In a world gripped with fear, we have a message of hope, joy and peace – one that needs to be heard and proclaimed. In Christ we can be secure in the knowledge that God is with us, both now in this lifetime and in eternity to come. This is Good News when so many are desperately searching for assurance.
Last year Christmas couldn’t be the same as normal. But for Christians at least, it’s not about planning the biggest family get-together, buying the most extravagant gifts... it’s about celebrating a series of selfless acts.

We held several of our Christmas Carol services outside in various places within our communities. These were well attended and, being outside, we were able to sing carols. Unfortunately it was very cold on Christmas Eve - and we even had to brave a snowstorm!

DIY Christingle packs were distributed to primary school children via the school. We have had some lovely feedback about how they enjoyed making them, and some children brought their Christingles to our Christmas services!
