The Kingdom and the Kitchen Sink

11th June 4.00pm - 13th June 2.00pm  £165
Led by Adrian and Bridget Plass  

There can appear to be an alarming gap between corporate and official expressions of what it means to be a Christian, and the reality of day-to-day struggles that are part of our attempt to follow Jesus faithfully. Over these two days Adrian and Bridget invite you to cool down, calm down, laugh quite a lot, and perhaps shed the odd tear, as together you discover what Jesus actually teaches about the most important aspects of being useful to him.

 

The Harvest of our Lives
