Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

15 December 2011

This coming Sunday, December 18th, promises to be one of the busiest in MBC’s 2011 calendar. At 10.30am we begin our Nativity Service, and following on from last year’s hugely popular dramatisation of Matthew’s account of Jesus’ birth this year producer/director Haddon Willmer has turned to the Gospel of Luke for his inspiration. With more than thirty people in the cast and the inclusion of a number of new and specially chosen carols, even for the congregation this service promises to be anything but a passive affair.

Meanwhile in the evening it’s our annual Carol Service. With our choir and orchestra leading a time of carols and readings it is hoped that this service will provide us all with a unique opportunity to step in from the cold and to focus our minds on two things: firstly on the wonder and the joy of that first Christmas, and secondly on how what happened in Bethlehem more than two thousand years ago can impact our lives, our community and our world at the close of 2011.

The service begins at 6pm and will be followed by refreshments of mince pies and festive drinks.
