Pastors' and Leaders' Notes

This May we will be exploring John 4 - Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well.

We have created a booklet for you including suggested themes and reflections to help prepare your messages around John 4. The themes can be used in one service/event or expanded to cover all 4 Sundays in May.
