Weekly news for Christmas & the New Year

Dear Friends

Thank you everyone for being part of our church family at Christ Church in what has been another challenging year.

We hope to see you over the Christmas period, but if not do have a lovely time.

The next news update will come out on 6 Jan.


A little word

Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son                                                                                                    Hebrews 1.1-2

At Christmas we celebrate the Incarnation, God in human form. Our living, breathing, walking, talking Saviour. As our celebrations welcoming his coming into the world, the fulfilment of a long-held promise, may we welcome him once again into our hearts and lives.

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for the greatest gift ever given
  • for the peace of the world
  • those working to keep all our essential services running
