We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of one of our church members. Simon Tennant died suddenly on Thursday evening. Simon was an active member of our church family for many years, serving as treasurer and singing in the choir amongst many other things. We will miss him immensly, and ask that you hold his wife, Pascale, and daughter, Clara, in your prayers. May he rest in the peace of Christ and rise in His glory.
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
    who will prepare your way”—
3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.’”
Mark 1: 1-3
This Sunday, we celebrate the Second Sunday of Advent, and our virtual service (available from 9h00) includes Christingle Prayers and a special Virtual Nativity performed by some of our Sunday School children. It would be great if as many people as possible could start watching our virtual service together at 10.30am, and join us via Zoom for tea/coffee around 11.15am.
If you would like to make a Christingle Orange during the virtual service, you will need to have the following items ready:
- an orange
- a piece of red ribbon
- four cocktail sticks
- some sweets and/or dried fruit
- a small, thin candle
- a small square of foil 
- plastic bottle lid
