* WITH HEARTS BURNING

Bishop Steve recently launched the program called "With Hearts Burning".  This is an invitation to you to join with the Bishop as he reflects on the disciple's journey with Christ on the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35) 

Between now and the end of 2018 six modules will be issued. You may wish to use the reflection as part of your Parish group, home group, young adults group, or with your friends or family, or for personal prayer. At the end of each month those participating are invited to morning tea to share their thoughts with each other and offer suggestions for the Parish and the Bishop.
