Church without Walls: where barriers come down, people are welcomed, and together we flourish.
The nights are drawing in, Christmas lights are appearing, plans are being made for a 'back together Christmas'. For many though, this isn't an easy time of year, the perfect Christmas on the TV rarely matches up to the reality of our lives. There are family tensions, grief at those we have lost and for many a sense of isolation. And of course there is also this year the continued concerns about COVID.
How do we hold onto the heart of Christmas? A story so far removed from the glitter and frenzied shopping spree it has become. We remind ourselves what we are truly celebrating, the birth of God amongst us, born into poverty, born to a young Mum, fleeing as a refugee. Yet in this small vulnerable child God chose to come close to us to show us the depth of God's love.
That is the heart of Christmas and that is what we will be celebrating by sharing the love we see in Jesus so come and join us, whether online or in person, outdoors or indoors. All are welcome, whatever age, gender, sexuality, ability, EVERYONE!!
