There will be no midweek meeting this week, so the next service at church will be on Sunday 30th December at the usual times of 10.30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Don’t forget the New Year’s Day party, starting at 4 p.m. As Mark commented, “this is where the real games will be!” We enjoy a buffet meal together and then a variety of games. It’s the ideal time to bring along friends and family members, so do come if you can.

Don’t forget also that January is our month of prayer and fasting (though not at the New Year’s Day party, obviously!) You can indicate on the prayer board when the best time for you to pray is and we will then have a whole chain of pray-ers (and prayers) for the whole of January as we seek God’s will for the way forward in 2013.

Normal services resume in January. Don’t forget the family service on Sunday 6th January at 6 p.m. on the theme of ‘Divine Clothes’.

In the meantime, have a truly blessed Christmas and take time to unwrap more of God’s gifts to you as you read His word and spend time with Him.
