March 24th: What gives God the right to tell me how to live my life? Why are there so many rules?
March 31st: Why Does God allow suffering? Why is there so much evil in the world?

TUEsday Night Student Gospel Community
At Risen Church we run Gospel Communities. They are open to all. These are like Cell Groups or Bible study groups but we like to call them Gospel Communities because at the centre of the Christian community is Jesus and good news about him. There are groups on Tuesday & Wednesday. We might start one on Thursday.
There is one just for students on Tuesday Nights.
It starts at 7:30pm and we finish at 9pm usually with dessert.
Once a month we have dinner together before hand.
Message Glenn below if you’d like to come along.
We usually pick up people from Nathan Campus at 7:10pm at the gym steps. But message me just to make sure and we can tell whoever is giving a lift to look out for you.
