FOR

CHRIST CHURCH, ST ANDREW’S AND ST MICHAEL’S         

 

26TH NOVEMBER 2021

                       

Hello everyone!

Lord Jesus, light of the world,

the prophets said you would bring peace and save your people.

Give peace in our hearts in this season of Advent,

and show all the world God’s love. Amen.

I hope you and your families are well. This Sunday, incredibly, we begin the season of Advent, as we look forward to the birth and the coming of Jesus, the light of the world. As we prepare ourselves, and as we look towards Christmas, we say, Come, Lord Jesus.

Amen. Come Lord Jesus.
