Christmas at DBC

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us!

The Bible readings for Christmas Day are Isaiah 52.7-10; Psalm 98; Hebrews 1.1-4. John 1.1-14.

There is surely no better thing to do on Christmas morning than to gather with followers of Jesus and hear John 1.1-14 read. Happy Christmas everybody!

Christmas slide-show

A few photos have come in of this year’s Christmas services at Didsbury Baptist Church. I have put some of them together in the slide-show below. Many thanks to Anna and Steve for the photos.

The Word became flesh

Happy Christmas to all our readers!

The Bible readings for Christmas day include: Isaiah 52.7–10; Psalm 98; Hebrews 1.1–4 [5–12]; John 1.1–14.   I love the John reading for Christmas morning. Although our all-age service at Didsbury Baptist Church will be light and fun, I will still take a few minutes to read John 1.1–14. For me, it simply would not be Christmas without it.

And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.

I think it was William Temple who said, ‘Christianity is the most materialistic of all religions’. He must have had the Incarnation in mind. Through it we learn that God cares about the whole person.

Through the incarnation we  learn what God is like. If you want to know what God is like, they say, take a look at Jesus.

Christmas all-age festival service

If you are not already worshiping elsewhere and you are near Didsbury tomorrow (Sunday), why not come and join us for our Christmas all-age festival service? We will light Advent candles, watch a children’s nativity play, sing some carols, take up an offering of goods for Lifeshare, listen to readings from the Bible and pray together. Come as you are and worship with us – all are welcome. The service begins at 10.30 a.m. and should last for about an hour. There will be tea and coffee afterwards.
