We’re delighted that you could join us today for Christmas. We pray that you might be encouraged by God to see the world his way, and to understand Christmas as a time of rejoicing for the miraculous gift of God with us, Emmanuel!
Office arrangements during Summer Holidays
Our secretary Lydia finished yesterday, and Valerie (her replacement) begins on the 25th January. In the meantime, our other staff will be monitoring our church phone and emails.
Jodie and his family will be on leave from the afternoon of 25th December, and will return on 7th January. Graham Errington will be leading our parish during this time. You can contact him on 0430 043 765 or 4232 4914 or email@example.com
During the five Sundays after Christmas, we will be hearing from a range of local and guest preachers on a variety of topics, before we commence a new sermon series in Term One. Next Sunday we welcome Graham Errington as our preacher.
