A very warm welcome to this service, wherever you are worshipping across the Langtree Team ministry area this morning. A special welcome if you are visiting friends and family, or are with us for the first time. May the peace and joy of Jesus Christ be with you all.
Do pop into Checkendon Village Hall next Saturday morning (2nd December) for a coffee and a mince pie, courtesy of Checkendon Church. It is a lovely chance to catch up with friends old and new, and perhaps escape the pressure of weekend tasks for half an hour!
Further ahead, all the Christmas services around the Team are now posted on the Team website: www.langtreechurches.org and can also be found at www.achurchnearyou.com. Please do plan ahead and consider who you are going to invite to church with you this year. Christmas is the best time of the year to bring someone to church!
Lastly, please book your tickets for the Oxford University Jazz Orchestra, who are visiting Checkendon on 26th Jan 2018. Last year’s concert sold out before Christmas, and this “one last time” will be your best opportunity to hear some top class jazz musicians in a local venue. Tickets are £20 including supper, from Honor on firstname.lastname@example.org – Don’t delay – you won’t be disappointed.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, and give you peace.
Your Rector Canon Kevin Davies
