As part of a week-long series of special events, Andrew Sach will be interviewing a number of guests to help us think about this big question. Each evening will include a clear and engaging talk from the Bible by Andrew Sach. These will be informal and interesting opportunities for colleagues, neighbours, family, and friends to hear about Jesus.

Evening Events: Truth, Hope, Belonging

Entry will cost £5. Canapés and refreshments will be available from 7pm. The interview and talk will start around 7:45, and we aim to finish by 9pm.
