A Christmas Visit
Christmas is a lonely time for many. This year, with restrictions on travel and gatherings, there are likely to be many more in our community who feel alone.
We’d love to reach out to our neighbours and tell them that they are NOT alone. The thought behind “A Christmas Visit” is really simple: we’d love to visit those around us who are lonely. We’ve produced a load of postcards with “A Christmas Visit” on the front, and on the back a space to write a short message and an invitation to our online Christmas Morning Service.
Here’s how it works:
- Order some cards from the church office (you can do so on Church Center)
- Write a note on the cards saying that you’d love to pop across for a COVID-friendly doorstep visit on or around Christmas Day to wish them “Merry Christmas”. Include your phone number so they can message you.
- Pop over to those who respond positively and say hi and wish them a Merry Christmas sometime between the beginning of Christmas Eve and the end of Boxing Day. Be aware that it’s a doorstep visit, so keep a safe distance and don’t go into their home.
- You might like to mention the Christmas service (there is a link on the card).
And that’s it, really! Super simple, but a way to communicate to people that they’re not alone. Jesus Christ is Emmanuel – God WITH Us!
Do join us in in reaching out in our streets and condo blocks and let’s see what God does!
If you have any questions please pop onto Church Center and fill out the form – you can ask any questions you might have there.
