What is Sligo 20? (From their website)

We are called to live lives that count. Lives that count for the Kingdom and for the King. As we call out to Him together – God’s Kingdom presence breaks into this world. New Wine Ireland exists to enthuse, equip and resource the local church across Ireland for radical mission that will change this nation.


Sligo 20 provides a space for this. It is a key event for the church in Ireland to join together for a week of worship, ministry and teaching.  We believe this call is for everyone and that we can all play a part in it.  Whoever you are, wherever you are from and whatever age you are, Sligo 20 is for you. Whether you come on your own, with your family and friends or with a group from your church there is something for you.
Encountering Gods presence is for everyone! Relevant and fun filled programs keep those aged 0-18 happy while the adults can enjoy the main sessions, seminars and workshops throughout the week. Our key values of worship, teaching and ministry are held firmly in all our programs.
Sligo 20 provides a space and a place where churches and Christians from all over Ireland, can come together to hear God, so that local churches can be empowered and equipped to change their community and Ireland.
