Plans to expand to the north for 2005, new album released.

FOR THE first time in its 15 year history the popular New Wine summer conference is expanding. In addition to its two weeks at Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, New Wine 2005 will also be running a week long conference in Harrogate to resource and equip churches in the north. New Wine In The North will run from 30th July to 5th August 2005 while New Wine in Shepton Mallet will run from 23rd to 29th July and 31st July to 6th August 2005. John Coles, director of New Wine, said about the expansion plans, "It's not about putting on an excellent festival. It's about envisioning and resourcing local churches for work in their own communities encouraging one another as we seek to work with God for the building of his Kingdom."

An album recorded live at New Wine 2004, 'Echoes In Eternity', is being released by Integrity Music in November. The album features English worship leaders Neil Bennetts and Jules Woodbridge, Irish worship leader Eoghan Heaslip, Canadian worship leader Brian Doerksen and American worship leader Eddie Espinosa.
