Led by the Spirit
Do you expect to be led by God's Spirit this week?

In Sunday's talk Tim challenges us to live at this depth.

It's all about growing
No- one wakes up in the morning and thinks, ‘I plan to make life difficult today for my friend, my wife, my children.’ No-one starts a friendship or gets married with the intention of making it go wrong. So why does it go wrong so quickly and easily - and what can we do about it? Read John's latest Bible insight for answers.
