First Sunday after Christmas

Service Date: 
31 December, 2017

Worship was led by The Revd. Margaret Herbert  who spoke of the real joy of Christmas - the love and hope given in Jesus. Simeon and Anna expressed that joy and saw hope in the young Jesus. While we live in a dark world we must not forget that Jesus too was born into a world where there was war, cruelty and suffering. We have a task to do in our world to show that God is with us and trust the future to Him
