LIGHT FOR THE DARKNESS
For some Christmas is not easy: loneliness, loss, illness, grief, and anxiety feel at odds with the seemingly relentless good cheer of Christmas. This pain is not just individual and personal – many of us, while fine ourselves, are worried about those we love. And the world aches everywhere. Light for the Darkness is a space in which we can bring our personal and collective pain to God, trusting in his comfort and mercy, and opening ourselves and the world to the transforming power of his love. We hold the pain in the light of the hope of Christ.
A prayer station will be open in St Alphonse Church all day and you are invited to drop in at your convenience and leave a prayer in the manger. At 19:00 we will have a quiet prayer service at St Alphonse.
Light for the Darkness is an ecumenical service offered together with offered the Anglican Community and All Nations Church.
