We always try our best at Stanley Road to celebrate Christmas in a memorable way, giving people of all ages a chance to remember the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable in Bethlehem.
The Bible says that God has loved the world so much that He has given us his own son. Jesus born with a mission, to rescue us and bring us back into relationship with God. That's why we celebrate.
And it's why this year's theme is 'The Gift'. At Christmas time, we spent such a lot of time (and money) thinking about getting gifts for our friends and family. Let's not forget that by sending his son, Jesus, to be born as a fragile baby, God is giving us the greatest gift of all! That's a message not just for Christmas, but for all year round.
You would be welcome to join us at any of the services over Christmas period. We hope to see you soon.
