It's not long now until Christmas Day - yahoo :)
We've still got three more gatherings to go. If you're around please try and find the time to make it to at least one of these opportunities to gather together and focus our attention on something other than mince pies and penguins (I heard today that the shops will sell 17.5 million mince pies this Christmas - no wonder my waistline is expanding already!).
On Christmas Eve at 4pm we have a nativity for children and families. We'll get to sing lots of carols as well as watching the nativity story being acted out in a very entertaining way!
On Christmas Eve at 11pm we meet to see in Christmas Day with carols, communion and a great message from Liam Parker.
Then on Christmas Day we meet at 10pm for an hour to celebrate the birth of Jesus. We'll be having an offering for the fostering and adoption charity we partner with, Home for Good, and hearing from a family waking up to Christmas Day with 6 children including triplets :)
All the meetings are in the Kerith Centre on our Bracknell site. Parking for all meetings other than the 11pm meeting on Christmas Eve will be at the college, with the Kerith Centre car park reserved for the elderly and disabled. At 11pm we'll all be squeezing in to the Kerith Centre and surgery car parks.
Also a reminder that we don't meet on Sunday 28th December - take the time to enjoy a day with friends and family.
Whatever you're up to I pray you and your loved ones have a great time as you hopefully have an opportunity to stop, rest, delight in the company of friends and family, enjoy the food and contemplate what the season is really all about.
