Christmas Day

We light the fifth candle for the Light of the World.

“Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given”. Isaiah 9 v 6

We offer you a very warm welcome especially if you are a visitor and to Alan Beesley who is leading our service this morning.

PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please pray for all the people who can’t be with their family over Christmas.
Please continue to pray for Rachel Allen and her family. Rachel is still in hospital following major neurological surgery. The family were hoping she would be allowed home in time for Christmas but sadly this is not possible.

Please pray for our Circuit Ministers Rev Joe Adams, Rev Ken Chalmers and Rev Alan Jenkins.

Continue to pray for all others who are in any way troubled, lonely, unwell or bereaved and anyone else who needs our prayers.

Shines on forever
His glorious light.
