The Graham Tour
We are still finalizing where the Graham Tour will be held, but we want to be clear that the initiative and all associated training courses will take place on the same dates as originally planned.

We are continuing to consider sites for the main event and when we have determined where the meetings will take place, we will post updates.

All Christian Life and Witness courses are proceeding as scheduled.

The contract that is in place with the Hydro is being reviewed and so to ensure everything goes ahead as planned other venues are being put in place as alternative options should a backup venue be necessary. The event is still set to go ahead on May 30th so the Gospel can be shared.

The local Christian Life and Witness course has been confirmed for The Lighthouse King Street Larkhall on Thursday 26 March 6.30pm to 9.30.

Lectionary Readings this week:
Isaiah 58: 1 – 12
Psalm 112: 1 – 9
I Cor. 2: 1 – 12
Matt. 5: 13 -20
