Sunday 22 12 2019

Retired local minister Rev Martin Camroux led our Service for the morning of the fourth Sunday of Advent 2019. Mindful of the closeness of Christmas Day, Martin began by talking to us about buying and giving gifts, using some items from “The Luxury Guide to Christmas Gifts” as an example. He then went on to focus our thoughts on The Perfect Gift, thinking of how a new baby is a very special gift, and particularly of Jesus being born as a baby to Mary and Joseph.

 

You can hear his sermon here.
