St John's Christmas News - 20 December

Dear friends,

In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to shine upon those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luke 1:78-79

At the back of church, by the kitchen, is a table with 2 Christmas cards and a collection box for Tearfund. Rather than sending each other cards this Christmas, please think about signing a greeting to all your friends at St John's in one of the 2 cards on the table and donating the money saved to Tearfund.

If you missed Sunday's service, catch up on our YouTube channel:
