Thought of the Week:

So often we point to Jesus as the one who can make all the difference in our lives, the one who can turn despair into hope, darkness into light. Let’s pause and remind ourselves who Jesus is, and why that can happen.
‘But as Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. She is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That’s because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to bring about what the Lord had said would happen. He had said through the prophet, “The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel.”' (Isaiah 7:14)
The name Immanuel means “God with us.” Matthew 1:20-23 (NIRV)
This tells us: (a) Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit. How special is that! (b) He came to ‘save his people from their sins’; that is, to be our Saviour, to rescue us. That is why he came! (c) He is Immanuel; that is, “God with us.”
Through the Holy Spirit, who dwells in Jesus, he carries us into the very presence of God. It is the very presence of God in our lives that changes everything. This electronic age keeps us ‘wired’, like Eveready's Energizer Bunny. It is hard to stop, but stop we must, to take time to be with Jesus, otherwise we shall lose touch with God. Many of us have found by experience that the darkness can be very dark indeed.


Current News

November Rosters available
Now that some of our congregation is returning to church, the Church Roster is active again, and is on the Roster page.


Garage Sale News
Our Garage Sale team is still active, although no actual sales will happen in the near future.
Last week, we were able to help a local family of seven, who lost everything when their house was destroyed by fire. We were able to provide furniture, toys, books, and sheet music for a family member who is a piano teacher.
We have been delighted that we can still help those in need in our community.
