EURO 2020

Like Euro 2020, the Christian story is also one of great expectations and hope of a great victory. But when Jesus arrived, he wasn’t the winner everyone expected. Was there more to the cross than defeat?

What does football have to do with the gospel?

After waiting a year for Euro 2020, the hype is building. Who will make it to the final? Who will win?

The Christian story is also one of great expectations and hope of a great victory that would last forever, rather than just 4 years. But when Jesus finally arrived, there was no hype.

He wasn't the winner everyone expected, and eventually he became the loser everyone rejected. But why would the promised ultimate champion chose to die?

Is there more to the cross than defeat?
