We have had a couple of busy Saturdays. With the family celebration on the 7th
and the Nativity on the 14th
December, a lot of people have worked hard to keep on presenting the church to the community – so that they might see Jesus through the love that is shown.
So we say “thank-you” to everyone who helped to make it happen. Thank you for words and music, for costumes and refreshments, for rehearsals and re-writes, for everyone who helped, whether visibly or behind the scenes.
And a special mention to the children and young people who made the Nativity so special. It’s so good to see you! And so good to see you tell the story of Christmas.
Doris, Helen and team – really, really well done.
The thing is that in telling the story, we remind ourselves of the precious truth of Christmas. We identify with the significance of a baby born to be more than a baby, but to be the Saviour of the world. A story, but not just
a story. The greatest story.
Next week we will use our services to sing carols, to keep on telling the story as our children have, so that we keep on identifying with the truth of Jesus.
So do join us next week, the 22nd December – at 9:30am and 11:15am, our usual times – to celebrate in our Christmas services.
