Easter Mission 2014
Who is this man?
His story has long been told.
From the provincial backwaters of Nazareth he travelled the country with an eclectic group of friends.
He transformed lives, fed the hungry, spoke up for the poor and miraculously healed those in pain.
Some condemned him as a troublemaker; others owned him as their Saviour.
This Easter we invite you to join us as we delve deep into the character and person of Jesus Christ, asking the question, ‘Who is this man?’
Throughout Holy Week Wesley Mission is hosting a range of public events for all the community, giving each of us the opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ in a fresh and meaningful way.
