This year we’re hosting two great opportunities to come and celebrate Christmas with our church. We’d love you to join us on Christmas eve for a community Christmas lunch, and on Christmas morning for a service which will unpack a lesser known version of the Christmas story from the Bible – ‘The Christmas Dragon’.

Christmas Morning Service – “The Christmas Dragon”
The Bible is a book filled with all sorts of interesting types of writing. The book of Revelation (Ch 12) describes the coming of Jesus from an unseen spiritual viewpoint. Jesus came into a world where evil happens and things are often not as they should be. Lots of us feel the weight of the evil in the world, whether it’s because we’re in a hard spot ourselves, or because we see what’s happening on the news every night. Revelation describes Jesus coming into this sort of world, where an evil dragon was waiting for him. The dragon represents Satan, and the evil in our world.
The good news of Christmas, however, is that Jesus didn’t just come as an innocent baby. He came as the dragon slayer. On Christmas morning this year we’ll unpack why this means Christmas is good news for us as we face a world that isn’t as it should be. The slayer of evil has come!
Our service will include carols, prayer, a short talk, and fun content for all ages and is followed by a free morning tea with barista made coffee.
- 9-10am, Monday December 25.
- McAuley Community School Hall,
8 Colton Avenue, Hove.
- No cost, no booking or RSVP required.
You can also join us for our regular Sunday service on December 17, where we’ll sing more carols and unpack Revelation 12 in more detail.
