LEARNING PROGRAMME

ADVENT 2018 - Easter 2019

We are exploring what it means to know Jesus personally, and to be a member of his church and to live in light of the resurrection. Our journey will take us through Luke’s gospel exploring the life of Christ and learning to pray the Psalms as Jesus did. We will walk the path of the cross, discovering the deeper meaning of repentance and grace. Finally we will encounter the explosive power of the resurrection and what it means for joyful christian living.
