Welcoming communities at Christmas is the subject of a new video broadcast today on the Diocesan website www.derby.anglican.org
Church warden Kat Alldread from St Bartholomew, Clay Cross shares a reflection on how we prepare for Christmas in the three minute video.
She says: “All around people are preparing for Christmas dinners and parties, the streets are decorated and the shops filled with goodies, but as Christians we know Christmas is about more than that. We have the real Christmas story, the story of Jesus of coming to be with us and it’s for us to share with people in our communities.
She continues “Churches throughout the diocese are holding events to welcome their communities into church over Christmas”
A different video will be shown each week in advent featuring people from all around the Diocese and what advent means to them.
