Fresh Reflections – Letting the parables of Jesus speak to us anew

15–19 January 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Jesus told stories to open the ears of those who will hear to transformational truths. However, a superficial hearing can mean that we miss the heart of the story, or the truth misses our heart. Come and join us at the start of the new year to sit at the feet of Jesus. Fresh reflections will enable key parables to speak to us anew, and to hear what God is saying to us today.

Who's speaking?
