Christmas Is… Joy

Date 23rd December 2012  by Ettiene de Witte  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

Christmas Is… Giving

Date 16th December 2012  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 2:1-12

Christmas is a time of giving. Estimates are that Australians will spend $16.2 billion on everything from festive holidays to Boxing Day Sales during Christmas 2012! (Source: Comm Bank). Why?

The Kids@Church children will be presenting the wonderful Christmas story as a play and in song. Christmas has a special appeal with the story of shepherds and wisemen, with stars and angels.
