Event description
GBI Convergence 2019

About this Event

The theme for this years convergence is FOLLOW drawing inspiration from the prayer of Saint Brendan:

"Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You. Christ of the mysteries, I trust You to be stronger than each storm within me. I will trust in the darkness and know that my times, even now, are in Your hand. Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for You.”

Celtic Christians used a phrase to describe the Holy Spirit that can be translated to “wild goose”. They had discovered that the journey of faith is to follow God beyond the familiar on an untamed and unpredictable adventure.

All of us have experienced the beauty of life lived pursuing a God who is adventurous, surprising, mysterious, and beyond our control. We have spent seasons together pursuing Him in joyful abandon. Our hearts have been enlarged in these times by a greater understanding of God's heart and His ways. During this convergence, we desire to push even more radically beyond the boundaries of comfort and familiarity and to FOLLOW. This will be a time to be encouraged and strengthened in our faith so that we are able to walk forward steady, unswerving and without growing weary.

Location: Bray, Ireland

Bray, is a coastal town just 20 km (12mi) from Ireland’s capital of Dublin. Being able to enjoy the beauty of the countryside of Ireland with easy access to the hub city of Dublin makes this an ideal location. Bray offers a beautiful beachfront promenade with views of the ocean, and rocky cliffs rising up to form Bray Head. Bray also offers a variety of top rated restaurants, cafe’s and traditional pubs. We are sure to find fun places to hang out and enjoy some traditional fish and chips or even a pint of ale.

Our corporate gathering times during the convergence will take place at Cornerstone Church at the Well located in Bray.

Official End of Convergence 2019

The convergence officially ends after our evening gathering on Saturday. However, you are welcome to join the Sunday morning for a church service at Cornerstone Church at the Well. Matthew Rudolph will be sharing during the service.
