Family Carol Service
On Sunday 15th December 2013 we had our Family Carol Service.
The music was excellent and our young people put on a nativity play with a modern twist as the superheroes came looking for the new superhero they had heard about.
We then looked at how Jesus was the ultimate superhero – born as a baby in very humble circumstances; lived amongst the people in a very ordinary way without people knowing who he was; came into a situation that looked hopeless and no one was able to do anything about it; had a strong sense of moral justice; and put himself in danger to save others. And then we saw how the biggest difference between Jesus and every other superhero is that whereas all the others are fantasies – only there in comics and films – Jesus is for real – he really did complete his mission to save the world, and we can directly benefit from that by putting our trust in him.
