‘The Father I never knew’

We live in a society that has been shaped and
divided by religion and for most of us growing up
in this nation, religious tradition of one sort or
another has had a lasting influence on our sense of
who we are and our place in the world. Perhaps the
most profound influence has come through an
implicit message that many of us imbibed not only
from religious but also from our secular institutions, a message that declares “If you want to be
right, you need to do right.” In essence we have
been told “you are what you do. Your worth can be
measured by what you have achieved”. Yet rather
than help us find fulfilment and peace, has the
effect of that message been in fact to drive us away
from the very truth that reveals to us our true worth
and identity? Jesus told a story of a father who had
two sons. Both set out to discover their worth by
doing. One did all the wrong things and one did all
the right things, one walked away and one worked
away, but neither found the worth they were
searching for.
Over the course of three nights, folk who have tried
both routes and come to the same conclusion, will
be sharing their experience of how they found their
true worth in a different message, one that has
scandalised religion for 2000 years; the message of
grace. These meetings are free and open to all and
there will be opportunity for prayer ministry for the
sick. Further information can be seen at

Do you believe that God is
counting your sins against you?
If you do then by now you have
either walked away from Him,
or are working away for Him.
But what would happen to your
life if you discovered He wasn't?
Come and find out. Its free!
