You’ve probably heard of the family in Latchford that have lost everything in a house fire, there will be a special collection for them this morning, there is a collection plate on the pulpit table.  There is also a Just Giving page and New Song have put out a plea as they have nothing  –  no clothes, furniture, bedding  –  literally everything has been lost.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Joy to the world – the Lord has come

As a baby’s cry pierced the cold dark air over 2,000 yrs ago, it signalled the start of something wonderful, love had been born, the Angels sang ‘peace on earth, goodwill to all’

As the clock strikes midnight – 25th Dec 2018 we enter another Christmas Day, where we are reminded of the love of God in the guise of a baby, who grew to be man full of compassion, mercy and love. He changed the world as he challenged injustice and poverty of the body and soul. Today we long for peace on earth and pray that this day love, peace and hope will rule in our hearts and in the world.

Latchford Methodist Church wish you a very happy Christmas, in all your celebrations remember the Christ Child a gift to the world who still changes lives.

‘Joy to the world the Lord has come
let earth receive her King.
let every heart prepare him room
and heaven and nature sing.’

Merry Christmas
