During 1996 a small group of like-minded Christians began to pray for Southwell asking the Lord to reveal His will and purposes for this time and place. One of the key scriptures being 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 which has become the influence for our praying for our area and for revival.
“If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be opened and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place”.
2 Chron 7: 14-15
This group is now known as Living Waters Ministries
The people of Living Waters come from a wide variety of backgrounds both in terms of church origins and occupations. Different personalites, as well as vastly diverse lifestyles are blended together in what has become a unique representation of the Bride of Christ.
The one common denominator is the vast majority of regular attendees (there is no formal membership role) have had a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ being mindful of where we have come from. We also have a strong identity of who God has called us to be. How God takes us to that place is a journey which we will continue to walk but we are confident that He will complete the work that He has begun.
(Philippians 1:6) Being confident of this that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
