TabernacleYou, and your family, are invited to join us for a very special Christmas service on Sunday 16th December, 10:30am

Back in September, our church celebrated the biblical festival of Tabernacles. We held a drumming workshop, a cinema night and on the Sunday morning we built a ‘tabernacle’ in church. Loosely following the relevant scriptures, we built a flimsy frame and covered it with cloths and fresh branches before decorating it with fruit and ornaments. It has stood at the front of the upstairs hall ever since. The Zumba fitness classes have seen it every week, as have the Dream Dance children and everyone who attends our weekly worship services.

Originally, we learnt that it was a place to share God’s love and joy with our family, friends as well as the strangers among us. As each Sunday has passed, the tabernacle has become slightly more forgotten, forlorn and dishevelled.

At our morning service at 10.30am on Sunday 16th December, we are going to ‘rediscover’ the tabernacle.  We are going to invite our entire congregation to enter the tiny tabernacle and discover the meaning of the famous words in the gospel of John:

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” John 1:14

Please come and join us as we open up our tabernacle and tell the Christmas story in an immersive service that you will never forget!
