Patti went to Peterborough for the weekend at the invitation of Veronica & Darryl Hewins. (They cooked the Indian meal at the Women's Day & Veronica shared her testimony.) Martin came too, as Andy had to work. We held a meeting in their church building for their Asian friends as well as some of the church. The presence of God was beautiful in the worship, led by Martin, and people were responsive to Patti's teaching on 'Hope'. We pray/prophesied over many at the end.
On Sunday we joined the church and were honoured to be asked by Pastor Claudia to pray for them as a church. Martin was led to ask to pray for Claudia and his wife, they were both moved on by the Holy Spirit as we spoke words of life over them. He invited others to receive prayer. He gave Martin his card and asked us to come back to take a church weekend.
We went to a Centre for homeless people in the afternoon, after their lunch, Martin led the 'Kitchen choir' in a couple of songs, then I spoke on being the friend of God and coming home to our real Father. I started by telling them how unique they are, and that no-one else had their fingerprints; one wag said, 'The Police do!' I'd wanted to start with a joke to relax them but couldn't think of one! We all laughed together. As I urged them to experience His love for themselves, the Holy Spirit was on each of them, there was a hushed stillness in the room. One girl responded for salvation, and as I laid hands on her, she staggered - there was a weight of God's presence there. Then I went round all of them, blessing them with the Father's love and goodness, only a few declined. Beautiful Jesus.

We apologise for being absent for so long! We have not been inactive, but rather, busier than before! We are also in process of updating the website, we praise God for the growth and increase we have experienced over the last 2 years. It is exciting, and sometimes scary! to be a part of something organic, not static, that is able to change as the Holy Spirit leads and as people move into new seasons in their lives.
We will have a new place on the site for associate ministries; some are people who have grown out from Restoration Blueprint, others are Kingdom connections. We celebrate every growth and expansion in God's Kingdom.
Andy & Patti are increasingly being looked to as spiritual mothers and fathers to various church groups in UK, Ireland and Malawi, all based on relationship, not titles.
Tim and Elaine are also in a new season. Tim now works in Plymouth, whilst still living at Sandford,  and Elaine has a limited company - 'fire to create' which uses her many creative skills in jewellery, ceramics, art & crafts to inspire adults and children, to learn and to create their own masterpieces!
More Exciting News! 
Godfrey Birtill will be with us in the Somerset/Bath area, for an Uproar of FAITH-HOPE-and-JOY-filled worship and prayer for the nation on Friday September 14th. venue to be arranged but BOOK the Date!
Next meeting at Sandford, Sunday June 24th, 3pm, we host James Hadfield, a modern day Smith Wigglesworth with a more colourful past and amazing testimony! He's a man on fire!

Joe & Laura Corry

-came to Newbury, Bath, Nailsea, Sandford & Bristol & as usual inspired, fired & made people merry! 2 people made Jesus Lord & encountered his amazing love for the first time, many were blessed & encouraged to press into their destiny.
In Newbury & Nailsea, Joe spoke on our authority, how we, the redeemed, are next in line only to God himself, with angels & demons below us in rank. He had verified words of knowledge for arthritis & Parkinson's, among other diseases, and Laura ministered powerfully in healing. He spoke to leaders on our need to have partners around us who we can trust, who will be with us & for us in the good times & the bad, who are not just along for the ride & their own advantage.
In Sandford he stirred us up to follow our dream. We are all the richer for them having been with us.

Women who change the World: broken hearts making History

Testimonies from the day: utterly fab Sat was. It was a wonderful event and I hope the start of more to come!! I absolutely loved praying for the ladies that came my way and seeing the miracles that God was doing for them. Thank you for putting me there. Iwas so nervous...but our God is amazing and it's him at work not me anyways! Lots of Love, God Bless,  LG

Thanks for a wonderful day; H & I felt like royalty! It was the special touches like the distinguished gentleman in his bow tie taking our coat, the nicely decorated tables, the area for ministry and chocolate! It was evident how much time you & your team had spent in blessing us. God spoke to H & I,  - me through Laura & H who could identify with Judi. We were touched by His love and are now full of FIRE!!!! looking forward to seeing you soon, AB

Thanks you so much for arranging the day. It truly was inspiring and challenging, to hear how our God in His mercy and grace can restore and set free anyone who willingly comes to Him with an open heart. I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to lead & guide you in the future. God bless you, Love in Jesus, JS

It has changed my life, I will never be the same. I felt like I was wearing an old coat - I was so comfortable & it 'fit' me - Judi who shared her moving, miraculous story of a transformed life.

I had a blessed time ministering at the women's conference after I shared my testimony! we prayed for ladies for over 3 hours, and the Lord moved in power. the other 2 speakers gave wonderful testimonies & the meal was gorgeous too. God is so good. The venue looked really beautiful, it was like a wedding with flowers, gems, silk hangings & ribbons etc so that all the ladies felt extra special. Laura M

Thank you so very much for organising, setting up and battling the faith muscles for us for the ladies' day in Nailsea. It was so encouraging to hear again how almighty our God is and that as we turn to Him, He smashes the enemy down again and again. Praise His name, and it was fun to see arms & legs comme into alignment. We saw a leg come into line on Sunday morning at the end of the service. So exciting when you actually see it move (people also felt movement & pain went) I'm sure my faith was stronger because of Saturday. Much love JB

You did a great job. I was telling them at the Way church this evening and all the ladies including the pastor's wife want to come next time. thank you so much from Darryl & me for having us and giving me the opportunity to do what I always dreamed of doing, that is preaching and cooking. Everything was fantastic, who knows where God will take us next. I think it was so amazing. Love and God bless, Veronica

Thank you for your prayers for the immediate shock & trauma - that went immediately! Praise God. I had been curious why God wanted me there, but B's (husband) friend visited our house (never normally happens) and asked me what I thought about spiritualism and mediums! His mother had been caught up in this for a great many years and his Christian wife felt very uncomfortable around her and the people she associates with. One of these makes predictions on matters they were considering which left them both with a chilled feeling. we had a very interesting chat about Jesus being the light and the importance of not being enticed into these areas of darkness - meanwhile B was getting redder and shaking his head vigorously as he does not believe in the existence of Jesus or the devil. I think it might well open up more conversations in the future. Yes, I was meant to learn about all that stuff - thank you Patti for a marvellous day. hope to see you again soon, LC  

I had a wonderful time on saturday. God healed tendonitus in my right arm, also I had been going through quite a bad time health wise generally for the last few months, which in turn had affected my finances, and my emotional/mental health. I had recently had a serious go at God, I blame Him for allowing me to be ill/not healing me more quickly. I was getting out of the depression -I find that depression is often connected quite closely with anger - and booked my day with you. I was still struggling to imagine a hope and a future, despite what it says in Jeremiah 29:11, so when I came on Saturday I was looking for a gleam of light. I asked God for a word and the person that prayed got 3 pictures. I do have a clearer picture of what I'm meant to do, if it comes about it will all be Him, as my circumstances do not lend themselves to the 'vision'. Thanks also for the dancing, you may have spotted me practcing what I have learned of Turkish belly dancing and the lovely curry. send my compliments to those involved  MH

A Prophecy for the UK

Given to Jim Edwards Nov 30th 2011.
The hunble and servant hearted who listen out for My voice and direction shall rise up in these days that are coming and do mighty exploits. They shall be as bold as lions and through them I will perform signs and wonders that will shake this nation to its core. They will not be done in secret or in a side street, but in the blazing glare of all.
There is a mighty tidal wave coming that is already gaining momentum as it sweeps this earth. The blood of the martyrs in your land and the countries of Europe is not pleading 'vengeance', but 'Marcy!' as are the voices around the throne before Me. As a God of Mercy, can I not heed their cry?
There will be many naysayers come, even using My name. Do not even give them the time of day. I will visit this land of yours (UK) and greater will be the latter glory of My house established in your midst, than any former.
Your children will go to the furthest corners of your continent performing signs and wonders that will bring much glory to My Son Jesus, and win many nations to Me, from the lowest tramp in the gutter, to Kings and Princes. Your land is a springboard for reaching many countries and nations.
But many who are building their empires using My Name, will despise and miss this wave as it comes. Great, and public will be their shame and humiliation. Those who are too hard-hearted or possessed by unbelief - I will pass by. 
But your sons and your daughters - your 'delicate ones' will trample sickness, disease and demonic attack. I will be a mighty sword in their mouths and the lies of cancer, freemasonry and Islam will be seen to publicly bow the knee to the name of Jesus.
I shall have a bride for My Son, and she shall be glorious, out of every tribe and every nation.
Governments and people in 'high places', influential people who speak against the Kingdom that I am building will be rapidly cast down and will not be heard of again. They will be replaced by men and women who search out My wisdom, My ways and lean on Me, and are quick to respond to My voice.
Have no fear of anything, but that you will miss out in that day through your own pride or foolishness.
Has not ALL power and authority on the earth been given to My Son? Pray His prayer, that My Kingdom come and My will be done in your midst as it is in heaven.
I will bring humble men and women from distant places, who are mighty in Me. And I am raising up those in your midst already. They will captivate a generation, in a moment, with the ways of the Kingdom of heaven.
A fatherless generation that has rings in their noses will I draw unto Me. I will put a noose through their rings and draw them unto Me, and they will know great intimacy, fun, laughter and healing as they know Me and learn what it is to have a father. And those that tattoo themselves - I will tattoo My name on their hearts and they will acknowledge no other Lord.
But you of this present generation - will you prepare yourself for this move of Mine? Will you begin the outreach process, reaching to those outcast and neglected? Will you build relationships and foundations for churches to care for and minister to this huge influx of people when it comes?
You see pictures of Reinhard Bonnke's crusades in Africa and wish that this could happen here. More than this you will see for your population is much higher, and I want no-one to be lost. For My Son when He is lifted high will draw All men unto Me.
People will knock on your door to learn the way of salvation, but will you close the door because of the time of day and the inconvenience, or will you lead them in the sinner's prayer?
'Prepare ye the way of the Lord'.

Great Britain turns back to God!

There is a return to love & respect for the Royal family, prophetic of a return to love & respect for the King of kings. The Queen had a very successful year - the wedding of William & Kate spoke of marriage being held in honour again, after previous Royal divorces and resulting loss of respect; the Queen's visit to Ireland won the hearts of the people as she honoured them by dressing in green speaking in Irish and bowing her head at the memorial to those killed in conflict with - Britain. She identified with them and they showed their appreciation.. 
There is a revival of celebration associated with the Union Jack; it has become popular again, not just with tourists!
David Cameron has been quoted as saying that Britain is a Christian Nation! He made a strong stand in the EU recently to protect Britain's best interests, despite media protest and accusation.
The Christian Institute has won several significant legal battles, standing for Christian freedom of expression and conscience.
Over Christmas there have been significantly Christian events on TV. The Christmas Day Big Sing saw a packed Royal Albert Hall resounding with God's praise with some cracking Revival hymns being proclaimed across the Nation!
The Queen's speech was overtly Christian, Gospel even! No politically correct apologetic watering down this year!
A National newspaper, The Telegraph, printed a full page article on reasons for hope in the Nation! This reminded me of a recent prophecy - 'Good News in the media'! We're seeing it! What we've longed for is happening! The tide has turned, the pendulum is swinging the other way.
Britain will be saved.
