Church hosts conference

Friday August 18, 2017 Written by Published in Local

Celebration on the Rock Church is hosting its second “Supernatural Now” conference this weekend, scheduled to begin this evening.


Organisers say the annual winter conference is based around people “pressing into the Lord and finding a much deeper experience in Christ.

“The conference is about the restoration of the Holy Spirit’s power and activity in the life of the church.”

Church pastor Jonathan Cargill said the “Supernatural Now” conference is about Christians living in a realm that Christ intended, above and beyond the natural realm.

Cargill says God is moving throughout the church, changing and encountering lives.

“Hearts are being transformed, addictions broken, marriages restored, bodies healed. Countless people are carrying testimonies of the Holy Spirit operating in and through their lives.”

The local Celebration Church has invited Celebration Christchurch church pastors Kelly and Melanie Watkinson who lead a church of 2000 people. The couple will minister throughout the conference.

Kelly, who is of Cook Islands descent, has built a powerful ministry in Christchurch and is excited to be in Rarotonga to share throughout the conference.

Kelly and wife Melanie arrived in Rarotonga on Tuesday and say they feel very much at home here.

“Even though we are from Christchurch we feel connected to our extended church family in Rarotonga.” 

Cargill says the Watkinson couple are honest and real people with a strong anointing to see God move in people’s lives.

“Kelly and Melanie ministered at last year’s conference and there was a powerful anointing throughout each service and the people experienced God in a fresh and real way,” he said.

Cargill says we live in a time where there is a deep need to be awakened for spiritual truth and substance.

“This need is not surprising given the bondages, brokenness and hurt that many are facing today,” Cargill said.

The Supernatural Now conference is free and open to anyone.

“Those who would like to be impacted by God, in need, or are just curious, are warmly invited,” Cargill said.

The conference is scheduled for this weekend: Friday 7pm, Saturday 7pm, and Sunday 10am and Sunday evening 7pm. Held at Celebration on the Rock church in Nikao opposite the airport
