Grapevine International Conference 2001

Added 31 August 2001 View full list    Print version    
Grapevine is a unique event that takes place every August on the extensive Lincoln show grounds.

Every year, the site is filled with tents and caravans as people come together from across northern England and beyond to celebrate their Christian faith and receive teaching from some of the sharpest ministries around.

This year, around 8000 people were on site throughout the event, and took part in the programs aimed at various key age-groups. The Big Top circus tent, where the main sessions were held, seated around 5000 people and was packed every day.

Speakers for the weekend included: Joseph Garlington (USA), Francis Van Niekirk (South Africa), Gerald Coates (UK), Stuart Bell (UK) and Mal Fletcher. One of Mal's sessions was the last evening, where all generations came together in the one place for what was an outstanding statement of faith and a commissioning for world influence.

He said later: 'This was my third visit to Grapevine over a six year period. The meetings were charged with a sense of God's presence; the teaching was relevant and prophetic and the general atmosphere on the site was very friendly and warm (as was the English summer weather!)'

'What was especially significant this year was the fact that twenty-one nations were represented at the event. Leaders and their people had flown in from around Europe and the world to take part.'

The Ground Level network is a core partner of Next Wave International's mission in Europe.

I watched Mal's inspiring EDGES presentation on bioethics. Scientists who do genuine research are a boon to humanity. Physicians do everything they can, fighting to save a life. This is based on the image of the Creator in every human being.

Mal, I'm preparing for Sunday youth service here in Germany, on 'Honour your parents'. I´ll never forget your article 'What Every Teenager Should Know About Their Parents'. Helped me to understand mine better...
