New_Year_wallpapers_Happy_new_year__black_background_047674_

Happy New Year to you all from us 🙂 May this be a year of hope and faith, stepping out and loving more, being blessed and being a blessing to others, doing what’s right even when it’s hard, fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves, knowing, being and living more like Jesus ❤

Thoughts and prayers with you all as we go into this New Year together- let’s make it a good’un!

Crib-tingle :)

If you’ve ever felt not good enough for Church or too different, this bunch peeps just led a service! 😉  God loves you just as you are, Church is about knowing and growing in that love that God has for each one of us. We pray you will know that love this Christmas and beyond.

It was awesome to see so many at our Crib-tingle service – we loved sharing a lovely Christmassy spirit together. ❤

Merry Christmas, and love to you all 💞 ‪#‎christmas‬ ‪#‎christmaseve‬ ‪#‎church‬ ‪#‎christmasservice‬ ‪#‎christingles‬ ‪#‎christmasjumpers‬🎄✨🎁🎉🎶

On a Mission this Christmas

This Christmas season we wanted to do something different, to take Jesus and His love and Hope OUT to people. So our Sunday morning youth groups met together to decide on different people, causes and places where they wanted to take some of Jesus love and hope and light into. So we made Christmas cards and christmas stockings with presents for those who live on their own or are isolated. We raised money for local charities helping those in need, we put together Christmas present boxes for Samaritan’s purse who take them to children all over the world who don’t get anything at Christmas and we also set ourselves an “Advent Acts of Kindness” Challenge to share more love and hope in our everyday lives and opportunities… We started this at the beginning of Advent and we’re up to over 70 acts of kindness just in the last 3 weeks and we’re carrying on until Christmas… and hopefully beyond!

 

If you’d like to see more, we showed this video in church this morning…

So proud of our young people and their passion and dedication to share love and faith in abundance with others 🙂 They’re an inspiration 🙂

 

 

Gift Service

It was lovely to see so many so keen for church this morning here so early as we collected gifts and helpful items for those in need this Christmas. We celebrated a baptism with some fun songs and shared some of the stuff the young people have been doing to share the love of Jesus. Gillian wore her awesome Christmas jumper and shared some of the Christmas story and its meaning with us in light of the Gift of Jesus. Awesome and packed service and it was great to share it with so many 🙂

This week we’ve been doing Christmas assemblies at Manor High School, sharing the real meaning of Christmas and how we can use this Christmas season and message to spread more love and hope to all. I shared some of the encouraging things our young people have been doing to share Jesus and His hope with others this season.

Great responses – Great week – Great God
