You asked, the Bible answers

Although we’ve been involved in the community for many years we’ve been trying to get to know our neighbours and bit more, and it’s been really very enjoyable. We’ve been asking them 3 questions, one of which is:

“If you could ask God one question, what would it be?”

The two most popular responses were:

Why all the suffering? And,

Why can’t we all just get along?

We are inviting our neighbours, and anyone else, to come to two special services on 22/July and 29/July, 10 am, when our pastor, John Edmonds will be answering these questions from the Bible. We believe the most famous book in world has answers of substance and that they bring hope. Come and find out!
