We celebrated Mothers’ Day. If you have ever had a mother, then we’re saying thank you to God. Without her, you wouldn’t be here! No matter what your relationship with her was like, God used your mother to bring you to the place where you are now.

We’re also continuing our study in Ephesians. The Apostle Paul will teach us how to become mature Christians—a message for everyone.

I’m glad to announce that we’re had our YouTube service again (9th May). Please come and join us as we fellowship “together.”
