Blue Christmas Service

Thursday 20th December at 6:30pm

God of mercy and love, we gather here as hurting people, bringing our pain, our sorrow, and our confusion to this safe space tonight.  Would You meet us here in our darkness, and give us freedom to struggle together as we seek Your presence. We ask for strength for today, courage for tomorrow, and peace for the past.  In Jesus name we pray.  Amen.

For some people, Christmas is a time of personal sadness. So this special low-key service brings the Christmas story in a more reflective and intimate style.  Rev Mike will lead this shorter service which will last for approximately 40 minutes

The Scripture Reading :

  • John 1:1-15

The Hymn :

  • In the bleak mid-winter

The service will feature a liturgy of remembrance, and also the opportunity for everyone to light an individual candle of remembrance.
