Nine Lessons and Carols service

This Sunday we celebrated the Fourth Sunday of Advent. It’s a special traditional service called “9 Lessons and Carols.” We lighted the Advent candle of Joy and we read and sang together to tell the story of our Saviour. This year, many of our new church family participated in the service.

Praise the Lord!” 9 Lessons and Carols” is a wonderful service in which friends and family can easily participate. Why not invite them next Sunday morning? I also concluded my 4 week series on the Foundations of the Faith. And as a special treat after the service, we served warm fruit mince tarts and hot spiced apple juice.

We look forward to seeing you next Sunday morning . What a privilege it is to gather with the saints to worship the God-man who came to earth as a little baby! (In case you missed it, here is the recording of our service from last Sunday, the 12th December 2021. You can find the service by clicking HERE.)

Don’t forget our Prayer and Fasting vigil every night at the church at 7:00pm. We’re going to pray and fast until God tells us to stop. You are welcome to join us any night at the church for prayer.

Finally, can I also ask you to continue to pray for Project Oikos—our strategy for paying off our building. Christmas is a time when people make generous donations to the church. Please pray that our friends and neighbours will be generous this season. (If you’d like further information about Project Oikos, don’t hesitate to call me.)

Thanks Church.Stay vigilant and prayerful. Love each other and keep Jesus at the centre of everything you do.Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or needs. Lord willing, I’ll see you soon. Blessings on all you do.

The peace of our Lord,
