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!”
Let’s Pray For Forces Chaplains
Pray for PCI Forces chaplains, members of the Forces and those who are serving overseas
at present. Pray for their safety and health and remember them and their families, who are remaining at home over Christmas.
Pray for all involved in PCI’s prison chaplaincy ministry. Pray that chaplains would have opportunities to share their faith and the good news of Christ’s birth this Christmas.
Here is a short devotional meditation from the Bible Society and Movement Day UK
Canon J. John has been recording a word of the day since the first lockdown began in March. I may be a bit late at discovering this but they are still worth sharing, and all presented in less than a minute.
"In the Bleak Midwinter" - Keith & Kristyn Getty
Recorded LIVE at the Grand Ole Opry House for the Sing! Conference 2019
Every year, The Salvation Army holds a carol concert at the Royal Albert Hall. For many people, the carol concert is a high point in the lead up to Christmas. Sadly this year, because of restrictions, the event cannot be held at the Royal Albert Hall, but it is an opportunity for us to bring the concert to you in your own home!
There are some celebrity readers and participants and of course the top brass band and songsters to bring the joy, the message and the meaning of Christmas to you, at home.
In the absence of regular opportunities to gather, the Chaplaincy Team across all the sites have worked together with staff to offer this Virtual Christmas Carol Service.
Join J.John as he interviews another inspirational guest. Facing the Canon this week is Alister McGrath, Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University.
