who we are
Bushfire is an equipping ministry based in Sheffield, founded by leaders Andy & Heidi Tiplady in 2005.
Born out of a desire to go deeper with God and to live out all that we're called to as believers in Jesus, Bushfire has evolved into a living organism of like-minded people, who together are learning and practicing the presence of God, with an awareness of the times and seasons in which we live.
Bushfire is not exclusive, we're not an 'elite' group of radical Christians, but we are all hungry for more of God anc concerned that we take ownership of our own relationship with God. Like other groups in the nation, we have been awakened by the Holy Spirit to prepare ourselves to move into all that God's promised us. We believe we're part of the Bride of Christ, and want to get ourselves ready for an amazing marriage feast in the not-too-distant future, but also know that this world will go through some tough and dark times. It's our time to shine and be a light to the world!
The Lord spoke to Joshua and the Israelites to 'consecrate themselves, for tomorrow I'm going to do amazing things among you' (Joshua 3:5). This is it.
Now is the time to see God in a new way. It's time to have an intimate relationship with Jesus, to know the voice of the Holy Spirit on a daily basis and to live out John 5:19, 'I can only do the things I see my Father doing...'
