Carol Service and ‘Bring a Friend’ Sunday December 17th 10:30 a.m.: The Scripture readings tell the story of Christmas, starting with the Old Testament prophecies; in between these readings we sing carols – plenty of them! – so, if you like the carols of Christmas, this is the service for you. This is a ‘bring-a-friend’ service, so please invite friends or family members who do not normally go to church; the service will be structured with them in mind. There are invitations on the table in the foyer for anyone who would like to give one to a friend.

When Christmas Hurts’ Wednesday December 20th 7:00 p.m.
Christmas is not a happy time for everyone. This service is designed to provide comfort and healing; it will be held in cooperation with St. Patrick’s and Crosslife Church and will be @ St. Margaret’s.

If you would like to donate any new or gently used items to the Bissell Centre, please bring them to church and put in the blue bin in the foyer.

Thank you to Kathi Kilgour and the group ‘Fabric Artisans for Christ’, of which she is a member, for making the new angel banner. The banner is based on a pattern designed by artist Vera Velleman of Halifax NS.

Eva Thompson once again organized a wonderful Christmas concert. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we raised approximately $1700 for World Vision’s Raw Hope initiative.

Please join us for our Christmas services:
Sunday December 24th (Christmas Eve):
10:00 am Holy Communion for the 4th Sunday of Advent
4:00 pm Informal Holy Communion for Families. The first part of the service will include a Children’s pageant, and much of it will be led by our children and youth. We hope that our families with children will find this a good service to attend.
