The Bethlehem Story
Christmas is coming early to King’s this year, with our season of carol services starting in just a few days. Rehearsals are in full flow and I have had a sneak preview of some of the content – as always, our creative team have done a fantastic job. This year, The Bethlehem Story reminds us that throughout scripture God chooses those who are on the margins, those who are overlooked or rejected, to fulfill His purposes. We see it in the stories of Joseph, of David and ultimately in Jesus – a baby born in a stable, who brings salvation to the world.
The carol services are a great opportunity to invite your family, friends and neighbours to come along to hear the Christmas message. If you haven’t done so already, why not call, text or knock on their door now - who knows, maybe this could be the year that someone you invite takes a step towards Jesus?
This Sunday, 4th December, we have four services to choose from at the Catford site (9.30am, 11.30am, 5.00pm and 7.30pm) and three on the Downham site (9.30am, 11.30am and 5.00pm), with normal services happening at the usual times at the Beckenham and Lee sites. The following Sunday, 11th December, it will be the turn of our Lee (10.30am and 5pm) and Beckenham (5pm) sites (normal service at Catford and Downham that week). More details can be found here. I intend to be at most of them, and I look forward to seeing you there.
