Worship was led by The Revd. Robert Beard who preached on how people of real faith can be found in unexpected places. In Matthew 15 Jesus meets a Canaanite woman who shows a real understanding of who he is and of his power. She believes that although she is not of the house of Israel Jesus can still heal and save her daughter.
