Event description


Join us at the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple for the final intensive of 2018.

Our intensives are not teaching-intensive, but encounter-intensive. You should expect to spend time engaging closely with God in your own heart and in the realms of heaven and to undergo a level of transformation which will prepare you for the next stage of your destiny to be fulfilled. This is not intended to be a ministry time, but an equipping.

In encountering God as He really is, we become aware that how we have thought about Him, about ourselves and about our way of life has at best been woefully inadequate and at worst completely mistaken. All that manmade DIY structure based on the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil needs to come down, and we must be careful not to simply replace it with another. In choosing to follow the pathway of the Tree of Life, we build our lives around an organic, flexible structure able to support a completely new paradigm.

In approaching this deconstruction and restoration we hope to look at:

  • Engaging the mind of God

  • Deconstruction of our consciousness frameworks

  • Renewing of minds, expanding our consciousness

  • Creating reality

  • Multi-dimensional living

  • Engaging Wisdom’s Heights

  • Engaging satan’s trophy room

Sessions will comprise a testimony-based introduction by Mike Parsons and/or others from the ekklesia at Freedom followed by an opportunity for you to engage for yourself. Time will be given for you to journal and reflect on your encounters, so please bring a notebook.

Each day will run from 9.30am to 10pm. Lunch will be provided (please notify us of special dietary requirements for anyone in your party when you book). There will be also be a break from around 5.30 to 7.30pm for you to obtain an evening meal (not provided). UPDATE: the venue will now remain open during this time each evening.

The Freedom Centre is a multi-use facility, and other users will be present elsewhere in the building during the daytime on all three days.

For further information including travel, local accommodation and parking restrictions at the venue, please scroll down to the FAQs

The introductory part of each session may be recorded, and digital files of all recordings will be made available to all ticketholders after the event free of charge for your personal use. We may also make them available to purchase from our website for others.

*Suitablilty and preparation

Teaching/experience level: intermediate plus.

We recommend this event for those who already have some experience of stepping into the realms of heaven and personal transformation and ideally have attended or worked through the material from the first three conferences in the Sons Arise series, available for purchase shortly after each event on our website.

Come prepared to lay down every preconceived notion you hold about life and God, as He directs.

For those who are with us on the Engaging God programme, it is suitable for those who are in Module 3 or beyond. For those new to these things, at this stage we suggest you consider signing up for Engaging God instead at www.freedomarc.org/freetrial

In making a booking you confirm that you have read and agree to the Event Terms and Conditions of Freedom Apostolic Ministries Limited.


This is a very popular holiday/vacation area, so we strongly advise you to book your accommodation as soon as possible. Prices rise rapidly if you leave it until closer to the date of your stay, and it can become increasingly difficult to find somewhere suitable even at this time of year. Please see below for advice on hotels and other places to stay.


Is Sons Arise just for men?

No, it’s for men and women! We don’t say ‘daughters’ because in the Hebrew tradition daughters did not obtain an inheritance. If men can be ‘the bride’ then certainly women can be sons.

Where is the event being held?

At our own building, The Freedom Centre, 1 Howard Avenue. Barnstaple, Devon EX32 8QA, UK (see map).
During intensives we will be using designated areas of the Centre but other parts of the building will be open to the public as usual.

What is the best way of getting there?

By road:

SatNav: enter our postcode: EX32 8QA

The Freedom Centre is situated on the eastern outskirts of Barnstaple.
Download or view directions here.

By rail:

There is a railway station in Barnstaple, about 10 minutes’ walk from the town centre (about 25 minutes’ walk from the Freedom Centre).

If coming from London, the fastest trains depart from Paddington station. There are also trains from London Waterloo, but these are much slower. Wherever your point of departure, you will need to change trains at Exeter St. David’s for the trip along the picturesque Tarka Line branch to Barnstaple.

On arrival at Barnstaple you will probably wish to take a bus or taxi (both available at the railway station) to your accommodation or to the Freedom Centre.

[Note: You may wish to take the train to Tiverton Parkway and travel the 37 miles from there to Barnstaple by taxi. It is advisable to book the taxi in advance. This will normally be faster than changing trains at Exeter St. David’s but is likely to be more expensive.]

By bus or coach:

The local bus and National Express coach station is in the centre of Barnstaple, 15 minutes’ walk from the Freedom Centre.

Can I park at the venue?

Parking at the Freedom Centre is limited and we can only offer spaces to individuals who are registered disabled and have notified us of their need for a parking space when purchasing their event ticket.

There are two small public pay-and-display car parks wthin a few minutes walk of the Freedom Centre:

  • Congram’s Close EX32 9AN and
  • Portmarsh Lane EX32 9HY.

For those staying in the recommended hotels (see below), the best option will be to leave your car there and come to the Centre on foot.

Is accommodation available nearby?

We have arranged favourable rates with local hotel chain Brend Hotels. Please note that these rates are only available when booking direct with Brend Hotels central reservations team using the phone numbers or email address provided, and not with the hotels themselves or online. Rates vary according to the time of year. The relevant information for this event can be viewed or downloaded below:

Their nearest hotel is The Park Hotel (4 stars), about 11 minutes walk from the Freedom Centre. The Imperial Hotel (4 stars) and The Royal and Fortescue Hotel (3 stars) are a few minutes further away, but closer to the town centre. The Barnstaple Hotel (3 stars) is on the opposite side of town. Breakfast is included in the rates quoted and all Brend hotels have restaurants for your evening meals if required.

You may wish to consider Barnstaple Premier Inn (3 stars, national budget chain) instead. This is on the eastern edge of town, also about 11 minutes walk away from the Freedom Centre. There is a pub-style restaurant attached.

We have had good reports of The Old Vicarage B&B www.oldvicaragebarnstaple.co.uk which is 10 minutes walk from the Freedom Centre. Or search for other local hotels, bed and breakfasts or camping and caravanning on the internet.

Barnstaple is in a popular holiday area, so please make sure you book your accommodation promptly.

What meals will be served at the event?
