Come and Celebrate Christmas with Us!

peace on earth

Is peace on earth a pipe dream? Wikipedia keeps a running tally of conflicts raging around the world; in 2017 there were 41 wars each resulting in between 100 and 10,000 violent deaths. Some of these wars have been ongoing for decades, growing from centuries-old seeds of division and hatred.

What hope is there for peace?

Two millennia ago, an angel appeared on a Judean hillside and announced the birth of a baby to some humble shepherds. This baby, Jesus, would bring peace on earth.

Peace may seem an impossible dream, but we’d love you to come and spend Christmas with us in God"s presence. Come and experience the peace Jesus offers in the midst of the chaos of our lives and of the world.

 

All Welcome!

Christmas Offering
16 & 25 December

This year we will be giving the Christmas offering received at our Carols by Candlelight and Christmas Day services to London City Mission who exist to serve the church of London in sharing the love of God and the good news of Jesus Christ with the least reached of London – those living in poverty, on the margins of society or from other cultures. The gospel is at the heart of all they do, because London needs Jesus.
