Happy Christmas to everyone who reads the Blog each day. Thank you to everyone who has kept in touch through reading and listening and watching bits of the content each day on the Blog. This has been an unexpected way to stick together during the last 9 months may you all know God’s Blessing on this special day.
Join us during Advent as we realise, “Christmas Is Different - Jesus Is Better”. Each day we delve into the book of Hebrews, fix our eyes on Jesus and realise that He is better than everything else. Better than the worst things of this year, but also better than the best things we have ever experienced. Each day there is a short video based on a passage from Hebrews. By Christmas Day we will have read through the whole book of Hebrews, but more importantly we will have looked to Jesus each day and discovered that “Jesus is Better!”
Do remember taht we have an Online Christmas Morning Service this year

Let’s Pray For Social Witness
Pray for residents and tenants of residential / nursing homes and Supported Living Units as they celebrate the birth of Jesus. Give thanks for the dedication of staff who are having to work on Christmas Day, away from their own family.
Pray that those feeling the pain of loss, or dealing with trauma, this Christmas would know and be assured of the hope and restoration that Jesus, Light of the World, can bring.
