About the Glory in the Gospel of John course
Part of the Divine Hope and Glory retreat, this is a stand-alone day that can be booked separately for those who do not wish to attend the full retreat.
We will consider the preaching task and how we might continue to develop and rise to the challenges of the present day. We will investigate John’s Gospel, looking for the vital message of glory and hope it offers.
