You might not have noticed, but on Sunday we celebrated Hope! But not just any old hope, we were celebrating the fact that Hope entered the world through Jesus Christ.
Our two carol services were great events, with over 600 people attending the two services. It was great to see that people from all walks of life are impacted by the message of hope, as this video shows:
If you’re wondering what the red balloons are all about, Martin shed some light on this, suggesting that hope is something we need to keep hold of, but also can give away to someone else. Hope isn’t just for us, but it’s for everyone around us.
Two of the biggest stars of the Carol Service were undoubtedly Josh and Misha Haller for their great newsroom videos, bringing to life the Christmas story through the eyes of the shepherds and wisemen; showing what they were hoping for at the time.
A huge thank you to everyone who was involved in any way, it was a big task but had great results! A very special thank you also needs to go to Sam Hunt and Tom Whitbread for producing those videos and the others and of course Tim May for building the HOPE stage.
But it’s not over yet, we still have time to celebrate in our Christmas services, this Sunday 9am and 11am, Christmas Day 10:30am and on the 28th December, with one service at 10:30am. We hope to see you there!
