Advent Devotional - 'THE RADIANT DAWN' is an advent devotional book consisting of 25 daily Bible readings covering chapters 1 & 2 in Luke's Gospel. It would be great if we could be using it together as a church especially as we hope to utilise its themes creatively during December... watch this space! Copies will be available free of charge over the next few weeks.
CHRISTMAS OUTREACH - week beginning 13 December we are planning to be on the street sharing the hope and joy of the Christmas message and some festive refreshments. If you would like to help in any way, contact the Church office on 079 2880 9280.
TEARFUND - next Sunday 12th December the giving will go towards support Tearfund's Special Christmas Appeal. In NI, match funding will apply to all gifts received up to a total collective value of £200,000, so your gift would well be doubled in value. The funds will go into Tearfund's general account and allocated to areas of greatest need. This includes practical support for our global neighbours who have a long time to wait for their covid-19 vaccines and through loss of employment/income are struggling to provide the very basic of needs for their families. Gifts should be placed in a Tearfund envelope or a plain envelope marked Tearfund with your FWO number on it if you wish to gift aid your contribution. Psalm 41:1 "Blessed is he who considers the poor."
You are invited to join a Tearfund online Christmas concert which will be broadcast on Tearfund's main Facebook page on Thursday 16 December @ 7:30pm. This should be a very enjoyable and uplifting event and will include live music from some excellent artists, traditional carols and gospel readings. Visit Tearfund's Facebook page or www.tearfund.org/campaigns/christmas-concert and click on the yellow box "join us".
