A few years ago, Graham Hall had a prophetic word for the then embryonic church plant in Lille; that of a man casting a net out from the shore and landing a good catch due to heavy weights on the leading edge of the net. God was calling us to be fishers of men as a team, not with rods, but working together to pull in the net, a net cast further by weighty, leading edge ministries to pack a punch for the Kingdom of God in Lille and beyond!
With divinely-generated momentum building in recent times here at CDG (Coeur de Grâce) Lille, it seemed the right timing to bring out the big guns for some promise inheriting times!
Stop press: ENOUGH prayers breakthrough!
We asked you in November last year for prayers for:
more solid French Christians to join us = a young couple and older couple have since joined us!
salvation breakthrough and baptism = we celebrated our first baptism this September and a week ago, a chap who has come from our street outreach gave his life to Jesus after coming for a few weeks and God catching his heart through a personal prophetic word!
stamina for the long-haul = we know God's sustaining goodness to us every day, keeping ourselves in the love of God to keep going in His strength!
So with that as a context, the tinder box was ready to be lit, and with around 40 gathering in Lille from the UK, Netherlands, Belgium and France (of course), we enjoyed a powerful time in the presence of God. Giving God glory in worship, encouraging Spirit-led contributions, foundational biblical teaching and inspirational faith-filled stories all led to powerful ministry times. Nobody left unchanged by God's moving among us.
It has been a game-changer of a weekend for us, a culture-setter, a bar-raiser. The CDGers have resolved to make living a supernatural life par for the course, as the Holy Spirit enables us to take ground, win hearts and make disciples for His fame and renown.
Rejoice with us and pursue supernatural Kingdom life where you are. Get Grantley and the gang into your context and prepare yourself to never look back as you pursue daily supernatural adventure in God!

CDG Lille were served at this conference by a team of volunteers who went to help facilitate the practicalities of the conference so that Roger and his team were more free to focus on the spiritual aspects. We have two more opportunities this year for you to get involved in supporting our pioneers in what God has put on their hearts. Click on the images below to find out more.
