In response to a strong prophetic sense, New Wine has taken a step of faith and obedience in making United Breaks Out free again this summer to resource, empower and equip the Church for the sake of the nation.
“There are expenditure costs of more than £300K for the digital event. Originally we planned to charge a ticket fee to cover costs, but God had other ideas. We believe He is calling us to be generous and to give UBO away for free again this summer. We trust that it’s His plan and that He will release provision to enable it.”
Jules Morgan, Executive Director
New Wine has been called to break out of normal campsite boundaries once again – inspired by the Spirit to equip the local Church for this season. Their vision is to lead the nation with confidence towards a renewed understanding of and love for our Saviour – and towards a world where signs and wonders are our new normal.
“Amidst all of the challenges of the last year, one that has hit hardest has been losing the opportunity to gather. For the Church, gathering together has not just a social significance but a deeply spiritual one, as we meet not only with others but, in a special way, with God. This year, we’ve taken the step of faith to offer all of our celebrations, our youth and children’s programmes, and our Accessible Church stream, for free. We hope that churches and individual Christians will be able to gather round these offerings to receive healing, encouragement and fresh vision to serve the nation as we begin the process of recovery.”
Paul Harcourt, New Wine National Leader
United Breaks Out launches at 7pm on Thursday 29 July, with live hosting, sung worship, prayer ministry and teaching from Paul Harcourt (New Wine) and Carl Beech (Christian Vision for Men).
Evening speakers across the week include Amy Orr Ewing (Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics), Francis Chan (Crazy Love), Katia Adams(Frequentsee), Agu Irukwu (Jesus House), Selina Stone (St Mellitus) & Sammy Jabangwe (The Message Trust).
Morning Bible Teaching will start at 11am from Friday 30 July, led by David Parker (Pastor Emeritus, Desert Vineyard, California) & Kenny Borthwick (Church of Scotland).
“This year marks my 31st anniversary working with New Wine. For the past three decades, I’ve watched the ripple effects of their core vision to strengthen and encourage churches reach around the world, moving us ever closer to the church Jesus called us to be, and it has been a privilege to partner in that work with them. In this season of so much upheaval and isolation, the commitment to making New Wine widely accessible online pushes those ripples further still.”
“5 years ago I was unable to attend church in person regularly for quite some time due to serious health problems. I came to appreciate the lifeline of encouragement of church online. Its fellowship and support were greatly refreshing. I therefore jumped at the chance to be part of New Wine United online this summer. To be part of something that is intended to refresh God’s people in somewhat uncertain times is a great honour.”
Morning Celebrations will follow, with talks from Genelle Aldred (GA\C), KP Yohannan (Gospel For Asia), Lauren Windle (author, journalist & presenter),Jordan Seng (Bluewater Mission, Hawaii) & Rich Wilson (Fusion).
The New Wine summer gathering introduces more than 20,000 Christians to incredible charities and organisations working around the world to share the love of Jesus and make a difference locally, often in challenging and dangerous situations. The online event will profile many of these, allowing connections to organisations including Compassion, Christians Against Poverty, TLG, Parenting For Faith, IJM, Open Doors, World Vision, Missional Generation, SAT-7, Bible Society and more.
With over 100 churches signed up to be ‘Uniters’, United Breaks Out also aims to offer the same fellowship and connection they see across the campsite each summer. Churches and communities will host socially distanced ‘watch parties’, small group studies, testimony sharing, after hours entertainment, prayer ministry and more.
With free access to the entire 6-day programme from the New Wine website, everyone’s invited – and should come expectant and excited to see God equip and empower his Church for greater things.
