Grow Nights are back on Tuesday nights for the month of June, and we have three courses on offer! They’re for everyone, and you’re welcome to bring your friends. One course on offer is “Who’s Who in Jesus’ Neighbourhood” with Pamela Griffiths. Who’s who in the New Testament? Lots of names, lots of characters! Who were these people who inhabited Jesus’ world and interacted with him? This series gives us a chance to pause and wonder at who these actual individuals were. We’ll take a fresh look at a selection of named characters in the Gospels and in Acts. We’ll also take note of the background factors (political, religious, economic, social, cultural) that impacted their lives and their responses to Jesus. And as we get to know these men and women better—as we see them in their real-world, 1st-century-AD setting—we’ll find our own faith in Jesus affirmed and deepened. We may even better understand ourselves!

This Sunday morning we’re showing the Champions League Final between Liverpool and Tottenham on our new big screen in the auditorium! Malcolm and Geoff are running a BBQ before the game and at halftime, so bring along your bacon, eggs, and sausages for a fry up. BBQ from 6:30am, game starts at 7:00am. Invite your friends! (Church service starts as usual at 10:00am).

Ngā mihi nui,
Sarah and Elliot
