Advent and Christmas at St Paul’s 2017
We had a super time at St Paul’s celebrating Christmas in a variety of services. Over the Christmas period we estimate having welcomed at least 1200 adults and children to celebrate in some way. From the child whose response in the prayers was ‘pa ra pa pum pum’ to the senior gentleman who received his first Onesie on Christmas morning (I look like a fool in it he is reported to have said at the Christmas morning service!) For those who would have been alone this Christmas a delicious meal was offered on Christmas day and the church remained open during the Christmas period for poignant prayers to be written and offered in the prayer book by the door.
Lord Jesus Christ, your birth at Bethlehem draws us to kneel in wonder at heaven touching earth; accept our heartfelt praise as we worship you our Saviour and our eternal God. Amen
