Guest Post: A pioneering woman, pt 1

A pioneering woman, pt 1 By Claire Musters Wendy Virgo has always had a pioneering spirit. She married Terry in 1968 and they moved to a small town on the south coast called Seaford. At that stage, they had no idea that eventually the work that began there would spread to hundreds of churches in 60 nations around the world. I had the privilege of interviewing Wendy Virgo in the run up to the last Newfrontiers International Brighton Leaders’ Conference. I asked her about various different points i … [Read more...]

TOAM Session 4 David Stroud on the future of UK Newfrontiers

David Stroud explained that he would not be preaching as such this session but instead sharing his heart for the future of Newfrontiers here in the UK. You can download the audio or read my notes here:He began by saying how grateful he was to be part of this family of churches. We left churches because of nostalgia. So we don’t want to do that. But, there is a difference between nostalgia and gratitude. He explained that he went to one week at the Downs Bible week had totally changed his l … [Read more...]

TOAM: Interview with Nigel Ring

Nigel Ring is a great hero of mine. I love the way he has faithfully served the ministry of Newfrontiers for decades. He has been so loyal, so humble, and so willing to lay his life down that the ministry of others might develop to the full potential. He has personally run every Downs, Stoneleigh and Together On A Mission event. No wonder Terry Virgo dedicated his new book Spirit-Filled Church to this man. But as I point out at the beginning of this interview, he did steal away my favorite … [Read more...]

Terry Virgo on the future of Newfrontiers, transition, but not retiring just yet

Adrian: So here’s the thing, you look at all of that, it’s all going fantastic. And there are points along the line where there’s been these transitional moments. Like Downs comes then you stop it. Then you have an advance. Stoneleigh comes along and 10 years in you stop it and advance. Now the Brighton conference, and thats now coming to an end. This is the last Brighton conference. But there’s other changes as well. But why would you kind of mess it up? When actually it’s worked so well? You an … [Read more...]

Terry Virgo on keeping humble when God blesses you and Newfrontiers

Adrian: Now I would like to take you right back actually... but sort of partly on route to that, my mum said something interesting today. It was through them, because I was very young, back in around 1978 when I met you first. And she said something really interesting. She said, ‘Back then it was just a tiny handful of people’. I think you were pastoring a church in Seaford and I think Haywards Heath was the very first church you’ve travelled to, if I remember correctly. There we were, a bunch of … [Read more...]

What Kind of House? Apostles, their delegates, multiculturalism, prayer, worship, & mission

This is the second part of a set of notes on Terry Virgo's first session at 300 Leaders.  I have previously shared the video and downloads for the whole talk.3. There was Barnabus. He had been sent. The Apostles were staying in Jerusalem. People have written about whether that was right or wrong. But they heard about another church coming to birth. Barnabas was sent as an apostolic delegate. He was known by the Apostles, and he represented them. It was rather like Timothy later on. … [Read more...]

Why I am excited about The Spirit Filled Church

My headache is getting better. I thought I would share with you tonight the video of me speaking about Terry Virgo's new book. This was me speaking to Newfrontiers leaders at Prayer and Fasting.
