Summer 2016 'Two ways to live'
A series on The Fruit of The Spirit.
This learning series is about growing spiritual fruit, Galatians 5v22-25, and applying it to our everyday lives, wherever we are.
The fruit of our relationship with Christ is fed and grows from the fact that he lives in us through His Spirit.
Our source and resources are found in Him.
Which way we choose to live, shapes our discipleship and produces a different kind of fruit.
We have drawn on the resources of Langham International for this series.
