Through a miracle involving a monstrous catch of fish, Jesus demonstrated his power and, at the same time, called his first disciples to a life of being witnesses. How does this relate to how we live our lives?

Easter Sunday

Devotion & Multiplication
Acts 13:1-3

Loving the Whole City
Acts 10
Birmingham is one of the most diverse communities in the UK but what does it mean to love the whole city - especially when there are so many cultural and social differences? In Acts Chapter 10, the Holy Spirit shows Peter how the gospel overcomes barriers and takes Peter out of his comfort zone. We need to do the same and the Holy Spirit will help us as we do so.
