Catch up on recent sermons!
We've had some helpful sermons recently. If you missed Hannah's excellent sermon of 3rd June on the story of Jesus and Nicodemus you can read it here . Jesus tells Nicodemus he needs to be 'born from above' or 'born again'. This is pretty foundational stuff so its well worth a read.
Other sermons are available in our resources/sermons section.
