2019 Sermons - Encounters with Jesus

The Bible is full of stories. Jesus himself was an excellent storyteller. He met thousands of people. Each one had a story to tell both before and, without doubt, after they had encountered him. This autumn and next Spring we meet ten people who have stories to tell of their encounters with Jesus which will encourage us in our encounters with him.
