Principal Services - January to March 2009

A new year brings a sense of promise, the feeling that things can be different, better. Many of the passages explored in our worship point us towards the personal transformation and the social transformation that the gospel heralds. From Paul's dramatic conversion to the creative engagement of our church community with our neighbourhood and beyond, this promises to be a time of change we can believe in.
