Carols Around the Tree 2015

This year Carols under the tree was completely different. Apart from pictures appearing on our front wall, we had a brass quartet called Completely Different. They are a group based in Felixstowe that are involved in a larger over 50's Ipswich based brass ensemble.

It was nice to see quite a few people come out to sing on a mild winter evening, and there were mince pies and hot drinks afterwards.

Mark reminded us that Christmas was a good news time as we remember the birth of God's Son, Jesus. To some people, any sort of religion is bad news, but sadly for half the population, Jesus at Christmas is no news at all even if they know a little of the nativity story. Christmas in 2015 is another opportunity for people to know that Christ-mas is really good news for everyone because in Jesus, God offers each person the gift of forgiveness, life and hope as we come to know Him.
