Christmas Communion

If there are people who are housebound and unable to attend church over Christmas, Fr. Neil is more than happy to bring Holy Communion to them on Christmas Day after the morning services. Please let him know on 928 3342 if that is the case.

Holy Jesus,
to deliver us from the power of darkness
you humbled yourself to be born among us
and laid in a manger.
Let the light of your love
always shine in our hearts,
and bring us at last
to the joyful vision of your beauty,
for you are now alive and reign
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever. Amen
