A time to look forward. After 30 some Albums and books Dale and David will pass the baton to a new generation for a new season, new wine, new revelation and with the worship leaders will lay hands on all who identify with their call to ‘lead the people to me’ which has been their mandate for 50 years.  We will also be hearing bi-lingual songs, chants, dance and haka to demonstrate the inclusive nature of where we believe the Holy Spirit is leading this nation and the nations of the Pacific.


There will be food trucks available on site on Saturday
