Thank you to everyone who was part of our Christmas Eve and Day services. It was wonderful to welcome so many people to St Bart's (around 650 over our four services) to celebrate the amazing news that Jesus is 'God with us'. It was also encouraging that many people requested a copy of Luke's Gospel and exciting to welcome many people who had responded to invitations from St Bart's members (along with invitations received from the Christmas lights). I'm so thankful to God for such an amazing team who give so generously towards our mission to make and mature disciples. I hope and pray that as you continue to celebrate Christmas, that you will have a renewed sense that God has drawn near, desires relationship with us, and loves us even at the greatest cost to himself.
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. (Titus 3:4-5)
