‘Encounters with God’


For some years at TMC we have had a Summer Series with each preacher taking part, but ‘doing their own thing', otherwise it becomes very complicated!   Past themes have included Paul's Missionary Journeys and Women in the Bible.  Because of lockdown, we were not able to have a Summer Series last year. This year we have selected the very broad theme - ‘Encounters with God’, from both the Old and New Testament, but hopefully with stories which inspires us and thus we may inspire others. Do come, share worship with us during the Summer and be inspired!
