RENEW Season 3 

The theme 'We are Church' is a call to experience more deeply our call to build up the Body of Christ and establish a self-sustaining Church. This is the most wonderful coincidence as we enter our 150th anniversary celebrations “Growing our Church”! God has indeed gone before us and is leading us on this journey.

RENEW Season 3 will commence Sunday 31August 2014 for six weeks and cover the following themes:

1. Gifted by God

2. Family: the domestic Church

3. Calling forth gifts for leadership

4. The service of stewardship

5. Doing our part

6. Bequeathing a legacy

We ask that you start praying for and reflecting on We are Church amd we so look forward to another special RENEW season.

Please invite someone you think will benefit from RENEW.
