Do you want to see society changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Come and understand today's challenges, and be equipped to bring hope to our nation.
Saturday 18th March, Central London
"I am more convinced than ever that our Society needs the hope of Christ. When a society truly places Jesus at its heart, it flourishes. When we abandon and reject Him, decay sets in."
