Oftentimes, we find many things fighting for our attention, making it difficult for us to focus on God. This Lent, let us simplify our lives and tune into the gentle voice of God - the One Thing Necessary. Together let us journey with intentionality as we go back to the heart of it all.

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing our reflections on the Scriptures. These reflections will tap on our own personal experiences as we explore how we are invited to draw closer to the heart of Christ. Our hope is that the 'One Thing Necessary' will serve to inspire and give encouragement to you during this season. Come and join us as we embark on this journey together!
