Paul Manwaring

Paul’s career has four distinct seasons, training as a psychiatric and general nurse, managing prisons, serving on the senior leadership team of a globally impacting church and now pursuing revival based in Windsor England.

Paul brings a diversity of teaching, ministry, and encouragement. His three books tell a story in themselves, starting with God’s great strategy of Glory, the revelation of God’s goodness in beating cancer and an encouragement to us all in how we can reveal the Father.

You will find Paul teaching, coaching, preaching, and imparting. He loves the church and his strategic teaching is focussed on the church being the best that she can be. But he is a pursuer of Kingdom and will lead people and organisations into the next step of their journeys, whoever they are, whatever they do, and wherever they go.

Paul loves to see change for the good. Changed lives, changed organisations, and ultimately changed nations. But it must all be based on encountering the love of God for us and for our beautiful world. It was an encounter through a prophetic word which led to Paul becoming known as a father to evangelists. We may not all have a dramatic conversion story but we who know Jesus have been radically saved by the love of our Father. It is that love, acceptance, trust and value that we all need and which will equip us to take this radical love everywhere we go.

Paul’s passion is for us all to experience an inner experience of finding our ‘spiritual’ home and from there we can be truly sent out to bring change and transformation to our world and the people in it.

Wynelle Burns Cowdery

Growing up in Latin America as a Missionary’s kid from the age of six formed a very unique background. I grew up hearing The Word and speaking both Spanish & English and began teaching my first Bible class for children at seven years old. Later, I began preaching at the age of 12 and God gifted me with a grace to mentor/coach young people to help them discover their God-given purpose in life.

If there is anything to be said about me, I am absolutely passionate in my calling about people especially young adults ages 16-35. I have been blessed to appear on several Television networks in the USA/Latin America. Receiving the award for the “Most Outstanding Woman of the Year” in 1988. I have written two training manuals, hosted my own television programs for young adults on our own 24/7 Internet channel, Breaking Barriers TV and am currently launching an Apostolic Training Centre in London for young adults worldwide both in person & online.

Ultimately I want to use the gifts given to me to see people fulfil their destiny in life and be sent out. Common people with uncommon goals who make an uncommon commitment can help an uncommon number of other people.

True Vine Church Worship Band

True Vine Church is located in Newport on the Isle of Wight and the worship band are delighted to be able to support Lion Heart Festival by leading a time of worship.



‘Stop’ is an Island band and we are truly excited to be invited to play at the Island’s Lionheart Festival for the second year!

We are drawn from different churches across the Island. Several members are Singer/Songwriters who all have the same goal. To communicate the Good News of the Gospel, Our Album ‘Signs’ was an enjoyable eclectic mix of unique songs and styles including Country, Rock and Blues. We believe our music is a message of God’s unconditional love for us all through Jesus Christ. Surely a red-hot invitation to receive what only He can give…the abundance of Life in all its fullness.

Our vision is to touch the hearts of help restore lives..and to enjoy the gifts He has so graciously given. We have performed in Clubs, pubs, prisons and outreaches and different Church events over the many years we have been together. Also having featured on ‘Isle of Wight Radio’ and Vectis Radio, singing ministry songs from the heart. It is our joint aim to see transformation as we perform what we know and see, as ‘A message from the Fathers heart’.
