Sunday 19th April 2020
Welcome! to our Sunday Scattering online. Wherever you find yourself scattered, we pray you will be encouraged from God’s word as we open to Mark 8:27-38 and see that it’s worth getting Jesus identity right. We’ll be asking the question: Who do we say Jesus really is?
Following, is all the information you will need to be able to benefit from our scatterings this Sunday.

Hi kids!! This week we are checking out Mark 8 vs 27-38 where Jesus asks his followers “Who do you say that I am?” & why it’s worth following him even though it’s hard. There’s also questions, puzzles and colouring in based on our passage. You’ll find them in the downloadable documents below. We’ll also hear from Lyn in Sunday’s morning service.
