New Wine summer festivals are all about communities coming together, getting to know one another, laughing, worshipping, becoming equipped for the year ahead where we seek to see God’s kingdom in everyday lives.
They’re quite simply uplifting and give us as individuals, families and communities space to deepen our understanding of what an authentic kiwi Christian life really looks like. [more info]
