April heralds new spring bulbs, life and creativity in the learning commons. As we celebrate Easter we are gently reminded that through the sacrificial death on the cross, Life and Love may be found in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
