Christmas Letter

God with us.

A huge thank you to everyone who has worked so hard and contributed to all that we have been able to do at St. Matthews during Advent and over Christmastide. All that you have done is really appreciated. You are what makes this church the vibrant Christian community that it is.

As we gather with families and friends to celebrate Jesus’ birth, it is a great time to reflect and share God’s infinite love and Christ’s life-changing message. Sadly, there will be friends, neighbours and others who’ll be spending Christmas on their own, who, in the midst of the all the festivities may feel lonely and isolated. This is an opportunity for us to share the love of God in looking for ways to remember and include them, loving one another as God loves us. Perhaps, there’s someone you know who would value you spending time with them or inviting them round?

Do remember the work of our mission partners, Changing Tunes and the Sisters of the Church, in your prayers as, respectively, they deliver Christmas gifts to prisoners and provide food parcels for those in need.

We wish you and those you love a Very Happy Christmas as we look forward to an exciting New Year in 2018.

With God’s Blessing

Minty and Richard
