The first week after Easter sees the popular Real Lives programme return to St Mary's. The week is packed with a series of relaxed chat-show style events, and offers the chance to hear people from all walks of life whose lives have been changed by Jesus Christ.

The events are a great way to invite friends to hear about Jesus in a relaxed atmosphere. Each interview will be followed by a short talk from our guest speaker, Glen Scrivener. The interviews will take place at lunchtimes as well as evenings, but venues do vary so please check the details.

Even if you can't find someone to bring along, please just come along to chat to others who are there. Flyers and posters are available after Sunday services and tickets can be purchased by clicking on the button below:
