At the heart of De Vere Beaumont Estate, just South of Windsor sits an 18th Century mansion house and hotel, and it was here that our joint Cluster weekend took place this October.
Jubilee Church are part of the ‘Acts Life’ Cluster, overseen by Dave and Carol Cape. This year we joined with some of the ‘Freedom Hill’ Cluster, overseen by Louis and Edna Els, for a combined time of fellowship, relationship building and inspiring impartation under the theme of ‘Show Me The Way’. It was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with old friends and begin to build and develop new friendships with leaders from other churches within the Church of the Nations family.
“The cluster weekend was a fantastic weekend away connecting and going deeper with old and new friends. It was a very powerful time pressing into God and one of the things God reminded us about was the power of communion. That we have a seat at the table but the enemy does not and we stand in victory in all He has done for us.”

Spread over a full weekend we tasted a rich diet of teachings including sessions on The Five Pillars of the Church, by Louis du Piesane, ‘Acceleration From a Place of Pain’, by our very own Dan Maudhub, ‘Living with a Holy Discontent’, delivered by Neil Pattison, ‘Living in The Wide Open Spaces’ by Edna Els and ‘The Lords Table’, shared by Louis Els. Although the sessions were only 20 minutes long, each one contained enough meat to feast upon for a week and I have to say I am taking my time now to read through my notes and properly digest what was given!
These sessions are available for download (thanks so much to Lee Collier for making this possible) and I highly recommend them to you – you’re in for a real treat. To get access to the audio sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
“It was a privilege to be at the cluster weekend. God’s presence was tangible from the moment we arrived. We were inspired by each speaker, particularly to guard our hearts and allow ourselves to enter the fullness of His presence. Dan M had a picture of a cracked egg that was made whole, and that summed up the weekend for me!”

Alongside the sessions we had the opportunity to go on a tour of Windsor on the Saturday afternoon and learn a little more of our nations history from Neil-opeadia – fountain of all knowledge!
There was also plenty of time to sit and strengthen friendships over a coffee and hear what God is busy doing in other church families around the world. It was a wonderful privilege to be a part of something so much bigger, and so encouraging to be reminded again of how vast and diverse the Kingdom of God is.
