All Welcome
Ever wondered how the Bible came about? Why Jesus celebrated the Passover? Or how the seemingly angry God of the Old Testament can be the same loving Father that Jesus tells us about? Ever wanted to understand how God chose and formed a people out of which our Salvation would come? Or perhaps just wanted to know more about some of the main characters that are mentioned time and again throughout the scriptures?

Join us for an interactive introduction to the key characters and stories of the Old Testament which help unlock the truth of the New Testament. With a map, a timeline and a family tree to help fit all the pieces together, we will collectively discover how the story of the people of Israel is our story, with all the joys, sorrows, triumphs and failures of our own walk with God.
