OUR COMMISION FOR 2012 – Go forth from our Church, seek out Christ wherever he may be found, and share the good news with all who bear him no ill will. Bring light to those in thick darkness, a voice to those no one speaks for, and hope to those no one cares for. May God make you a sharer in the promised light, may Christ Jesus fill you with his sense of what is right and may the Holy Spirit be to you like rain that gives life to the fertile earth. We pray for peace and love, to serve the Lord.

INFORMAL COMMUNION – takes place today (Sunday 8th) at 3 o’clock in the Choir Area – all welcome.

INITMATIONS
WELCOME TO OUR WORSHIP TODAY – if you are a visitor you are welcome in our midst, please sign our visitor’s book in the vestibule. Our church has something for all ages and activities go on throughout the week.

Large print copies of the order of service are available from the duty team should you need one.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY – Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds have just experienced the most profound revelation of God’s presence in their lives and in the world. How to they respond? With simple awe and wonder; by giving themselves time to reflect and ponder; by giving the glory to God; any by sharing what happened with others, testifying that God is in-deed with us. But this is just the start. For Mary and Joseph the reality of the vocation to which God has called them is only just becoming clear.

JANUARY LIFE & WORK AND INSPIRE – these are available in the usual places for distributors and those who collect their own copies.

WORSHIP ON THE WEB – our morning services are available on line at http://www.williamwoodparishchurch.org.uk at “Worship on demand”.
