Message from Rev'd. Diane Smith, our minister.

Dear Friends,

Nigel and I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

Please do join us if you can for a Christmas Buffet at the Manse from 3pm to 6pm on Saturday the 15th December. This will be the same day as our Messy Christmas Carol Event at Trinity.

Above is a picture of the beautiful Icon that can be seen in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. The charity Embrace the Middle East who work with children in Bethlehem living with poverty and conflict has taken this stunning image and produced a 250 piece wooden jigsaw.

During Advent, where possible, I will be traveling around the Circuit and local coffee shops offering groups of people the opportunity of helping to complete the jigsaw. I am hoping that this may lead to a number of interesting conversations regarding the message of Christmas and the good news offered to all in the birth of Christ our Lord.

May I also take this opportunity to thank all those who will be leading Worship during Advent and Christmas.

If you look at the Ipswich Plan you will see a wonderful mix of traditional, contemporary and informal worship. In many of these acts of worship the opportunity to give to various charities will be possible, helping neighbours nearby and far away.

For our annual Advent Course (Churches Together in Walton) we are using a book called The Art of Advent written by Jane Williams. This is a stunning little book, offering a painting a day from Advent to Epiphany with a thought provoking reflection for each day. It works a bit like an Advent Calendar with each day offering new insights.

Wherever the season of Advent and Christmas finds you, may you once more enter into these joyful celebrations with thoughtful reflection and a real sense of awe and wonder.

May Christ be the centre of your Christmas.

May you meet Him in expected and unexpected places.

May you enter into 2019 with the assurance of that presence.

May you have a most wonderful Christmas and blessed New Year!

Love and God Bless always

Diane and Nigel
