Join us for our final Sons Arise! conference of 2018.
Your kingdom comeYour will be doneOn earth as it is in heaven.How can earth become like heaven?
Many of us have prayed the 'Lord's Prayer' all our lives with no idea what these lines really mean.
In these days, the Father is drawing us into deeper relationship with Him and revealing much which has been hidden for ages past. As the new is revealed, we increasingly become aware of the limitations and shortcomings of the old ways of doing things. The reality of what Jesus meant by 'new wineskins for new wine' begins to dawn upon us and we realise that many of the things we take for granted in church life and doctrine are no longer fit for purpose (if they ever were).
The new wineskin looks very different from the old, and we need to be ready to continally re-evaluate everything in light of current revelation.
Some of the topics we expect to explore together are:
Laying the foundations for new order ekklesia
Benches of 3, 7 and 12
Establishing an Embassy of Heaven
Legislating for expansion
Developing a statute book
Answering creation's groan for freedom
Restoration of all things
The conference begins with registration from 6.30pm on the Thursday evening, followed by the first session at 7.30pm. It runs all day on Friday and Saturday, concluding at 9.30pm on the Saturday. You are welcome to join Freedom Church for our regular 10.30am meeting the next day.
There will be an early morning round table on the Friday and Saturday from 8.30am to 9.30am.
Sessions will include teaching and activations led by Mike Parsons and others from the ekklesia at Freedom. The conference will be held in our own facilities at the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple. For further information, including travel, local accommodation and parking restrictions at the venue, please scroll down to the FAQs below.
Although we offer a limited live streaming option too (see FAQs), we recommend that you attend in person if possible in order to fully experience the atmosphere and community of the gathering and to build relationships with others on this journey. The teaching and corporate activations from the conference will be live streamed and recorded, but not the worship times.
Digital files of the recordings (audio and video) will be available to all ticketholders after the event free of charge for your personal use. If you are attending on behalf of a new or transitioning ekklesia or kingdom business, please contact us to obtain permission to share the recordings with other named individuals on the governmental benches of those entities. After the event we will make them available to purchase from our website for others.
The teaching/experience level of this conference is intermediate. We recommend this event for those who already have at least some experience of stepping into the realms of heaven and personal transformation. For those who are with us on the Engaging God programme, it is suitable for you if have completed most of Module 2 (Base Camp) or beyond. If you are new to these things, we suggest you consider signing up for Engaging God instead at www.freedomarc.org/freetrial

This is a very popular holiday/vacation area, so we strongly advise you to book your accommodation as soon as possible. Prices rise rapidly if you leave it until closer to the date of your stay, and it can become increasingly difficult to find somewhere suitable, even in September. Please see below for advice on hotels and other places to stay.
Are Sons Arise eevnts just for men?
No, they are for men and women! We don’t say ‘daughters’ because in the Hebrew tradition daughters did not obtain an inheritance. If men can be ‘the bride’ then certainly women can be sons.
Where is the event being held?
At our own building, The Freedom Centre, 1 Howard Avenue. Barnstaple, Devon EX32 8QA, UK (see map).During the conference, the Centre will be closed to the general public but some other users may be working in the building.

The Freedom Centre is situated on the eastern outskirts of Barnstaple.Download or view directions here.
There is a railway station in Barnstaple, about 10 minutes’ walk from the town centre (about 25 minutes’ walk from the Freedom Centre).
If coming from London, the fastest trains depart from Paddington station. There are also trains from London Waterloo, but these are much slower. Wherever your point of departure, you will need to change trains at Exeter St. David’s for the trip along the picturesque Tarka Line branch to Barnstaple.
On arrival at Barnstaple you will probably wish to take a bus or taxi (both available at the railway station) to your accommodation or to the Freedom Centre.
[Note: You may wish to take the train to Tiverton Parkway and travel the 37 miles from there to Barnstaple by taxi. It is advisable to book the taxi in advance. This will normally be faster than changing trains at Exeter St. David’s but is likely to be more expensive.]
By bus or coach:
The local bus and National Express coach station is in the centre of Barnstaple, 15 minutes’ walk from the Freedom Centre.
