New Year, new hope?

Maybe you have learned to temper your expectations of a New Year, but hope brings joy to life. We could all do with more joy day to day. Where can you get joy-generating hope? We have a new three-session course entitled ‘Hope Explored’ that grounds hope, peace, and purpose in Jesus. If you would like to join a session, please contact Mark for more details.
