Comfort & JoyComfort and Joy this Christmas 

 

We may find ourselves celebrating Christmas differently this year, but we hope will be able to join us at the various services and other things going on across our benefice as we remember the coming of our Saviour.
 
Comfort and Joy holds together the hope that Christmas will bring joy and celebration after a uniquely difficult year with an acknowledgement that – for those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods, or who are potentially still not able to be together with loved ones – iwe are here to provide consolation, rather than assume everyone will be ready to join in jubilation.?
 
This Christmas we will need, in the words of Paul in Romans 12.15, to ‘Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep’. We will aim to celebrate where we can together in one place – but also embrace a wider community that wants to join in the celebration but may not be physically able – or emotionally ready – to do so.
