School 3 of PTC.NW 2017 was an outstanding School! The delegates were responsive, interactive, ready and able to enter into all the practical sessions with expectancy. And God worked mightily through those sessions particularly – there was so much life and joy and blessing through each activity! The content of School 3 is so rich, and we had strong teaching with each teacher, in their own style, bringing LIFE! We looked at the connection of prophecy and revival in the Bible and in church history; and the tools and authority we have for ministry. It was good prophetic teaching and we were equipped and blessed. One delegate said he had been overwhelmed by the teaching and his heart, mind and soul had been lifted and renewed to a new level. The worship had a strong prophetic anointing – in the morning and evening worship times and also as activities during sessions – the Holy Spirit took us to new heights and released prophetic songs in many of us. It was glorious! Delegates said, and demonstrated, that they had been released into their ministries. We went out rejoicing, in power, putting our call above the circumstances, with precious words or pictures from the Lord to encourage and further envision us for His glory and the furtherance of His Kingdom – wherever He places us. What a God! Thank you Jesus!
We hold monthly Teaching Mornings which are designed for people who are studying the Bible using The Way of the Spirit Courses, but they are open to all. We welcome mature Christians, new believers and those wanting to ‘investigate’ God. We meet on the 1st Saturday of the month (occasionally it is the 2nd) from 10am to 1pm and some stay to eat lunch together. The anointing on the worship and on the teaching is increasing and the Lord is doing great things amongst us – people are being set free, lives changed and physically healed. Don’t miss out – make these Teaching Mornings a priority!
The summer series is entitled: Live according to the Spirit !
Paul tells us to do that in Romans 8.4 and we need to keep hearing it and meditating on it. Living in the reality of being alive with Christ (Eph 2.5); as sons of God (Gal 3.26); co-heirs with Christ (Rom 8.17); living as children of light (Eph 5.8); keeping in step with the Spirit (Gal 5.25) is all our inheritance in Christ! And knowing the truth of that will set us free to live in the good of it. Amen? In this series we are looking at the practicalities of how we live according to the Spirit in our daily lives. On July 1 we will be considering Listening to the Spirit – How do we hear God? God does speak to us today through His Word, directly by His Spirit, in dreams and pictures, through one another…. And we can hear Him, Jesus said: ‘My sheep hear My voice’, but sometimes we need help in recognising that it is His voice. This is such an important, helpful subject, do come along on Saturday to learn and share and be built up in the Spirit for your own edification and the furtherance of His Kingdom.

The on-going vision for The Way of the Spirit, Wirral is that we reach people across the Wirral and beyond to:
1. Come to the Teaching Mornings to be edified and strengthened in the Lord by
– hearing accurate Bible teaching illuminated by the Holy Spirit
– sharing with others delight in the Lord and His Word
– applying the truths of the Bible to everyday lives
2. Join a study group for the main course or a short course. It is such a delight to see people reading the Bible systematically and receiving revelation for themselves by the Holy Spirit; to see them being set free by the truth; getting to know God more fully; and growing in the knowledge of who they are in Christ.
3. Enable us to go out into our churches, homes, workplaces, neighbourhoods in strength, confidence and freedom, equipped to live life to the full and to be effective ambassadors for Christ and ministers of the Gospel.
“Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured, just as it was with you.” (2Thess.3.1)
