Releasing the Holy Spirit

A conference to learn how we can bring more love and more power to the people of the city that we love by doing what Jesus did. We are delighted to welcome some great speakers who are passionate about seeing those who love Jesus being equipped to minister in the power of God. It will be a conference where we will not let our own agenda get in the way, by waiting on the Holy Spirit to move. If you are hungry for more of God, want to be better equipped to move in His presence, and are prepared to take a risk and pray for people on the streets, then we think that you will love this conference.

Going onto the streets is not compulsory, but if you want to learn to do what Jesus taught, then we want to help train you.

Brighton is unique to anywhere in the UK, and is one of the most artistic and vibrant cities in the country. It is full of people from every culture and language, attracting over 12 million visitors each year. We believe that the majority of people living in and visiting the UK have never experienced the presence of God. We want, in the coming years, to change that. We would love conferences, like ours, to lead the way in changing the culture of how church works.

We are looking forward to sharing a Spirit filled, life changing, empowered weekend with you.

Robby Dawkins

Robby is one of the best known international speakers in the Vineyard. He is married to Angie and has six boys. He is a fifth generation pastor, born to missionary parents in Japan. Robby has grown up in the church, serving, initially, as a youth pastor in churches ranging between 50 and 14,000 people. Against everyone’s advice, he planted a successful church in downtown Aurora, Illinois (Chicago). It was an area known for its high crime rate and social problems. Robby and Angie built and led a church evangelistically. They went onto the streets, seeing gang members, prostitutes, and drug addicts, as well as white collar middle class people meet Jesus powerfully and join their church. Robby discovered that as they went out, the Spirit of God would go with them, turning up in power, healing, and delivering people. They were given supernatural intervention and help to advance God’s message. The church was such a success in reaching the unreachable, as far as their secular city administration was concerned, that the mayor of Aurora, along with the chief of police, bestowed an acknowledgment upon Robby and the Vineyard, that he and his church had made a significant difference in Aurora’s crime rate reduction.

Robby recently handed oversight of the church in order to focus on international speaking and ministry, with a passion to equip the wider Body of Christ to action. His aim is to equip Christians to realise their potential and calling, and use his prophetic voice to stir the church to being the radical church Jesus intends it to be. He has appeared in several recent movies with Darren Wilson, such as Father of Lights and Holy Ghost Reborn, and has written two books, Identity Theft and Do what Jesus Did.

If you haven’t heard Robby speak or minister you are in for a real treat.

Steve Barber

Steve is married to Juliet and they have two, almost, grown up children, Joel and Emma. 

Steve planted one of the first Vineyard churches in the UK in Southend Essex in 1992, where he met Juliet, who came to Christ as the church was planted.  About eight years ago they established a new church in Leicester, which is thriving and growing, as week after week they see people meeting Jesus in their services.

Steve and Juliet have served on the council of Vineyard churches in the UK, almost from its inception, supporting and overseeing the role of church planting development in the UK.  They are in a great season as a church, as they move forward into the next stage of church development.  They firmly believe they are called to help oversee and equip young leaders in the forthcoming move of God, and want, passionately, to see God’s kingdom extended with signs and wonders.

They have both known Chris, the pastor of Brighton Vineyard, for nearly thirty years, and come with a wealth of wisdom and experience.

They are excited about this conference and what the future holds for all of us.
