Truth at Work Tips
How to give a 1-2-1 guided read-through of John's gospel
Many of our colleagues won’t step inside a church building. It is an alien environment about which they probably have all kinds of preconceptions. Common ideas about church include: ‘I'll have to sing’, ‘I’ll feel awkward’, ‘I’ll be judged’, ‘I’ll be pounced on’, etc.

In the blog posts below you’ll find out more about Truth at Work, and there are lots of tips and resources to help you share the Gospel through a Gospel. (If you are coming to this fresh you may wish to start by looking at the earliest posts first.)
