LifeStream Europe began as New Wine in Europe.
A growing number of Christians from around Europe were coming to New Wine England summer conferences where Barbara and Francis began to serve as International village hosts. Out of this in 2008 they formed an English speaking European New Wine Leaders network with the support of New Wine International. This developed into New Wine Europe with Training days and leaders’ networking events happening in both Versailles, France and in the Netherlands/Belgium area and people from churches in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland coming to these and meeting in the ‘International’ village at the English New Wine summer conferences. In the summer of 2009 Barbara received the vision for a New Wine Europe (English speaking) summer conference. For 5 years from 2011 we held summer festivals as New Wine in Europe
In 2015 after the summer festival we became LifeStream Europe with a clearer focus on the International English speaking Christian presence in Europe and its purpose in witnessing to Jesus in the power of the Spirit in Europe. During 2015-2016 LifeStream Europe vision and organisation was developed to serve that call to minister to and through internationals.
Who are Internationals? We are people who not only are at home in the country in which we now live but as much (or even more) we are at home among people who have come from other countries around the world.
