The complexity of compassion: making a difference in the real world

5–7 October 2018 (Fri–Sun)

We live in a world scarred by injustice, pain and suffering. Change does not come easily. We’ll explore the transformative power of Jesus’ message of grace and truth and what it means in the gritty reality of our broken world.

“I arrived exhausted in mind, body and spirit and left restored in body and back in the loving arms of the Lord, to re-enter serving Him in the church.” — A recent guest
