A group of ladies at the meetingRecently we have been looking at the person of Jesus, asking the question, "Why did he come and die and what does he mean to me?" Together we have experienced the presence of Jesus among us and the freedom to share honestly with each other. Along with lack of inhibitions so evident throughout the evening and our love for one another we have all grown closer together and to Him therefore making our Meeting Point very special.
