ReSource - what do people say about us?
ReSource is an initiative with an Anglican distinctive. We work locally, regionally and nationally, supporting the ministry of the local church - of any type, tradition and denomination - and offering day programmes and tailored retreats or conferences for deaneries, dioceses and denominational groupings. We believe that every church is different, and work with each according to its own needs and context. We work primarily through a core team based in Wells, alongside a wider network of associates with complementary giftings and experience. Our vision is to help build a church which is diverse, local, renewed in the Spirit and effective in mission.

"Thanks too that I received a gift, your book Doing What Jesus Did, a Fresh Look at the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. After reading this book, a lot has changed in my ministry.

I have been witnessing instant healings, some gradual and deliverance from demonic powers" - Capt Joshua Opondo, Diocese of Maseno South, Kenya, February 2016

"I just wanted to say thank you again for coming and speaking at our [God & the Big Bang] event.

‘Thank you from the PCC and members of St Stephen’s Kambah, who attended the wonderful Bishop’s Cathedral Convention in May. We appreciated the presentations by Alison Morgan as the keynote speaker.

Alison was both inspirational and confronting, especially in the reality of applying it to our own situation. Darren Shield on behalf of the PCC of St Stephen's Kambah, June 2015

- the Revd Shaun Henson, Woodstock
