Hope Explored –  What’s the best future you could imagine? There are few emotions more powerful than hope. But these days, hope often feels hard to come by.  Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?  The Hope Explored course looks at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel. This free three-session course shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present.  If you want to find out more about when we will be running the course,  please contact the office, details below.
