Midweek Musings – Rumours Of Angels

We should welcome strangers with open arms, because in the past some have met messengers of God (angels) without knowing it…

Offer Grace – Be Aware

There’s an art to living well amongst people you may differ with. Where do you draw the line? Do you need to draw a line?

Midweek Musings – Neither An Amoeba Nor The Star

Share Grace – A New Future

Our Easter service, looking at what happened when Jesus met with Peter and other disciples, and the new future He offers.
