 WWM Advent 2016 WEB

Walk with Me is a prayer and scripture journey for the seasons of Advent, Lent and Easter.The overarching theme of Walk with Me varies from season to season. However each edition is underpinned by the power and grace of the basic gospel message and an opportunity to proclaim the truths of our faith which gives life: the incarnation, the death and resurrection and the power of the Holy Spirit coming at Pentecost.

The beauty about Walk with Me is the size of the booklet (its an ideal fit for a pocket or handbag), the price, costing only £1 (65p if more than 25 ordered) and its approach, it is written in a simple and accessible style.
