Christmas - 2019

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  Matthew 1:21

Each household in Kingseat and Townhill receives an invitation in the form of a specially designed Christmas card with the times of all the services during Advent printed inside them.  There will also be information provided regarding our ever-popular carol-singing evenings in both village communities.

 

The fact that Mary and Joseph were sorely in need of shelter is reflected in our choice of charity at Christmas.

 

 

 

CAROL SINGING IN THE VILLAGES 

will take place on Sunday 15th December in Kingseat and Monday 16th December in Townhill. All donations which totalled £470 were given to the homeless charity Shelter.



 

 

 

 

 

THE NATIVITY SERVICE will be on Sunday 22nd December at both services. Come along and enjoy!

Prayer for today

O Lord God,

Hear our confessions,

for we are discouraged, in the depth of this pandemic.

Our dreams, and plans, have come to nothing.

We have become really good at complaining, and even better at worrying;

and we are prone to questioning your goodness, and your power to make things right.

Assure us O Lord, of your presence with us;

and of your forgiveness.

Encourage us to keep on believing,

and open our eyes to see your presence around us.

We praise you for you are faithful God,

who gave us Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

Thought for the day          (reflecting on Genesis 50:20) We cannot see the whole story until it is done. Seven months into a pandemic we are weary of it all, tired of the restrictions; but one day we will look back it and we will see God’s hand upon it all. Not that God caused this pandemic, but that God is able to take a terrible situation and use it for good.
