Joint Cluster Time: Kingdom Measure

Dear friends,

We are excited to invite you as a leader from either the Freedom Hill or Acts Life cluster, to a joint Cluster Time in the United Kingdom taking place on the week of October 6-8, 2022. Our two clusters, being part of the COTN family, will gather together for a wonderful time of impartation and connection called ‘Kingdom Measure’.

We are truly expecting the Holy Spirit to meet with us in an extra ordinary way as we seek the Lord’s face and explore His ‘Kingdom Measure’. We believe this will also be a significant and precious opportunity to discover, strengthen and foster relationships and make new friends across the broader COTN family. This will help us to unite and build together as we advance His Kingdom.

This promises to be a wonderful and strategic time together and we look forward to seeing you there. So…don’t miss out.

With much love and every blessing,

David and Carol, Louis and Edna.

Changing Spectacles – Cluster time October 4th - 5th 2019

Having attended several of these amazing Acts Life Cluster times over the last few years, I was fully expectant of an amazing weekend for several reasons:

  • A sense of seriousness as well as family time
  • A time of building together on what has already been established over the last few years
  • Sharing of our own individual church family experiences of God's work amongst us
  • Imparting of vision for the Acts Life Cluster within COTN for the coming days
  • A time of relaxation, fun and getting to know each other in a deeper way - especially as we unwind and chat over delicious meals together
  • Seeking God's heart for us, as His people, and working towards it together

This Cluster weekend was no exception... in fact I found it the best yet, as we spent the time in an atmosphere of relationship and thankfulness for what God has been doing. Hearing John Scholtz speak about a Biblical Worldview was refreshing, because although I had heard about this before, John spoke from his heart and unpacked his perspective with such enthusiasm and passion. I've always found the topic of a Biblical worldview a challenging 'get-your-head-around-it' subject, but John left us with lots of food for thought and challenged each of us to chew over what a Biblical worldview means for us personally. For myself, I was challenged on how I look at things in regards to the Hebrew or Greek mindset and how that influences the way I view life. It gave me an explanation of why I see things in life the way I do.

A highlight for me was hearing feedback from Dave and Carol Cape from Walking the Way. They spoke of the incredible encounters they had as God brought people to them who were hungry to know more about Jesus, many giving their hearts to Him. What an amazing prophetic walk! There was so much blessing and still so much more to be revealed.

Another highlight is that the Cluster weekends are made up of a wide range of ages. From the young 20-30's, the 40-50's, and yes, even the 60-70's (us included!) - all working together, leaning forward with no barriers. To me, this is confirmation that the work of building God’s Kingdom is ongoing, all encompassing, and that, as Dave Cape once said to us, 'There is no retirement in God's Kingdom'! From youth to grey hairs there is always a place for us. A work to be done that needs ALL of our skills working together, and the Cluster weekend is certainly the place that confirms and affirms this for me.

It was such an amazing and blessed time!!!

God has your back!

"The Acts Life Cluster was a divine moment for my family. First, we are so grateful to be part of an amazing church fellowship. When we moved into the UK a little over a year, we did it by obedience to God’s perfect instruction and timing. But we needed His confirmation that Maidstone and Jubilee were the right places for us. In fact, deep in our hearts we already knew it, but we also knew that the people around us would be the next step of God’s confirmation. That’s how he works, confirming what he already said. We also had a chance to know a bit more about the foundation of COTN and the leadership’s vision for the church and its mission to transform society by spreading strong and powerful biblical principles and reshaping the way we see the world. That’s just an awesome confirmation that we are indeed at the right place and perfect timing. We have no doubts that God has great plans in store for our church family and trust me, Maidstone is only the start, we just need to be ready for it."

"We had a fantastic time away at the Acts Life Cluster. John and Jane Scholtz shared so powerfully and it was encouraging to see and hear all that God is doing amongst our Cluster. As John was sharing at the last session of the weekend, God reminded me of how we are called to make a difference and how important it is to have and apply His truth and principles in my own life in order to make a difference in other’s lives and in our wider community. All in all, a fab weekend and I felt privileged to be a part of it!"

Accelerating The Dream – Cluster time May 4th -7th 2018

Before I get into talking about the primary focus of the family time away, Rani and I must speak well of the Jubilee team along with their contribution to facilitate such an outstanding and inspiring time at the Acts Cluster time in Devon. The entire experience was really first class, from the venue to our accommodation, along with the hard work of the staff team at Sidholme Hotel, who attended to our needs with excellence.

The conference programme ran at an exceptionally profitable speed which allowed time for what we feel is the core ingredient of a memorable occasion, which is the ability to develop relationships with God and men. This article will not permit me the time to divulge all that took place during the weekend, but we are happy to report that the clans at the Acts Live Cluster are preparing for the release of the new sound, the new wine and the new move of the Holy Spirit. Many times during the weekend it felt like Father wanted to do something very special in and through His children. Many seemed to sense that something incredible is about to take place, not only in the spiritual realm or within the Acts Life Cluster, but within ministries, families, and people. Maybe we are beginning to understand that His timing is everything.

The scheduling of the sessions meant there was plenty of time to reflect, reveal, respond and be revitalised. The theme of this Cluster time was titled ‘Accelerating the Dream’. It seemed each speaker allowed the Spirit of God to create momentum for the following speaker, which generated a real foundation for our ability to hear and receive. Each song service seemed to touch the heart of God which allowed Him to touch our hearts in return, which in turn opened our ears to hear what the Spirit would say. We heard the call for the prophetic Word to come back to the body. We heard that Father wants to release the commissioning of the sons by the fathers. We heard that God wants to touch the 7 mountain mandate with His anointed vessels. The time has come to set a new sail as the Spirit is moving. Joshua Patterson during his session said, ‘to walk in the fullness of the cycle, you have to become a son’. That’s what we personally have received as the golden nugget of our time together. I encourage you to listen to the recordings of this Cluster time to find yours.

We enjoyed meeting new people and reconnecting with others. We ate with many, went to the beach with others, and enjoyed sharing stories with others. We got to know others in a deeper way. We went swimming with some, we laughed with some, we cried with some, washed the feet of some, but were ministered to and refreshed by everyone. The building of His church within Acts Life Cluster has been activated.
