“Blue Christmas/Longest Night Service”
December 21, 2022 -7.00 PM
Though Christmas is a joyous occasion, it can be a hard one for some people, especially for those who are grieving the loss of a dear one or a loss of a job or for some other reason. This service is especially designed for those who are grieving. Last year only a couple of people came and we could not have the service as we had planned it. Hence, if you wish to attend this service or want to invite neighbours or friends having a tough time to attend, please let Rev’d Alwin or the office know by Wednesday – December 14th so as to help us make proper arrangements.
