December Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Every year Christmas gives us a great sense of fresh hope and wonder. Jesus’s birth transformed the world: it changed lives, and continues to change us. He was born in the humblest and most unlikely circumstances, in a stable surrounded by animals. Jesus is the living hope that God is with us, through thick and thin. Jesus is the Christmas gift of God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. Jesus is the light of the world, shining through the darkest darkness, and keeping alive that flicker of hope and joy which can never be extinguished. The Christmas story reminds us that even if we are afraid, we too can experience a renewed sense of hope and joy. So lets celebrate the wonderful news together!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas.

God Bless,

Revd Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
