Christmas is traditionally the season of joy and goodwill but,
for many, it is also a painful time. It may be the first Christmas
without someone you love; it may be a time when you feel
alone or caught up in a difficult relationship. To all who struggle at this time of year, we invite you to join us on Saturday,
21st December – the longest day of the year – as we take time
and space to acknowledge our sadness, as we come together
with others who are also struggling and as we turn, in an atmosphere of quiet prayer, to the God who loves us and walks with
us. To Him we bring all the feelings of loss, anger,
heartbreak and despair which flood our hearts and threaten to
overwhelm us. In the midst of our pain, we have this comfort:
we are not alone.
The Prayer Service will take place in St. Thomas’ Church,
Jobstown, at 7.30pm on Saturday 21st December.
It will be followed by tea/coffee and refreshments.
All are welcome to come along.
