The ultimate expression of love, according to the scripture, is not sex but sacrifice. This workshop will consider issues around sex, friendship and sacrifice.

Mike Pilavachi

mike pilavachi

His name alone sets us all a-flutter. We’re ecstatic to have Mike back to his New Wine NZ family to impart his wisdom and unique brand of humour. Storyteller, scholar, passionate follower of Jesus – Mike will get us thinking, crying and pressing into God’s heart. He’s an MBE recipient (wowzas), leader of Soul Survivor Watford, international speaker and author who is passionate about church being family and wants to encourage all to live naturally supernatural lives.
In his previous life he was an accountant who could never quite balance the books but now he travels the world sharing his passions for Jesus – and his terrible jokes. At home he loves to sit in his garden, watch his grapevines grow and cook Greek feasts. 

Check out this video for the story of Soul Survivor festivals which Mike led for its duration from 1993 – 2019.

Books by Mike Pilavachi, Charlie & Anita Cleverly, and more are available at Manna Bookstore in the Marketplace.

Faithful Grandparents

Venue:

Cutting Edge

Time:

2:00pm

There has never been a more important—or difficult—time to find meaningful and acceptable ways of passing on faith from one generation to the next. Grandparents have a role to play here, with its privilege and responsibility, and they can be the vital link between a lived-out gospel and the faith of a younger generation. Today’s grandparents have arguably lived through the most far reaching ethical and moral upheaval society has ever witnessed. We’ll talk together about the challenges faced by grandparents, and different ways of meeting them.

Charlie & Anita Cleverly

We’re absolutely stoked to have Charlie and Anita joining us from Oxford, UK. After leading St Aldate’s church for 18 years they embraced a call from God to support leaders all around the world including lucky us here in New Zealand. A hallmark of their ministry is that church should be a house of prayer for all nations; we’re sure it’s this that’s wooed them to us, not just our incredible wine. They have authored several books, including ‘Faithful Grandparents’, ‘Deep Night, Bright Morning’, ‘The Song of Songs’ and ‘The Discipline of Intimacy’. Their books and their ministry remind us that nobody goes entirely untouched by hurt, grief, or pain but that these times of lament can guide people toward the light and love of Christ. Charlie and Anita are passionate about seeing believers pursuing God and His calling on their lives. We’re excited to have this powerhouse couple at New Wine 2023 – and can’t wait to see how God will use them to speak into the lives of His people here in Aotearoa.

Confidence in the Gospels – How we know the New Testament is Based on eye-witness testimony

Venue:

Workshop Room 1

Time:

2:00pm

The Gospels are our primary source of information about Jesus’ life. But can we have confidence in their historical reliability? The answer is, YES! One aspect of good historical writing is its dependence on eye-witness testimony. In this workshop, Martyn will demonstrate how the text of the Gospels provides evidence that their sources were people who had a personal experience of Jesus. Interactive and with worked examples, this workshop will increase your confidence in the New Testament as a whole and equip you for conversations with people where you can defend the Christian faith. The content of this workshop is the first part of a larger course which Martyn is developing to equip Christians with confidence in the historical credibility of the New Testament.

Pepeha for Pākehā

Venue:

Workshop Room 2

Time:

2:00pm

There has been a huge growth in engagement with Te Ao Māori and Te Reo Māori over the past decade, which presents the Church with challenges and opportunities. This workshop will help pākeā to engage with how to locate themselves in Te Ao Māori and Gods mission for Aotearoa. James will draw on his own experiences of engaging with Te Reo Māori, Te Ao Māori to help others navigate the Church’s bi-cultural mission.

James Beck

James Beck

James Beck has been part of New Wine for so long now that we’ve discovered his secret… he doesn’t actually age! Mysterious. These days he is the associate pastor at The River Ōpāwaho Church, he also supports the flourishing of the gospel in Aotearoa through his work with the Wilberforce Foundation. You may have caught him on radio, TV or even read one of his many articles or his (very funny) children’s book, Eliza Loves Rocks.

Anyone who’s heard James speak will remember him for his unique sense of humour, which he credits his rural upbringing for. It has been a key to helping him connect with people from all walks of life. James is passionate about discipleship and making the Bible make sense to people from all walks of life. When he isn’t working, James is hanging out with his wife, Rebekah, and their girls, Eliza, Tilly and Freddie.

Church leaders: The Things We Tell Young Leaders (For Leaders Only)

Venue:

Network Lounge

Time:

2:00pm

We’ve asked Bishops Steve and Justin to share some of their thoughts on raising leaders in this day. Leadership is more fractured, fraught and feared than ever before, so much so that the tide has turned regarding those who are stepping up. This workshop will look at the lessons of our day, strategies and stories of hope.

Steve Maina

Steve immigrated to New Zealand from Kenya over a decade ago, on arrival he took up a post as head of the New Zealand Church Missionary Society, before being ordained as Bishop of the Diocese of Nelson (a third-generation bishop!). Steve brings a down-to-earth message which remains the same no matter what field he serves in.

“We are to share the good news in whatever form or shape it takes… the Lord Jesus Christ has come and died for us and been raised up again to give us life in abundance. That is the message.”

He’s coming to New Wine with his equally inspiring wife, Watiri, so join us for New Wine 2023 to see them both!

Justin Duckworth

Justin is familiar feet on the New Wine stomping ground (quite literally!). His message of community and connection speaks straight to the heart of New Wine DNA and we’re richer for having Justin in the whānau. That shared passion for equipping and encouraging the people of God and working together for a better world has also been a hallmark of Justin’s work with youth and community over the past 20 years. He’s pioneered many impactful projects, and along with his wife Jenny, founded Urban Vision. Justin hails from Lower Hutt, has dreadlocks, usually wears shorts and bare feet and has a life focus on serving the poor. If you want to hear more – you know what to do! Join us at New Wine 2023!
