It is a great encouragement to hear of people inviting people to this. Do invite people and do come along even if you haven’t invited anyone so that you can see what the evening is like and also so that there will be a good crowd to welcome those who come. Growth Groups are not happening that evening to free us up to bring the gospel to others. We begin at 8 and finish at 9.30pm with more time for chat afterwards.
