Alan Kelly – Is God Moving in Your Life?

God is on the the move. From the beginning of creation to the coming back of Christ, we believe His plans and purposes are unfolding.
But is God moving in you? What would your life look like if God started moving in you and through you to fulfil his purposes?Are you desperate to see God  move in your life  or reluctant?
Listen in to find out what to expect,  how to embrace and why you should say “ yes” to  a move of God in your life.

Dear Church, we are overwhelmed by your love and responses for the upcoming LIFT event. We believe God is changing the generation of teens in Dunfermline. Scotland really is a mission field. Less than 7% of people go to the church in Scotland and this is why we need to step out in faith. God will open the floodgates of heaven, and I see this starting in our church because of your faith and commitment to this event. Compared to last year we  have over 60 volunteers! And the majority is from the Vine! People are making food, are in security, ticketing, praying, response or other teams. Also I know there are a lot of people gave a donation towards the event. This tells me that The Vine Church is an amazing family with a deep hunger for reaching the lost for Jesus Christ. On Sunday evening we have a worship night where we want to pray over the rooftops of the building and ask for a blessing over the project. Please come, pray and worship with us!  

A huge thank you from Alko & Miriam” 

This prayer & worship night is the last one of 7 prayer nights for the LIFT week.

We want to pray that the “Jericho” walls between local churches will fall down and every wall that’s preventing kids to know Jesus in this week of mission in Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Kelty and Cowdenbeath.

Please invite everyone you know to this event and stand with us in prayer.


Dancing From Prayer

I immediately, during my prayer time, picked up my phone, tears of conviction in my eyes and searched: “dance classes in Dunfermline.” I booked my wife and I into those classes in Townhill community centre, arranged a babysitter and text my wife to tell her. And all this from a spiritual practice called the Daily Examen.

‘Historic’ Christian event brings together 140,000 youth — and Brazil’s president

“The outpouring of healing, miracles, signs and wonders was mindblowing, the display of God’s power in all three stadiums,” Byrd, leader of Youth With a Mission (YWAM), said. “This whole event was about the exultation of Jesus and the empowerment of the 24-year-old, equipping the next generation to change the world.”

Hayashi, founder of the Dunamis Movement (a university ministry) and pastor of Zion Church in Sao Paulo, said the strong emphasis on social justice – reaching college campuses and high schools, as well as adoption of vulnerable children and teenagers – struck a chord with the nation.”

It’s one thing to know Scripture—it’s another thing to live it out. As leaders we know the two greatest commandments by heart: Love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and love our neighbors as ourselves.

In a time when our world is skeptical and even fearful of the people around us, how can we help people truly love their neighbors as Scripture commands us to?

In the new series 12 Neighbors, people share their experiences and unique insights that will help you think differently about what it means to love others and inspire change in your community. You’ll also learn five practical ways to implement their relational advice to love your neighbors.
