All our midweek groups are running now. If you’d like to dig deeper into the Bible and get to know people better, these are a great place to go! They run at different times and locations throughout the week. See Chris for more info and feel free to try a session.

The Monday group, run by Duncan and Jacqui has changed time and will now be meeting at 11am, Monday at Church of the Saviour.

[Jesus] told them, ‘This is what is written: the Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,  and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations

Luke 24:46-47


Last week we saw that the Bible is good news, for everyone. It is all about Jesus who really did rise from the dead and really can forgive our sins!

This term we’ll be looking how this amazing message led to the formation of the church.

In Christ,
