From the Holyford Mission Community Ministry Team


Advent and Christmas is a time of travelling for many, for the distribution of gifts and reunion of families and friends and we wish all safety in their journeys and joyful encounters with those they visit and host.

Advent itself is a time of travelling, even if not in terms of distance, but in our readings we reflect on the journey of God’s people in preparation for the coming of the Messiah and it is an opportunity for us to examine our own journey of faith as we prepare to greet the Christ child once more.

At Christmas we remember the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the Shepherds visiting the stable, the visit of the wise men and the flight of the Holy family into Egypt.

In our Mission Community we begin a journey as we welcome Steven and his family and look forward to his ministry amongst us.

Through all our ‘travelling’ we wish you all a joyful and peaceful Christmas Season and may that continue into the New Year that lies beyond.

Charles, Colin, Emma, Jan, Jeremy, John, Linda, Nigel, Steven and Victoria
