Christmas Services

We started off our Christmas carol services on 16th December ‘18 with an afternoon of singing at Mullaghfarne and hearing the Christmas message.  Every child from the Children’s Church took part in the wonderful Children’s Church Carol Service, on Sunday 23rd December. They presented a very entertaining ‘The Nativity Story’ with many of the children dressing up together.  The children were not the only ones who got into the Christmas spirit of dressing up , with leaders playing the part of the angel, donkey and Bethlehem people (much to the amusement of the children!).  It was great to see so many children and young people playing their part in sharing the Christmas story.  Later than evening, we had our Carols by Candlelight service which was very much enjoyed.

 

Christmas Eve marked our first Christmas communion where we came together to worship God and partake in midnight communion.  On Christmas morning, families came together (and children brought along their presents to show us what they had received) to worship God and reflect on the greatest present of all time, that is the gift of Jesus Christ and all he done for us through his life, death and resurrection.
