radically alter the culture of a congregation. If not…

The Dream…

Since 1996 a vision from heaven has slowly burned in my heart, growing clearer year by year. In short, I am filled with the belief that God is going to move in revival power in our generation as he did with Wesley, Azusa Street, the Welsh Revival and the Jeffries Brothers. We are going to…

The 7 Values – the ideology of Revive Church

Strategies change. Even vision adjusts. But values stay rock solid forever. At New Life Church we have 7 values that never change. We use these truths to build our lives around, judge every decision by, and test every cultural advance against. They are all scriptural, eternal, the word of God. They are: Worship – “God…

Our Vision at Revive Church

Revive is an unusual church. While many churches (quite rightly) exist to reach the parish around them, build happy community and disciple new Christians, Revive does all this, but has an additional call from God. Revive is one of those places that sometimes feels more like a pioneering movement, than a local church. It has the passion…

How we build community at Revive

Once a church size passes about 100 people, community becomes more complex. It’s simply a sociological fact, and one that will affect you and your church experience. The small church family that all knew each others names, spent endless hours around each others homes for meal times, and enjoyed the kind of church service where…

How we Pastor at Revive Church

As soon as a church reaches a membership of more than about 150/200, people start to say (or feel) “The Pastor no longer has time for me”. The experienced among them will know that is a literal truth, not a criticism. The classic church, led by one Minister/couple simply will not be able to give…
