Do contact the Springfield Office to register an interest: there is no binding commitment, so it’s also a great opportunity to invite friends and colleagues who might like to come along and find out more.

Following Jesus Our new series for Springfield starts today

One of the things that we often forget is that Jesus didn't just come to die upon a cross and be resurrected; He came to model the life that God wants us to lead: we see this especially in the gospels. Our talks will be looking at how Jesus modelled a life to his disciples and also to us. We will be especially looking at the response that Jesus is looking for in our lives by looking at some of the incidents recorded in Mark’s gospel and the conversations that Jesus had there.
