Crossing the Street

Bible study

As followers of Jesus, we are called to cross the street, step out, build bridges and meet people where they are

We are called to live alongside our neighbours with the hope of Jesus. That’s what our intercultural teams around the world do! And it’s what church communities in Australia are called to as well.

Through this four week Crossing the Street series, we will explore stories of Jesus from the Gospels, learn from His example and see how passionate people in Australia and around the world are living it out.
