This Sunday we are continuing in our new series, Living in Jesus, where this week we get to explore ‘Finding Direction’. The reading will be Romans 8: 14-17 and Galatians 5:25. Why not have a read of the passages before the service?

You can also join us as usual every Sunday at 10.30am on our Livestream.
