Not the gold, frankincense and myrrh, but other actions and attitudes that resound through the centuries. The shepherds gave the gift…

Enthusiasm series

For the last two years people have been locked-down and disrupted. But even before that, so many were over-loaded. Some of us had become disillusioned. Others were questioning their faith.

MESSIAH series 2022
