Christmas Greetings

Hi There! It’s hard to imagine that Christmas is already around the corner. The year has flown past, and what a year of joy and pain it has been. I am keenly aware that for some, this year has been difficult. We’ve lost loved ones, we’ve faced traumatic situations, we’ve experienced stress, and we have at times, doubted. As you wind up in your role for the year and look toward next, it is my prayer that you will be able to switch off from the challenges you have faced this year and focus your attention towards celebrating one beautiful part of the big story, the birth of King Jesus.

We are indeed, “Stronger Together”.
