Sunday 28th June 2020
Welcome! This is the first of our Sundays in transition. Morning Church remains scattered and will be online at 10am but Night Church will be gathering at Park Avenue at 6pm. Wherever you find yourself scattered or gathered, we pray you will be encouraged from God’s word throughout our Term 3 series ‘The Good News We Almost Forgot’.
This Sunday we open to Matthew 28:16-20 and Psalm 110 to consider that Jesus is victorious, rules at God’s right hand, completely equips us and calls us to follow him. We’ll be asking the question: Why did Jesus have to go?
Following, is all the information you will need to be able to benefit from our scatterings this Sunday.
