Hopefully, by now you are aware of the fact that we are having a Christmas meal, here at St Paul’s on Christmas Day at 12pm! This is a free meal (although donations are welcome) which is open to…ANYONE AND EVERYONE!

We want to encourage as many of you as possible to come down and get involved… Christmas is a wonderful time when we celebrate the birth of Jesus! We celebrate the willingness of God to come down to Earth in human form and be “God with us”. It has also become a great time to gather and celebrate with family and friends!

Not have many family members around here and want to be able to enjoy Christmas dinner with good company? This is for you!

Not able to afford (with either money or time) to purchase and cook a Christmas meal for yourselves and your family? This is for you!

Plenty of family, able to afford it but would like to celebrate this incredible time with your wider church family? This is for you!

In Matthew, Jesus said that those he judges to be blessed by His Father will be those who fed him when he was hungry and gave him a drink when he was thirsty and this is a great opportunity for us as a church to do just that! Of course, many of us have our own Christmas routine which is great and you can be involved even if you can’t come along on the day. Perhaps you would like to help financially towards the meal? Or assist Greg with some of the preparation on Christmas Eve?  Or by simply spreading the word (especially to those in need this Christmas) that this is happening.

For those who would like to come and eat with us on Christmas Day please tell Kirsty today or call Felicity in the office and put your name down. If you would like to help with either the preparation of the meal or support us in funding this event, please let Greg know.

Merry Christmas!
