for Advent Sunday
BRING AND SHARE LUNCH
It’s everyone together on Sunday – first for our service, then for some food.
And when the food is gone, it will be time to decorate the tree!
Make a thank offering to God and a Christmas gift to St Barnabas.
Be generous and take advantage of the offer to match fund your gift pound for pound.
Give £1 and it will become £2.
Give £10 and it will become £20.
Give £250 and it will become £500.
Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence
in so many parts of the world.
It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.
Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace –
peace that passes our understanding
but changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
