Just a gentle reminder that food left at the back of the church is for the food bank or specific charities. If you are in need please see Sylvia or Rev Bevaly.

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and the princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.
Poem by Howard Thurman (1899-1981)

We wish you all a joyful and blessed 2024
