At the time of writing this month’s article we are still able to hold our Sunday morning services in our church building whilst strictly adhering to the rules imposed by the authorities. However the situation is changing almost daily, so please contact us for updated information before you travel.
It’s hard to believe that this will be our last article for 2020 and what a year
it has been; a year dominated by the coronavirus. This is also our last article
before Christmas, the first Christmas that any of us will have experienced
during a global pandemic.
In times of crisis people have a tendency to turn to ‘religion’ for comfort and understanding and the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. Since March 2020, Google Searches for prayer have risen to the highest level ever recorded.
In a time of global pandemic, unprecedented unrest, natural disasters, racial tension and terrorist attacks, where can you and I turn to for comfort and understanding?
The answer is very simple:
we can turn to a Heavenly Father who loves us.
His name is Jesus.
For many, celebrating Christmas 2020 and the birth of Jesus will be full of all sorts of mixed emotions. Many will be grieving the loss of loved ones and many will be desperately sad at being separated from those they love and long to be with at this special family time.
We will all miss lost traditions and routines.
Jesus was and is born for a time such as this.
A carol we all know talks of times of comfort and joy.
The Bible tells us in Romans ch. 12 vs.15
“Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep.”
We all have to have courage and adapt to these difficult times.
Now more than ever we need to turn to Jesus.
There has never been a time when we need to get to know God more than this.
Many people find it difficult to approach a Pastor or any religious leader. Many even try to avoid Christians altogether, as they see us as weird and different.
Well I suppose we are different in many ways, but certainly not weird or
Jesus was different in a way that drew people to Him.
Why not give Him a try?
We wish you all a blessed, peaceful and safe Christmas.
At the time of writing our Sunday morning services start at 11am, but are subject to change, so please give us a call
