Saturday Programme

Young People, Creation Care and the Cosmic Ache

Venue:

Firewire

Time:

3:30pm

Our world is a bit broken. Young people are hyper-attuned to our climate crisis and the ways in which the good news of Jesus compels the church to respond in compelling and tangible ways. And, by engaging with the challenges of our climate context, we can help young people to be compelled by Jesus afresh.

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.

The Fight against Human Slavery

Venue:

Workshop Room 1

Time:

3:30pm

Human trafficking is one of the top global crises in our world today. According to the International Labour Organization, one million children worldwide are trapped in the darkness of sex trafficking and exploitation. By amplifying their voices, we can bring hope and freedom to the next child waiting for rescue.

In this workshop Brian Saipe will outline why scripture calls us to oppose this crisis, and shows how it operates in different cultures, and what is being done to rescue exploited children.

The workshop will provide opportunities for Q&A and discussion about raising awareness of the issues and ways to intervene practically, and spiritually.

The content will not be explicit, but strongly impacting. Attendees are encouraged to use their discretion. This workshop is unsuitable for children

Coaching and Convo Taster (For Leaders Only)

Venue:

Network Lounge

Time:

3:30pm

Coaching and Convo’s is New Wine’s online leaders network aimed at equipping church leaders in their roles and inspiring them to lead their people in increasingly fresh ways of the kingdom.

Some of New Wine’s best friends around the world are fantastic communicators, but behind that voice is a sharp insight and thoughtfulness. Our ah ha moment was when we realised that to gather our Aotearoa church leaders around these leaders is a true way of loving the church through her leaders. Coaching & Convo’s is invitation only for those in church leadership. It’s a zoom commitment every six weeks in addition to a retreat and other opportunities to connect throughout the year the cohort meets for.

Join us for this taster of the Coaching and Convo network with Mike Pilavachi.

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.
