In 2024 we will be continuing online through zoom meetings, which will permit you to join in wherever you are in the UK or abroad. There will also be two live meetings, in April and September, which will be partly livestreamed. Details will soon be on the red button below.

DEVELOPING OUR MINISTRY IN 2024
Over the last three years, the Lord has opened up an amazing opportunity for ADoRE to develop our ministry online. We now invite 1300+ people from all over the UK and beyond to our meetings, and monthly attendance is 100-175. Feedback shows that our format is meeting a need for refreshing the spiritual lives of those already involved in renewal, as well as giving them an opportunity to introduce newcomers to living in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Lord wants us to step out in faith and do even more, in order to help bring the Good News of His Kingdom to those who need to hear about it.
Our ongoing vision is to continue extending our ministry in 2024 by encouraging local parishes and communities to participate in our sessions, so that the FIRE of the Holy Spirit can spread far and wide.
Each month we will develop our understanding and appreciation of how each of us is to respond to Jesus' call to a deeper relationship with Him; to appreciate how He has given us His own Holy Spirit to make us holy temples where He can dwell; to walk in holiness and to exercise the gifts of the Holy Spirit to build God’s Kingdom.
We have an outstanding selection of guest speakers: leaders in Catholic Charismatic Renewal with extensive experience in both practising and teaching on evangelisation. Guided by the Holy Spirit, they will give inspiring and practical encouragement and advice on sharing the Good News in your community.
"I was amazed how inspirational this retreat was. Every section was concise and so powerful. The testimony was profound. Praise and worship so full of the Holy Spirit. Talk was truly divine."
We seek to put Jesus at the centre of all we do: He is the source of new life and we are channels of His renewing, refreshing, healing water in a world thirsty for God’s presence.
We invite everyone to meet Jesus and enter into deeper communion with Him, to experience the love and joy of our heavenly Father. We encourage everyone to receive a new infilling of the Holy Spirit, to ignite their faith, to inspire and empower them to be Missionary Disciples and share the Good News of God’s love with those around them. Together we will spread the fire of the Holy Spirit far and wide!
We provide spiritual refreshment through a programme of Mass, Adoration, Praise & Worship, Prayer, Prophetic sharing, Inspired Teaching and Healing ministry.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP YOUR PARISH TO ATTRACT PEOPLE TO THE LOVE AND JOY OF GOD?
Follow the link to our special "YOUR PARISH" page for tips and resources to enable you and your Parish to develop your own evangelising skills and programmes.
Please help us publicise
On the YOUR PARISH page you will also find (from early in 2024) links to a 2024 poster, a postcard handout and a video, as well as a monthly Parish letter and poster, which you can use to promote our meetings in your Parish or community. (Please ask permission from your priest or parish secretary).
God has always desired His people to be holy - “Be holy; for I, the Lord your God, am holy” (Leviticus 20:7). And St. Paul told the community in Ephesus that God “chose us in [Christ] . . . to be holy” (Ephesians 1:4). We tend to think that, because we are sinners, we cannot be holy. Yet this is not the whole story, because Jesus shed his blood in order to make us holy (Hebrews 13:12).
The truth is that every baptised person is called to holiness, chosen by the Lord to be fruitful (John 15:16). This is not something we can achieve by our own efforts: the Father gives the Holy Spirit to transform us into the image of Christ, so that our lives can bear fruit in witnessing to the good news of God’s love.
Being holy doesn’t mean being sinless, joyless or judgemental; it means co-operating with the Holy Spirit as He helps us to love and obey God’s will and to love our neighbour.
