Plenary: Five Visions of Mission on Our Doorstep

Morning Bible Teaching

From Rev. Geoffrey W Chapman

“To the End of the World and the End of our Hearts: The Double Direction of Mission”.  

In our morning Bible study we will dig into the Book of Acts, noting how the Spirit draws people into a new kind of community where the resurrected life of Christ was poured out and happily lived, while simultaneously impelling people outwards with deeds and words that testified to God’s grace.  Week after week, we gather and we go!
