The Christmas Story


At Christmas we remember that over 2000 years ago, Mary gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger (Luke 2:7)

You can read all the Christmas story at

Luke – Chapters 1:5 - 80 & Chapter 2: 1 -40


A Christmas Prayer


Lord God, as we come to you this Christmas time, we thank you for Jesus who came to earth as a little baby.

We thank you for Joseph and Mary’s obedience to you and their willingness to do your will. Help us to be like them this Christmas and to listen to you. Amen
