Christmas 2018

We are tempted to look back on the events of the first Advent and conclude that, well, the people were less sophisticated than today, less scientific and rather more superstitious. So the accounts of Jesus’ birth, which hardly wash today, would have been acceptable then. But, everything in the Hebrew worldview militated against the idea that a human being could be God. Jews would not even pronounce the name ‘Yahweh’ yet alone spell it out. And yet over the course of his life Jesus —by his actions, his claims, and his resurrection — convinced many that he was not just a prophet telling them how to find God, but God himself coming to find them.

This is why we tell the story again, in 2018. This is why we still preach Christ.

 


This Sunday is going to be quite a day in the life of ABC!

Sunday is going to be quite a day in the life of ABC!

In the morning we are thrilled to see three people baptised in obedient response to what God has revealed to them and invited them to do.  We will hear three different stories, spoken by three precious people about one loving heavenly Father.

Straight after this morning’s service will shall be holding a short ‘Special Church Meeting’ to confirm the calling of Andrew Hawksworth to be an ordained minister of ABC.

Then on Sunday evening, at 6.30pm it’s our annual carol service in which we gather as a church community around warm mince pies and hot drinks, to celebrate the love of God to us. Friends and family are especially welcome
