My bible study group viewed and studied the series Faith Runs Deep… There were 10 of us who wholeheartedly endorsed what a brilliant series this had been, we didn’t want it all to end and felt like we wanted to explore all over again.

We were challenged to examine our faith and attitudes, to undertake some of our own research, and to carefully examine the scriptural linked references.

These wonderful studies inspired us, challenged us and filled us with renewed hope and enthusiasm, as we saw and heard so much evidence that faith does indeed run deep, right across our huge continent of Australia.

With grateful thanks to all for what must have been a mammoth undertaking, but with God at the helm we know that nothing is impossible.
