Last Sunday was Advent Sunday. At the 10.30am service we took our first steps on the ‘Journey to Bethlehem’. Why not share our journey with us?

But who will show us the way to Bethlehem? Perhaps the prophets can?

Who are the prophets? The prophets are men or women, boys or girls who come close to God and God comes close to them. Isaiah was a prophet who listened to and spoke the word of God.

Isaiah said one day the Messiah would be born – “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.”

So stop…watch…pay attention…something incredible is going to happen in Bethlehem.

Join us next Sunday, 8th December, at 10.30am for Celebrate!, our family friendly service, as we take our next steps on the journey to Bethlehem.
