Weekly news for 24.12.23 & 31.12.23

Dear Friends,

A very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year to you all. There won’t be an update next Thursday so info should all be in here.

A little word 

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child. Luke 2.17 (NIV)

The good news of Christmas is something to be shared. If the birth of the Saviour among us means anything, it should change us. Who we are, how we are and what we do should all reflect whom we follow. We who follow the Light must shine the light. May the light of Christ in you burn brightly in the coming year.   

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for the coming of the Saviour. 
  • For everyone who has to work over the holidays to keep us safe and well.
  • For the church throughout the world, in all its variety, following the same Jesus.

We all value having a cuppa after services. For that to continue we need at least one other couple/team to go on the rota. Men can make drinks as well as women! Full training can be given if needed. The more volunteers, the less often your turn will come around. Let Maureen or Pip know you would like to go on the rota.
