Christmas Day

29 Dec 2018 • General news

We had a brilliant service on Christmas Morning. It was great to see everyone and spend time together. We'd been asked to bring along our best Christmas presents. Most people forgot except for Edward and Theon who brought their Minecraft figures and Mike who brought a 5 feet long; helium filled; radio controlled flying shark. It was a bit wild and no one was very sure what it had to do with the Christmas story. Then we reflected on how great it is to give and receive presents but God's gift to us at Christmas is himself... Jesus... His presence is the best present of all. We thought about how that applied to us. We can give our time and attention to our families and friends in the coming year. It's a bit like Christmas; we give our presence as a present to those we love.

If you're wondering about the picture we took an Elfie Selfie. Very Christmassy.
