A Baby Born in a Barn

From the National Office, we say well done for (almost) finishing another year serving the Kingdom of God through offering Christ-centred education to the students in your schools. It is such a privilege to be opening up the world to these young people, showing them that the starting point and end point of all knowing centres around a baby born in a barn 2000 years ago. May you have a relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating Christmas as we celebrate what Jesus has done and look forward to the renewal of all things when he comes again and restores His kingdom.
