We always have some wonderful guest speakers at Revive, alongside the founders of Ichthus Christian Fellowship, Roger and Faith Forster and the Ichthus Ministry Team. This year is no exception!!

Special Guests

Rachel Jordan-Wolf

We are also excited to be inviting Rachel Jordan-Wolf to come and speak at Revive on Sunday 30th June. Rachel spear-headed the ‘Talking Jesus’ research, which is the most significant Christian research this decade. ‘Talking Jesus’ 2022 showed that people’s openness to the gospel in the UK has dramatically increased in the UK since the Covid pandemic. We are looking forward to Rachel sharing on the research, and the impact for the UK Church and how we should mobilise in evangelism.

This session will feed nicely into our extended prayer time on Friday 4th August where we are praying for Revival in the UK and exciting Eater 2024 plans. More to be revealed soon…
