Dear Church family,
It’s been quite a year! I find great comfort to dwell upon the words of Matthew 1:23
‘… they will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’).’
To know that God is with us in Jesus, fills me with a sure and certain hope, and I pray that it will do the same for you this Christmas.
Please look out for my Christmas message that will be coming out soon.
Thank you to everyone who has served this past year in so many different ways often unseen – it’s always a great team effort and it’s very much appreciated. On behalf of the staff, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
With love and prayers,

CHURCH & OFFICE
The church building will be closed between Christmas and New Year, but if you require urgent assistance, please email the Pastoral Hub at firstname.lastname@example.org and we should be able to help you. You can also leave a message on the church answer phone as it will be checked regularly. One exception is that the church office will be open on 30th December, 10am to 1pm.
