St John’s Weekly Bulletin – Sunday 1 January 2017

“Joy to the world! The Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King!”

Every blessing of this season to you and those you love!

Many thanks to those who so willingly volunteered to help in the services we offered this year. I really appreciated how many people offered to do a range of different task across our four Christmas services. This made it much easier to plan rosters – all due to people’s willingness to serve visitors to our church.

I’m looking foward to worshipping with you next Sunday – only one service at 10.45am this week. Please RVSP as soon as you can!

Blessings, Murray
