Stories of faith in lockdown

Where can we find answers to our biggest questions of life, the universe and everything? Where can we find hope in confusing times? What difference does the Christian faith make to life in a Pandemic?

In Unlocked: Stories of faith in lockdown we will be listening to the stories and learning from the wisdom of three individuals who have faced some of life's biggest questions head on, found answers that help make sense of it all, and lived to tell the tale.

The format will be Q&A, with an opportunity for you to ask your own questions too.
