The foundation for everything in the Christian life is our relationship with Jesus. He desires a real relationship with every person.

But Jesus doesn’t want people to do things for Him, He wants people who know His love and love Him in return.
Church member Mick Rolley shares his life story of growing up in a non-Christian home in Sheffield, to becoming a Christian as a student, to becoming a missionary in the Balkans, and experiencing personal renewal in recent years.
The Christmas Period is a busy and stressful one and it can be easy to miss Jesus all together at this time of the year.
