Christmas Day @ MBC

26 December 2017

Ever wondered what the ten least wanted Christmas gifts are? Well if you’d have been with us on Christmas morning you would now know that in 2017 whilst novelty socks and star wars characters both figure highly however, at number ten comes a spiralizer (seemingly a devise that turns fresh veggies into spirals and faux-noodles (zoodles) whilst at number one THE most unwanted present of 2017 is… a selfie stick!

However, as Shona was quick to say talking about unwanted presents on Christmas Day was not the reason why we were there, and that’s because in Jesus God had given us all a gift which even in our wildest dreams none of us could ever have wished for.

During the Service our prayers were led by the Thompson family, and under the leadership of Ethan Dodd our band brought us a batch of brilliantly and freshly arranged songs both old and new.

As always we closed with O Come All Ye Faithful, complete of course with the battery of final verse party poppers. 

Once again this was a true service of celebration; the day we mark the coming of our Saviour. It was also the day that Terefe (pictured below with his family and Graham) celebrated his birthday!

However, we also were reminded that amid all the joy and the laughter, for some Christmas 2017 was a particularly hard time and that they especially should be the focus of our prayers.  

There’s a link here to a YouTube video of O Come All Ye Faithful and below that you’ll find a gallery of pictures which if you click on will enlarge.
