Quiet Christmas

Our evening service on Tuesday 20th December will be a “Quiet Christmas”.

Christmas is traditionally a time of gladness and celebration, a time when families gather together for parties and merriment.

But for those grieving the loss of loved ones, or whose family circumstances are difficult, it can be a very lonely, depressing, time. Somehow isolation is more painful when it seems that all the rest of the world is celebrating.

While the birth of the Christ child is rightly an event for joyful celebration, a quieter service, which acknowledges that not everyone is looking forward to Christmas and the New Year, can offer some people a way of honouring their mixed feelings at this special time. This service will help us to remember that God’s Word comes to shine light into the darkest places of life.
