Monthly Message from Our Minister

December 2021

My friends always laugh and moan at me for putting up my Christmas tree to early. There is a very good reason as to why I do so? Christmas as a minister is so busy once the first Sunday of advent arrives. I love all the lights, trees and cards, and if I am not organised then I run out of time.

The birth of Jesus may be celebrated on the 25th December, but for us as Christian’s our worship for this season begins on the first Sunday of Advent (the 28th November this month). It is a whole season of remembering the light of Christ coming into the world for all people.

So as I sit here looking at the twinkling lights on my Christmas tree in November, I proud to say I am ready for Christ; I am eager to celebrate; and I am keen to enjoy every minute of advent, so that on Christmas day I can truly rest in the knowledge that Christ’s love is in the world today and for all eternity.
