Day 9 Dec 11 Luke 1: 5-10 Rules vs Trust

We love the idea that if you follow the rules then things will work out for you. It’s why in Britain we are so obsessed with queueing, and why skipping in line is tantamount to treason. We think life is supposed to reward you for following the rules But life doesn’t work like that. Zachariah and Elizabeth followed all the rules that were expected of them: they were good people, faithful Jews, upstanding members of their society; and yet despite all that they were unable to have children, something very shameful in ancient society. In the end following the rules wasn’t enough. But something else was: trusting in God.

In the end it was their faith in God that brought them a son.

Dec 17 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Today is our service of Words and Music. Next week re resume our Christmas Theme – “Christmas Adverts”. Every year advertisers put huge effort into getting their message across. Their hope is that through connecting with the adverts, people will be moved to buy more. For example John Lewis sold out of their Night Sky Projector in the days after their Mog advert was aired. In our services throughout Advent and Christmas, we are going to show how the advertising message does not always reflect the true meaning of Christmas.  Each week we will take a different advert and explore how we can use them to talk about the Christmas […]

Dec 17 @ 18:30 Church
On Sunday 17th December at 6.30pm we are offering a different kind of worship experience. Given how busy Christmas is and how we are bombarded with light and noise this will be a quieter service. There will be time for reflection and one or two gentle worship activities. It will be a chance to take a moment out from rat race to reflect on some of the deeper things of Christmas. It may not be what you are used to but why not give it a go? You might even like it!
