What is Christmas?

It’s when we celebrate that God so loved the world

That He came to the earth  as a baby to live among us

So He could experience life with us and be an example to us

And later, through his death and resurrection

He took on all our burdens and pains

And opened the door to offer us life in all its fullness

Advent and Christmas services

This year, we’re live streaming our services on our website, through YouTube and on our Facebook page. You’re welcome to join us live, and we’d love to hear from you in the live stream chat box.
