As we continue through this advent season we are really looking forward to what will be a different Christmas this year. Videos are now coming in for our advent series, our online nativity, and Carol Service; with lots of you getting involved. We had a lot of fun recording our Carol and worship service last week. Hopefully the Joy and sense of worship will be evident when we share the service together. Please feel free to invite family and friends to these services. The nativity and Carol Service in particular will be great events for family and friends.

Advent reminds us of our lifestyle of Hope
As we heard from John yesterday our hope is in God and His promises not in the problems or even solutions of this life. During advent we often consider hope and expectation. The great season of looking ahead to the God who came and the God who will come again. However for me this isn’t a season of hope rather it is a reminder of the lifestyle of hope we have available to us from the God of hope! In this advent season of hope may the God of hope fill you with permanent, glistening hope, and empower you to live a prophetic lifestyle of Hope in His promises.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Love & Blessings
