Each year we go to New Wine United in the summer and every year we encounter God in a way that impacts our community in Wigan. This year you can join in without even needing to leave your sofa or pitch a tent! New Wine United will be available on YouTube each day for free and we will be gathering as a community on Zoom at 9.15pm to share stories of how God has spoken to us during the day. We encourage you to get creative and recreate the New Wine experience at home – if you really miss camping why not pitch up in your garden or living room!

New Wine – United Breaks Out
30 July – 3 August 2020
New Wine will be gathering the family together online this summer.
They have been working closely with inclusion teams to ensure the event is as accessible as possible.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll be able to enjoy, for free, from your sofa, a tent in your garden, your local park or even your bed!
In the mornings, Bible Teaching will be led by Pete Hughes and Bishop Jill Duff.
Pete leads KXC, which has been described as ‘one of London’s most innovative churches’. His recent book All Things New is about God’s relentless passion to redeem lives, heal the nations, rewire the culture & bring renewal to all of creation.
Bishop of Lancaster Jill Duff will be speaking in Impact, the urban venue, on Friday, Saturday and Monday mornings. As bishop, she oversees mission, evangelism & church planting in the Diocese of Blackburn. Previously she was the founding director of St Mellitus College North West and served as an urban parish priest, school chaplain & pioneer minister.
Evening sessions will be led by a different guest speaker each night. Confirmed so far are Miriam Swanson of Fusion, Gary Haugen of IJM, leadership coach Jo Saxton (pictured), author, speaker & advocate Danielle Strickland, Chris Lane of St Mellitus North West and New Wine National Leader Paul Harcourt.
Each afternoon will be TED-style seminars led by experts in topics that are relevant and important at this time: grief, loss & lament; Holy Spirit ministry; leading in changing times; race; mental health & well-being; apologetics; creation care; parenting; and prayer. These will be followed by sofa sessions, Q&As & webinars for further discussion and questions.
Each morning at New Wine Kids: Space Agency, 0-11s & their families will encounter God through songs, challenges, stories, teaching & gunge! In the afternoons, join Stomping Ground live for fun, games, challenges & general craziness. New for 2020 is an Augmented Reality App packed with stories, games, crafts, activities, prayer & worship.
Luminosity is an exciting programme for 11-18s including breakfast time devotions and chat; challenges; afternoon workshops on mental health & anxiety, evangelism, apologetics, calling, leadership, social media & the world we could create; Evening Celebrations with high energy worship & guest speakers; and After Parties.

Members of the New Wine Leadership Network will be able to access a programme of 1-2-1 prayer slots, mission consultations & international gatherings via Zoom as well as discussions with special guests about ‘What’s next for the local church?’, ‘Leading & well-being’ and ‘Mission & planting’.
Throughout the event you can browse our online Resource Venue where you’ll find St Andrew’s Bookshop and other shops including Christian Gift Co and Wee Sparrow, and opportunities to connect with Christian organisations including BRF, CAP, Open Doors and Hope for Justice. Using our interactive map you can also access charity experiences from Mercy Ships, MedAir, Compassion and MAF.
Over 300 people have volunteered to be United Breaks Out Community Makers, tasked with modelling the same fellowship and connection in homes and communities that is seen across the campsite each summer.
