Welcome! Join us in our special service of worship for Christmas Day, led by lay preacher Karen Smith
We gather on this Christmas Day as do so many congregations from around the world. We have journeyed together in song, prayer, scripture, praise and worship throughout this season of Advent on the Road to Bethlehem. We have been assured of the hope, love, peace, and joy that exists because of the birth of a child – Emmanuel – God with us. May we experience this Christmas Day not as the end of a journey, but the continuation of one as a disciple of Jesus Christ, the one we celebrate!
Many thanks to Bridget and Robert Mitchell for the candle lighting meditation, and to Kirsten for the reading. Thanks to Anna Smith too, for leading the responses.
