LETTER: A Christmas thought

It’s such a busy time of year isn’t it… presents to buy, the Christmas dinner to sort out, school events to attend.

So, in the middle of this hectic season, can we challenge ourselves to find some time to reflect on what Christmas is all about? There are plenty of opportunities in Horsham and District for this… next Saturday you are very welcome to come and share with Horsham Churches Together as we tell the story of Christmas in a Family Nativity Trail around Horsham town centre – a chance to meet the Christmas story characters – and to join in with Carfax Bandstand carols including a Children’s Musical Nativity and a Carol Service at the end of the afternoon.

Elsewhere in this newspaper there are adverts for Carol Services and Crib Services at various Churches to which you would be very welcome. Do take the time to stop and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
