What’s of value? 150 150 Bevan Russell

So, we’re a family of 4 on a journey of faith, believing to pioneer a new, life giving, church. If I was looking in from the outside I’d have some questions. I’d want to know what their story is? What are they hoping to achieve? What will the church be like? Questions are good. I…
