Everyday Wimbledon – Winter Night Shelter Update

Being a church that changes our communities

Martin Charlesworth spoke powerfully from Mark 14:3-9 and Galatians 2:9-10, reminding us that worship and caring for the poor are connected: compassion fatigue will never overtake a church consumed by worship.
