@stmargarets December 2017
Christmas is a time of wonder. The story of the birth of Jesus Christ grips the imagination of children. But even more wonderful is the meaning of the story, the message for people of all ages - summed up in a name given in the Bible to describe Jesus - "Emmanuel" - which means - God is with us./ The great wonder we Christians celebrate is the coming of Christ,/ the chosen one, the one sent by God to live our life, to share our life,/to become one of us, to share our lot.
At St. Margaret's this Christmas time, we invite you to Share the Wonder! to celebrate the
story, and also to come to Jesus, and find the love and the glory of God in him.
In the four weeks before Christmas, the season of Advent helps us ///prepare to celebrate Christ's birth and also to consider who he is
///and what part he plays in our future.
We begin the season of Advent with a meditation in music and
Bible readings on Sunday December 3rd at 3 pm.
The service will be followed at 4 p.m. by a full Choral Evensong.
The Advent study group meets on Wednesdays, 6th, 13th and 20th of December starting at 8 pm. Called "Exploring the Beatitudes" it looks
at Jesus' teaching in Matthew chapter 5, verses 1 - 12.
A multi-media course led by Fr. Andrew.
New for 2017 - Jam Tots !
We have launched a new group for pre-school children and their parents and carers on Fridays. The activities begin at 10 a.m. in the Church,Centre (attached to the Church) for an hour of play, music and story-time, all with a Christian flavour!
Please tell any young mums that you know about Jam Tots
and please pray for the Jam Tots team - Marjorie, Dee, Mary/and Father Andrew.

Focus on Giving
Although we have seen some exciting growth in our ministry with children, we are facing difficulty meeting our normal commitments. We have a projected shortfall of £4,000 at the end of this year. This is about our on-going commitment in Christ's service to pay our way and build the Christian community at St. Margaret's. For this reason, I am asking you to search your hearts and to respond, if you are committed to Jesus Christ and his Church, by revising your giving, with a target of 5% of income in mind.
Please prayerfully consider how you may be able to help us as together we reach out to our community with the Goodness of Jesus!
‘Each one of you must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.'
(Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7)
