11. Virtual Jesus // Who is the real Jesus?

Is Jesus a relic of the past, a killjoy, a self-help guru or even toxic? Why do millions of people around the world follow this man?

Join us as we journey into the heart of John's Gospel and unravel the profound 'I Am' sayings of Jesus. This series isn't just another lecture; it's an invitation to encounter the core of Christ's identity and an opportunity to connect with the Son of God personally.

In these ten weeks, we'll unveil the intriguing nuances of Jesus' self-revelation, shedding light on his roles as the Shepherd, the Resurrection, the Way, and so much more. Whether you're sceptical, seeking answers, or intrigued, come and experience Jesus in his own words – a God who bridges the gap between divinity and humanity, offering solace, purpose, and a transformative encounter that speaks to the depths of your heart.

These life-changing truths transcend time and speak to the essence of your existence.
