Looking at Daniel and the way he lived such a Godly life has been a challenge for most of us.  Today we start a three week series on Titus, a wonderful little book that challenges us to live Godly lives.

During the 9am Sermon, a kids program will run in the Hall, and Creche for the little ones will run in the Session House. Kidz Central will start again after the holidays, 16 July.
