Our fabulous Carol service is on Sunday 21st December at 7pm. There will be marvellous music, candlelit wonder and plenty of festive cheer. If you want postcards to invite your friends, neighbours or workmates, you can pick some up at church on Sunday. Be on time to guarantee a seat!
Each year we like to mark the season of Advent with a creative project. And this year we are working on a visual presentation of our favourite lines from Christmas Carols, text overlaid on beautiful or provocative images. There will be one each day running up to Christmas.
You can follow it on our Instagram page. There is still time to get involved – email Gabby (our intern) if you want to participate or to submit your idea. Email her the image and the text separately and she will format it.
And if you would like to post your own use hashtag #cotcadvent
Heavenly Father you hold our lives in your hands.
Who we were, who we are and who we are becoming.
This church has been a place where we have grown
in knowledge and love of you, and learned to serve.
Grant us joy in what has been, grace for our regrets,
peace in our fears and joy in what you will make us.
May we see your kingdom come in this city
and build your church to be a light in the darkness,
and a home in the wilderness.
May we plant seeds that grow to bless others
and leave the city more beautiful than we found it.
