Thanks for visiting this page – whether you received one of our Christmas cards on your doormat, made your way here via social media, or even saw one of our posters up around town.
Some things will be very different this Christmas. But some things will stay the same, Covid or no Covid.
One thing I’m sure we’ll still be doing is giving and receiving gifts. Nothing quite beats the joy of receiving the gift you’ve always wanted – except, of course, the joy of seeing a loved one’s face light up when you give them the gift they’ve always wanted!
The Bible tells us that at the heart of the Christmas message is a gift: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
This is great news: God’s own Son, who was born as a baby at Christmas, was given to us to be our rescuer – so that instead of death and hell, we might receive eternal life.
That’s the best gift of all! So, even though we can’t run our usual Christmas activities this year, we at MEC are offering 4 things to help you unwrap this gift for yourself:
Something to come to: On Sunday 20th December at 7pm, we are running a drive-in carol service at the Mirfield Co-Op car park. This is a FREE event, but pre-booking is essential.
Something to watch: This year our family carol service is going online, via our YouTube channel. Featuring readings and music by members of our church, and a short Christmas message from our pastor.
Something to read: ‘The Gift: What if Christmas gave you what you’ve always wanted?’ is a short, easy to read book exploring God’s gift to us at Christmas. We’re offering a FREE copy to anyone in Mirfield who wants one. Please fill in your details in the form below.
Something to explore: In the New Year, we’re planning to run a course called Christianity Explored via Zoom. Over 7 weeks, this course explores the heart of the Christian faith and gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have. Fill in the form below for more information.
