Christmas Crackers!

We’ve had a fabulous morning- people arrived early to set up lunch, so many people worked hard to make the service so special – especially the children’s nativity, and the mega-cracker pulling, and Paul operating the PC with his usual panache. And the jacket potatoes, selection of fillings and delicious desserts were brilliant, and served with joy and laughter by our fabulous young people.

2014 NATIVBITY AND LUNCH

And we sang one of my favourite Rend songs [thanks, Bob!]

Come set Your rule and reign in our hearts again.
Increase in us we pray. Unveil why we're made.
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
like wildfire in our very souls.
Holy Spirit, come invade us now.
We are Your church. We need Your power in us.

We seek Your kingdom first. We hunger and we thirst.
Refuse to waste our lives, for You're our joy and prize.
To see the captive hearts released.
The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace.
We lay down our lives for Heaven's cause.
We are Your church.We pray revive this earth.

Build Your kingdom here. Let the darkness fear.
Show Your mighty hand. Heal our streets and land.
Set Your church on fire. Win this nation back.
Change the atmosphere, build Your kingdom here.We pray.

Unleash Your kingdom's power, reaching the near and far.
No force of Hell can stop Your beauty changing hearts.
You made us for much more than this!
Awake the kingdom seed in us!
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ.
We are Your church. We are the hope on earth.

Build Your kingdom here. Let the darkness fear.
Show Your mighty hand. Heal our streets and land.
Set Your church on fire. Win this nation back.
Change the atmosphere. Build Your kingdom here!We pray!

We are Your church. We are the hope on earth. We pray!

  1. It was indeed a lovely morning Angela. A wonderful nativity service with excellent songs and fellowship. The meal was superb as was the company and fun. You all worked so hard and the the young people did a fantastic job. I returned home feeling quite festive and we decorated our tree.
