Introduction

Delegates and their families turned up to the concert night with their t-shirts, dancing shoes, and hearts full of gratitude and appreciation to God. After a challenging year that put a damper on how we were allowed to worship God in church, the New Wine Church family were finally able to praise God together unreservedly - without restraint and inhibitions. On His part, the God of heaven, the earth and all of creation, responded by blessing us with His presence, joy, hope, peace, healing, grace, glory, and power.

Anointed Prayer and Worship

The evening began with an opening prayer by Minister Gerald and then an infomercial, sensitising us to the benefits of God's grace. The anointed Sounds of New Wine then led us in a powerful time of praise and worship, with songs centred around the grace of God. Throughout the evening, Sounds of New Wine led us in multiple rounds of worship until the very end, where we sang ‘My Worship’, by Phil Thompson.

After another infomercial on the grace and wisdom of God, we were also blessed with the beautiful ministry of Word in Motion - our Performing Arts ministers.

Next, the talented Sounds of New Wine Youth ministry led us in a time of praise and worship. They started their segment with their original song "Good Father". They also sang “The Anthem” (What God cannot do, does not exist) by Dunsin Oyekan, and "Jireh" by Elevation Worship and Maverick City Music.

Powerful Word

Later on, Pastor Kola briefly encouraged us from Psalm 22, before handing over to our guest speaker, Pastor Arno Van Der Knaap of the “God Centre” in the Netherlands. Pastor Arno passionately shared his emotional journey to repentance and encouraged everyone to make a commitment to live and walk with God. He shared how God saved him from a criminal path of gambling and drugs, and transformed him into the man of God he is today. Some attendees, including some young people, responded to the call and accepted Jesus into their lives. Pastor Arno ended the evening with prayer and encouraged people to give to the ministry of New Wine Church.
