  • Life In All Its Fullness

    Life In All Its Fullness

    Having faith is all about remembering who we really are. The Bible says that humanity is made in God’s image. That must mean we are capable of more than we imagine. Have we forgotten our true identity?

    Who Has The Most Toys?

  • Evangelism

    Evangelism

    Acts 1:1-11 God is relying on us to be his witnesses, evangelists, ambassadors. Preached by Geoff Cook on 3 October 2010 as part of the Square Mile series.
