One Day Event
Uniquely created by God, we each have a destiny that employs our individual variety of gifts and abilities. Yet, we can feel as though we have missed the boat or struggling with life that stifles us rather than releases us.
During this day, Peter Horrobin will be sharing character studies from Scripture and Christian history about how people knew God’s blessing on their lives as they entered their destiny. He will explore how, for many, the walk wasn’t a straight line, but God’s redemptive plans can bring us through to fulfilment as we walk in obedience to Him.
Peter says, “There is no greater joy than living the life God intended, doing the work for which He made and equipped us. When we really get hold of the spiritual principles that underly this life of faith, there is no limit to what we can do with and for the Lord.”
’For I know the plans I have for you,’” says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’
Jeremiah 29:11, ESV
Founder & International Director, United Kingdom
Peter Horrobin is the Founder and International Director of Ellel Ministries International, which began in 1986 as a ministry of healing in the north-west of England. The work is now established in over thirty-five different countries, providing teaching, training and personal ministry opportunities. (www.ellel.org)
After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in Chemistry, Peter spent a number of years lecturing in College and University, before leaving the academic environment for the world of business. Here he founded a series of successful publishing and bookselling companies.
In his twenties he started to restore a vintage sports car (an Alvis Speed 20) but discovered that its chassis was bent. As he looked at the broken vehicle, wondering if it could ever be repaired, he sensed God asking him a question, “You could restore this broken car, but I can restore broken lives. Which is more important?” It was obvious that broken lives were more important than broken cars and so the beginnings of a vision for healing and restoration was birthed in his heart.
A hallmark of Peter’s ministry has been his willingness to step out in faith and see God move to fulfil His promises, often in remarkable ways. His book, Strands of Destiny, tells many of the amazing stories of what God has done in the past thirty years.
Peter has written many books including The Complete Catalogue of British Cars. And for the past thirty-five years he has been the editor of Mission Praise, one of the largest-selling hymn and song books in the UK and originally compiled for the visit of Billy Graham in 1984.
In this season of their lives, Peter, and his wife Fiona are concentrating on writing so that all their knowledge and experience can be made permanently available in book form through Sovereign World Ltd and other publishers around the world. His book Healing Through Deliverance is now a Christian classic.
See Peter Horrobin’s page for more information.
Ellel Grange is the International Headquarters of the ministry and is where the work began, back in 1986. It is a beautiful country house, from which we offer a wide selection of healing and training events.

He has shown me that He wants to cleanse, restore and heal. God has also shown me that I can be used for Him, despite failure in the past.
