Real Lives Week

Real people | Real Stories | Real Jesus

Over the past few years, we have run several "Real Lives" events weeks. Throughout the week we interview people with an interesting life story and learn how their life has been changed by the Lord Jesus Christ.


In the past we have heard from drug addicts, successful sports people, reformed criminals, and those whose lives have been hit by tragedy amongst others. All are able to say how they have been changed by coming to a personal faith in Jesus Christ and can testify to His help to live life now.

The latest week of events was held in June 2019. Below are the details for a flavour of what happened.
