New Wine is the largest UK network of charismatic churches and Christians. It originated in 1989 as a Christian festival run by two Anglican clergy from St Andrew’s Church Chorleywood: Bishop David Pytches and the Rev. Barry Kissell.[2] Pytches and Kissell had been inspired by the teaching of John Wimber and others that had begun to bring in a new wave of charismatic movement to the established church in the UK. New Wine also runs a number of week long festivals in England, Scotland and Wales.

New Wine is currently led by John Coles and has headquarters attached to St Paul’s Church, Ealing.[3]



David Pytches was consecrated Bishop of the then diocese of Chile, Bolivia, and Peru in 1972. While in South America, he witnessed what he termed a 'spontaneous expansion' of the church. Pytches was keen to see this replicated in the UK and while vicar of St. Andrew's, Chorleywood in the 1980s, he invited John Wimber to his church. Wimber was founder of the Vineyard Church in the USA. Inspired by Wimber and by what he had witnessed in South America, Pytches came to believe that ordinary Christians can minister to others using the scriptural Gifts of the Spirit.

While in the UK, Wimber held a number of conferences resulting in considerable interest in the charismatic movement from churches nationwide. Soon afterwards, Pytches became the leader of New Wine. Unlike John and Eleanor Mumford, who planted the first Vineyard Church in the UK, Pytches chose to establish the values of the Vineyard Church in other church settings.

The name 'New Wine' was chosen as an appropriate biblical description of the ‘new life’ offered to people who were open to the Gifts of the Spirit.

  Summer conferences

The first New Wine Christian Family Conference was held in 1989 at the Royal Bath and West Showground, Somerset and attracted nearly 2,500 people. In 1993 a separate conference for teenagers was launched under the leadership of Mike Pilavachi, then a youth worker at St Andrews. The youth conference was named Soul Survivor. New Wine now attracts over 30,000 delegates over three weeks and Soul Survivor attracts over 28,000 young Christians over two weeks.

There are also a number of New Wine conferences held around the UK and abroad each year.[4]

Over the years, New Wine has attracted many well known speakers, including Caroline Cox, Baroness Cox, Jackie Pullinger, J.John and Brother Yun. The list of worship leaders who have led worship at New Wine includes Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Brian Doerksen, Kathryn Scott and David Ross [5]

  New Wine North and East

The first New Wine North and East conference was held at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate in 2005 with 3,500 delegates attending. In subsequent years, the event was moved to Newark Showground in Newark-on-Trent.

  Children's groups and teams

There are a wide range of children's groups up to the age of 18, including:

  • Gems - for the 0-2's.
  • Pebbles - for the 3-4's
  • Stepping Stones - for the 0-4's (at a different time to the two above)
  • Groundbreakers - for the 5-7's
  • Rock Solid - for the 8-9's
  • Boulder Gang - for the 10-11's
  • The Fridge - for the 8-11's (after the RS and BG meetings)
  • Club One - for the 12-13's
  • Thirst - for the 14-18's

Being part of any of these groups, either as a child or as a team leader, has become one of New Wine's biggest assets with friendships being formed for life.

  Leaders in Training

New Wine works with almost all the training institutions in the C of E to ensure that every person training for ministry in the Church of England has access to practical training in healing, prayer ministry, prophecy, evangelism and visionary leadership. New Wine holds two national Leaders in Training conferences per year.[6]


New Wine has released a number of 'live worship' music CDs recorded at its summer conferences:

  • Only One Name (2011)
  • Glory to you (2010)
  • Saving Grace (2009)
  • Kingdom Come (2008)
  • Cry Freedom (2007)
  • Heavenbound (2006)
  • Hope (2005)
  • Echoes in Eternity (2004)
  • In Pursuit of God (2003)
  • Journey in Faith (2002)
  • Grace (2001)

  World-wide scope

The summer conferences at Shepton Mallet have spawned a number of related conferences around the world. In addition to New Wine North there are separate events in Scotland (Clan Gathering), Wales, Ireland, Finland, Sweden and the US. Further afield, New Zealand initially held independent Summer Wine Conferences but is now affiliated with New Wine. The New Zealand New Wine Summer conferences have outgrown their original venues and are now held in Matamata, Waikanae and Kaiapoi.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
