All Age Christmas service & Carols by Candlelight

All Age Christmas service.

The two plays 'Jerusalem News' & 'Shepherds Story' performed by 10 of the pilgrims were excellent & much appreciated by the good congregation of mums, dads, leaders and brothers & sisters. Two former pilgrims delighted us with solo pieces on the flute & oboe & another read the shepherds story from Luke's gospel.

Mike Hencher in his well illustrated talk reminded us of a line in the carol 'O little town of Bethlehem' where we ask Jesus to be "born in us today"- make it our simple & sincere prayer this Christmas.

Carols by Candlelight.

We had a varied program of bible readings & topical stories brought to us by 7 different people. The soft light from the candles added a special ambience to the favourite carols we sang.

The  overall number of 50 to the both events encouragingly exceeded our expectations.
