What an amazing month and so many people involved. This is just a note to say we SO APPRECIATE the hard work, love, talent, generosity and welcome you have all given as a church over this Christmas season.

To the Oasis team and St Pauls for a beautiful day of fun, friends, food, poetry, worship and more.

To the gardening team for the Christmas trees, the many candles, and the flower ladies for churches overflowing with beauty.

To the SHYP team, the Drama group from Portobello and the St Helens children for creative and fun worship at Families@4 and the Christingle.

To the Christingle Orange team! Thank you.

To all who have opened their homes to family, friends, neighbours and strangers.

May the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face to shine on you as you continue to reach out and welcome all who are searching for the love of God.

Catherine LaCugna says "The very nature of God, therefore, is to seek out the deepest possible communion and friendship with every last creature on earth"

Thank you too to all who have sent us cards, gifts and blessings as we shared Christmas with Tasawer, Rubina , Aaron, Mashameen, Anya, David and our family and to all who helped on Christmas Day. There were 60 of us from at least 7 countries. This month has been a picture of God’s kingdom.

Love and peace into 2017
