Join us at Brisbane Central as we start our new series, Transformers: Gospel Metamorphosis in the Book of Acts. This week Pastor Neli delves into the character arc of Peter, a fisherman from Galilee, who became a pivotal figure in early Christianity.

We can be encouraged to be like Peter, we can leave behind our past and follow Jesus, experiencing a remarkable transformation.
