Set Free – February Message series

" Forgiveness is a central theme in Jesus' teaching. It is why Jesus had to die on the cross, so that we might be forgiven. But what do we need to be forgiven from? Surely, most of us aren't that bad as people, are we! So imagine how forgiveness could be a gift that brings healing and releases life. What if you got what it is be forgiven, and then you became a life-healer and life-bringer to others? Maybe you need to forgive yourself. Maybe you need to give someone from your past. It's time to remove the roadblocks that are blocking your path to reaching your potential and be set free. On Sunday mornings for three weeks in February we'll look at finding healing in forgiveness, receiving and giving, to create softer, tender hearts towards those in broken, bruised relationships. We'll learn to forgive in an unforgiving world.   SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave

On Sunday 1st October there is an opportunity for you to explore our fantastic set of HOME Groups and find one that suits you. If that means trying every single one, we are relaxed and informal and won't be offended if you change your mind! Have a look at our HOME Group's page to find out"
