Discover Purpose


Deeper is a series of short theological series designed to help us dive deeper into the word of God. Running each half term, these will be taking place online from 7:30pm Sunday evenings for the foreseeable future!


We would love to help equip you to hear God's voice for yourself and to be able to share what you hear with others. These three workshops are a safe place to learn about the ways God speaks and to have a go at listening. From those who've never heard God for themselves to those who'd like to grow in their gift, all are welcome!


The aim of NextStep is to provide you with the DNA of Reach, helping you to understand who we are and also how you can get stuck into community life and serving in the Church.
