The New Europe Weekend is an informal, relational conference aimed at encouraging and supporting those contemplating mission in another culture or pioneering situation. It has run for a number of years and originally focused on the former Eastern Bloc nations or 'New Europe'. Although this is still very much part of its DNA, New Europe could describe the wave of European nations that God is opening up to us at this time, through regular people willing to step out and become pioneers. These men and women are motivated by God’s heart for the nations and shaped by prophetic words and secured, supported and realised by being knitted in to apostolic family relationships.
Our heart for this conference is that you will be strengthened, encouraged and further spurred on to a life of adventure for Jesus, by being around likeminded people and worshiping the God of the nations, by personally receiving fresh prophetic direction and confirmation, and by developing and growing strong, vital relationships which will help sustain and support you into the future.
The NEW is for a broad range of people. You may be part of an existing church plant and already in a pioneering situation. Or you may feel you are at the beginning, contemplating dipping your toe in the water to find out what this could mean for you. Right now you could be unsure of how, where and when. You could be somewhere in between on this broad spectrum. Wherever you’re at, if talk about nations and cross-cultural mission grabs your attention and you find yourself dreaming and excitedly imagining the possibilities then we urge you to come. You are so welcome and we look forward to meeting you!
A major bonus of this particular event each year is it's local context. You are invited not only to attend a conference, but also to come directly into a pioneering situation in a European city, and to observe and experience first hand what this could look and feel like for you. This year we are delighted to be hosting the NEW in our new home Helsinki. Helsinki is the capital of Finland. It is a culturally diverse and cosmopolitan Scandinavian city. It is clean, stylish with excellent transport links and lots to see and enjoy. We hope that the city will provide a backdrop for us to have fun and build friendships together, as well as encounter God and share in His heart for Europe and the nations. We warmly invite you to be here and participate in all that God will do over the course of this time together.
We hope to see you there!
