A stable of hope in an unstable world

‘So the Word (Jesus, God’s Son) became human and made his home among us.’ (John 1:14 in the Bible)

At Christmas, Christians celebrate that over 2000 years ago God stepped into history – when Jesus was born in a Bethlehem stable, in poverty and obscurity. In so doing, God demonstrated that he wants to be with us, to keep company with us, sharing our joys and sorrows, our hopes and fears.

God loves us so much that, in Jesus, he came to be with us, so we can have hope in our unstable world.

We wish you a happy Christmas and invite you to join us at our celebrations.

Revd Pippa Goldring (Associate Minister)
and everyone at Holy Trinity Church

This Christmas message and an invitation to our Christmas services is being delivered to homes around the parish in our church Christmas card. You are welcome to join us over Christmas or at any time.
