Hear our Stories

We love to tell stories of the things we have done, from the successes to the failures. They are all a part of our journey.

“The Mother House is a great place to be inspired, challenged and to dream of what we can do in our mission work”​

Ian Mother House Participant

"As a relative newbie to The Mother House its been wonderfully encouraging and inspiring to see how God is at work in new ways. Its great to see people coming together to support each other and to share the stories of them stepping up in new and exciting ways to bring God's love to people. I love to hear about peoples dreams, and the visions that God is placing on their hearts as well as the nitty gritty of how its actually going in practice. I was invited to The Mother House because of my involvement with Church on the Street, a local project in Great Lumley which grew out of sense of call from God to continue to worship publicly through lockdown."

Kathy Mother House Participant

“The Mother House has been a safe space to share the highs and lows of ministry, as well as to process how to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the last few years.”​

Aaron Mother House Participant

“The Mother House is a thin place in which the Spirit draws near and allows us to glimpse the kingdom at work in the world. It is a breeding ground for spiritual innovators, entrepreneurs, servants and leaders. It is home.”​
