Present Your Bodies (40 min)

EASTER CONF 2018 – David Vallance opens the 2018 Easter Conference with a look at Paul’s challenge in Romans 12 to “present your bodies a living sacrifice”. His challenge?

Faith in a Great God (34 min)

EASTER CONF 2018 – Craig Munro preaches on how to make spiritual progress in the midst of loss and disappointment (from Job 36:24-37:24).

In his 3 conferences messages, Craig spoke on faith (here), then hope and finally love (Message preached 31st Mar 2018)
