You are not alone if you are drawn to the possibility of attending a church service over the Christmas period. We hear carols mixed with Christmas soundtracks whilst shopping, mixed in with TV adverts or over the car radio from December day one, However, it’s really special to hear and take part in singing them within a church setting through the retelling of the Christmas story.
Like many songs we sing in church the words are not only a personal comfort, but also prayers for the world we live in…
“Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay close by me for ever, and love me, I pray.” – Away In A Manger
So dear reader, whether you choose to (or not to) attend any of our listed services below, the leadership team at Mossley Methodist would like to send you their wishes through the words of another famous carol…
“Good tidings we bring to you and your kin. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
Blue Christmas, Wednesday 18th of December at 7pm
Carols by Candlelight, Sunday 22nd of December at 6.30pm
Christmas Eve, Watch Night Service, Tuesday 24th of December at 11pm
Christmas Morning Family Service, Wednesday 25th of December at 10am
Mossley Methodist continues to support the Newtownabbey Methodist Mission with their annual Gift Appeal, helping families in need at Christmas.
A new toy or game (for ages between 0 to 14) will be gladly received as part of next Sundays service, December 1st. Just place your gift unwrapped and under the tree at the front of the church.
ALSO if buying a present proves difficult, then maybe you would prefer donating to The Voucher Scheme. A NMM donation box will be provided to place your enveloped money gift. These donations will go towards buying gas & electricity vouchers for a family in Greater Newtownabbey this Christmas.
Many thanks in advance for your kindness and continued unwavering response!
