Palm Sunday Message- 9th April 2017

In today’s All Age Service, we watched a re-enactment of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and considered some objects closely associated with the final week of Jesus’ life. Our minister, Peter, then spoke about those objects, and what we might like to consider when thinking about the significance of the events of that last week.
