We would love to introduce you to the one person who has changed our lives forever. His name is Jesus and he has promised to give you life to the full.

re-thinking God // sunday 7 june

We believe that following Jesus makes the very best sense of life. But we get that many people have doubts and are sceptical about church, God and faith. Rather than being put off by doubts and scepticism, we love helping people wrestle with and explore the bigger questions of life.

In March 2019 we had Dan Paterson help us unpack questions like “how can there be a good God if suffering abounds?’ and, ‘what good does Christianity offer the world today?’. On Sunday 7 June, Dan will be back to help us explore some more challenging questions of life and faith.

You can hear Dan Paterson’s sessions from our 2019 Re-Thinking God on our media page, just select ‘Browse Series’ and choose ‘Re-Thinking God’.

talking truth // begins june

Our Talking Truth course is for anyone wanting to explore how to better prepare and present Bible talks. Over the last 3 years we have had Eastsiders from all ministries and of all ages find this course extremely helpful!
