This year’s journey to Christmas will not be like any other we have known. The plans we make for getting together will be strange if not strained. They will include apprehension and uncertainty.

On the first Christmas it was the same. God’s plans, made before the creation of everything we know and have yet to discover, were coming to their fulfilment. Learned men in the east picked up a new star in the sky – they were intrigued and trekked off after it. The shepherds, about their business on the hills around Bethlehem, were visited by God’s messenger and responded by following the instructions they were given. Mary and Joseph had a dodgy start to their lives together, but knew God was in it somehow. They made their way, wondering and pondering.

Nothing went straightforwardly for Mary and Joseph, the shepherds or the men from the east, but in the end, it came together in a humble stable.

They met with Jesus, a meeting that transformed each of their lives. So, in our plans for this Christmas, what a difference it would make to us if we met Jesus, how that would transform our lives, knowing his love and forgiveness. God with us, imagine that, take hold of it. Whether you have known Jesus for decades, or not at all, include meeting Jesus in your journey to Christmas 2020 and see how he will transform your life.




We're currently meeting each Sunday at 10.30am worship from 10.45am in the Centenary Lounge. Wise precautions will be in place to protect those whose health may be easily compromised. Bear with us, and come and enjoy praising God together.
