Ministry Letter - December 2019
An invitation to you this Christmastime to “Follow the Star”!
Once again this year the Church of England theme for the Christmas advertising campaign is "Follow the Star” and the hashtag for social media will be #FollowtheStar.
It’s a very simple concept which obviously draws upon the traditional story of the three kings journey to find the new born baby Jesus and it’s one that is relevant to us today. It may not be that we actually follow a star these days, but hopefully there are other things that draw us to worship Jesus this year. Perhaps you are a regular at church and it will be part of your usual routine. Or maybe you always go to church at Christmastime, maybe attracted by the carols or the nativity. It could be that you haven’t been in a church for many years, or never at all, but feel that you would like to find out more about Christmas, Jesus and just what all the fuss was about on that first Christmas Day and what caused people to follow a star. Whatever your reason, wherever you are on your journey to “Follow the Star” this year, you will find a warm welcome at both of our churches, St Luke’s Willaston and St Mary’s Wistaston. You will find details of our Christmas services elsewhere in this magazine, a variety of services to sing carols, hear the Christmas story and to find out more about the Christian faith in a none threatening way.
May I take this opportunity to wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas.
