Four More Sleeps


Only four more sleeps until the big man comes (and we celebrate the moment the trajectory of human history was changed forever!).

A quick reminder of what the rest of 2017 holds for us as a community.

First of all what isn’t happening. There are no ‘regular’ meetings on Sunday 24th or 31st December in Bracknell or Sandhurst. Please take the opportunity to be refreshed, to be with family and friends and to get ready for all that is going to be happening in 2018.

On Christmas Eve we’ve got two meetings in Bracknell.

At 4pm we’ve got our family nativity which is always so much phone. There will be carols, live animals including a donkey, a photo booth and lots of fun, laughter and celebration. A great way to get ready for Christmas Day,

Then at 11pm we’ve got our ever popular ‘unplugged’ carol concert. This is a brilliant opportunity amidst all the busyness of this season to stop and reflect on what it’s really all about - it’s one of my favourite meetings of the year!

Then at 10am on Christmas Day we’re meeting for an hour at 10am in both Brackenll, and for the first time in Sandhurst too. This is a great indication of the growing strength of our Sandhurst community.

On Christmas Day we always take up an offering for an organisation outside of Kerith, and this year it will be for Tehila Trust and all the amazing work Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam are doing to make children safer in Zambia. You can give cash and cheques on the day, but if you’d like to do a direct bank transfer instead just mark it as ‘Chrsitmas Day Offering’ and we’ll make sure it ends up in the right place.

Whoever you are for Christmas I pray you find time to draw close to Christ in the midst of it all.

Much love,

Simon
