Sunday 26th 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 13 and see that it’s worth being prepared for Jesus return. We’ll be asking the questions: Am I living for Jesus now? Am I ready for His return?
Following, is all the information you will need to be able to benefit from our scatterings this Sunday.
