Sunday 5 June 2011
Hi everyone.  Come along to our church services today at 374 High Street.  We extend a special welcome to all those visiting with us.

Sunday Morning
10am - This morning Pastor Brent will be carrying on with our current theme of 'Influence.'  We hope you enjoy the service and will stay for a coffee afterwards.

Last week I asked the question, "Is it possible to occupy a place without influencing it?"  The answer was "Yes."
Today we will look at a story in the Bible where Jesus brought great change to a town after a conversation with just one woman.
Can we be like Jesus in the world around us?
I'm looking forward to sharing God's word with you today.

Blessings
Pastor Brent Pickworth
