This is the second Sunday of Lent and the second one in our new sermon series – Operation Transformation. We are exploring areas of discipleship that are top priorities. Each week’s sermon includes practical points for how to implement what we have heard. These together should help us form a Rule of Life. On Wednesday evenings we will explore the previous Sunday’s theme in more detail at a weekly Zoom meeting. It will provide an opportunity for questions and further discussion.
