This year our Church theme has been focused on God's character and our Sunday Services have been about the nature of God and how we want to learn more about His character and how we can respond to Him. We've looked at the life of Jesus in Luke's Gospel and more of God's character has been revealed to us through the Psalms and in Philippians and Corinthians and in the book of Ezekiel. In all these studies we have been God's holiness and His power and now we are approaching Advent we are looking toward the birth of God's Son, Jesus, the Saviour of the world. God's nature can be summed up by His amazing, sacrificial love - 'For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life'. Such love – no wonder the Angel proclaimed "I bring you good tidings of great joy". The message prophesied by Isaiah had been fulfilled.

Warmest Christmas Greetings and Every Blessing for 2020.
O Holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in;
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Immanuel.
Phillips Brooks 1835-93.
