Stirring a Hunger for Revival in the UK
The United Kingdom is ripe for revival. We have talked about it for years and prayed for its arrival. I believe the time is now and the season is ripe for God to move in the UK.
Who Am I?
My name is Owen Walton. I have been in full time Christian ministry for around 24 years, mostly based in the United Kingdom (apart from 2 years missions work in Africa).
I have spent a lot of that time teaching in Bible Schools across the UK and itinerating into churches, conferences and other meetings, as well as some time pastoring and other ministry activities.
God has always kept me focused on the UK, as I believe there is something He has planned for our country.
Why From These Shores?
From these Shores has been birthed from a stirring in my heart for revival in the UK.
Speaking about the United Kingdom, Smith Wigglesworth prophesied about a coming revival. I believe we are in the season for this prophecy to start being fulfilled.
The Time for Revival is Now. The Season is Ripe
I believe we are entering the time when the revival we have been talking about for many years is about to be unleashed in this nation.
From these Shores aims to bring like-minded Christians together to stir a passion for the move of God in our nation.
The Word and the Spirit
I believe this revival will be similar to previous revivals in some ways and different in others. One key feature will be an emphasise on both the Word of God and the move of the Spirit.
In his prophecy, Smith Wigglesworth spoke of the Word and the Spirit. The following excerpt should stir your heart about what God has planned for the UK:
‘When the Word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nations, and indeed the world, have ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years.
The Role of the United Kingdom
Smith Wigglesworth spoke of the UK’s role in this move of God.
‘The outpouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to mainland Europe, and from there, will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth’.
This page is about a coming together of those with a heart to see the Word of God and the Spirit of God sweep the United Kingdom like never before. The time is now.
This is not about one person or one ministry, but about a coming together. Wigglesworth’s prophecy spoke about this, ‘…there will be evidence in the churches of something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit.’
God has stirred my heart about raising the calibre of solid Word based teaching in the UK. Also, to raise up other teachers with a similar heart to my own for His Word. I will play my part and connect with others who stand united for this.
My desire is to see this nation saturated in the Word of God from coast to coast. From north to south and east to west, from the highest peaks of Scotland to the Cornish coast, from the Irish coast to the eastern English shores the flames of revival will spread.
As part of this, From these Shores will start regular teaching meetings around the UK. These will bring solid Word based teaching, as well as stir in people a desire for the move of God. From these, the flame of revival can spread. Some have already started and more will start soon.
