Lord Jesus, we thank you that you were born into this world

Help us to love you and to serve you.

We thank you that you came to show us how much you love us.

We thank you that you showed us that all are welcome and important to God

Help us to love you and to serve you.

This Christmas time may we be bold in telling your story May we share the joy of your presence in this world.

Help us to journey to Bethlehem in our hearts.

May we know the peace of Christ child in our hearts and homes. Amen

The offering during this Service will be for the Christian Aid Christmas appeal which this year focuses on Bangladesh and the flood-prone area of Kurigram where 70% of families live in extreme poverty. Working with a local partner, Christian Aid is supporting a community of talented women to set up their own craft related businesses to help their communities.
