Sunday 3 June 2001
Welcome to our Father's House.  We trust you find this a great time of sharing together around the Lord's Table and in His Word, and enjoying fellowship with the Saints.  If we can assist you today please make your request known to the door stewards or one of the Elders.  If you have no church home and you wish to consider this as: "the place of the planting of the Lord" then please see Fred King, our church co-ordinator.


Kicking around the QUESTIONS OF LIFE?
What is the point of LIFE?
What happens when we DIE?
What relevance does JESUS have for our lives today?
Ho do we deal with GUILT?
YOUTH ALPHA OUTREACH PROGRAMME WILL GIVE YOU THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS
Starts 19th June
See the enclosed brochure for details for yourself and take one to give to a friend, family member or someone you may think would be interested.
"They won't know unless you tell them."
