Ignite is a unique opportunity to come together for two days of teaching, refreshing and fellowship focussed on loving Jesus, loving others, serving the world; a great time to thank God for all that He has done and ask Him to re-ignite the fire of the Holy Spirit amongst us.
Speaker – Jackie Pullinger will be speaking on the subject: Healing your past; releasing your future. The focus of the weekend will be Training in how to pray for freedom from past sins, hurts or inheritance and to be released into God’s plan for your future. In May 2015 and 2017 Jackie led amazing Ignite weekends with us and we are delighted to welcome her back. Originally a classical musician from Surrey, she went to Hong Kong as a young woman and started sharing the love of Jesus Christ with gangsters, addicts, prostitutes, street sleepers and prisoners – as well as middle class students and expatriates. She began to see heroin addicts set free from drugs without the usual withdrawal symptoms through the healing power of the Holy Spirit and praying in tongues. Most went on to live new lives in Christ and many have gone to other countries in Asia to share what Jesus has done.
She has been awarded an MBE and an honorary doctorate. Her books Chasing the Dragon and Crack in the Wall have been read by thousands all over the world. Jackie has also been a major influence in the church in the UK: Archbishop Justin Welby’s recent biography notes that Jackie’s portrayal of the Spirit-filled life has had a “profound influence’ on him.
