Some call the book of Acts a model for church, others call it a manual for mission. Some see it as the Acts of the Apostles, others see it as the Acts of the Holy Spirit. Whatever your stance one thing is for sure, it is a book worth reading and learning from. At Sunnyhill we long to be a gospel centered community that moves in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our hope is that by unpacking some of the treasure in this book over the next 3 months in both morning and evening services we will see God do more #onthejourneytogether.
