Our annual Longest Night service will be on Saturday, December 21 at 7pm in the Chapel. All are welcome for a quiet reprieve from the hustle and cheer of the holiday season. Gather for a worship service of prayer, music, candlelight and solace.


Sock it to 'em!

Bring your donations on Sunday - or anytime during the week to the Church Office - up to and including Sunday, December 22, at which point they will be delivered to the DI.

Sermon – Advent 4 Love – The Magi: “Supporting Role”

December 22, 2013         Supporting Role (poem by Lee Spice)

So busy are we, following the Gospel of Luke
that we risk missing the few lines from Matthew
also telling of the extraordinary birth.
But this is Joseph’s story.

And so into the cacophony of angels and shepherds
mangers and busy towns;
into our pageants with donkeys and sheep and tinsel
and stars with wise followers,
and innkeepers at the door, saying,
No, no, there is no room here –
into the Nativity sets on the mantel
barges Matthew’s account
of a tough decision in tough times.
Oh.
