History


ReSource has been running in its present shape since 2004. Our roots are in Anglican Renewal Ministries, founded in 1982 to encourage individuals and churches to embrace spiritual renewal, and in Springboard, the Archbishops' initiative for the Decade of Evangelism.

ReSource began life in Abingdon before moving to Wells in 2008 and then to Telford in 2018 to be in a more central location in the country for its national work.

ReSource was directed by Martin Cavender from 2004 until his death in 2015. Kevin Roberts succeeded him in 2016, moving from his previous work as Archdeacon of Carlisle and before that 25 years in local church leadership. He works with a small team of staff and consultants and a wider dispersed team of people with complementary experience and gifting who deliver ReSource’s ministry across the country.

A generation and more after the celebrated rediscovery of the gifts of the Spirit in the church, we believe that the time has now come to broaden and deepen our understanding of spiritual renewal, and in particular to embrace its discipleship and missional dynamics. Renewal of the church is not an end in itself, but part of God's purposes in building his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

 Testimonial

"Resource offers a gentle, genuine, experience of charismatic ministry sensitively taking people out of their comfort zones. For some new to faith, this meant a safe space to receive prayer and experience more of God’s transforming love and peace. For one couple who had missed out before, the igniting of new passion in their faith. This has led to them stepping into new roles of service in the church. For some wary of the Spirit from past experiences of insensitive or disingenuous ministry elsewhere, the recovery of a receptivity and confidence in the power of the Spirit."
Annie McCabe, St Luke’s Southsea
