Beginning with our Baptism service on the 1st December where we witnessed 4 individuals make a public declaration of faith, then onto the 8th December which included our wonderful Christmas choir. The 15th December was a highlight for many as Life Kids were involved in much of the service including a fantastic nativity play. The 22nd December was our single biggest event ever as almost 500 crammed into the building to enjoy a Christmas concert with Phillippa Hanna. Christmas Day saw another great gathering as the children showed us their presents and we all reflected on the Christmas story. Then we ended the year and the decade with another special Sunday as two people from our community shared their stories of devotion.
As a Church community we also gave just short of £4000 in our Christmas giveaway. Money that went to support vulnerable families, multiple domestic support centre’s, asylum seekers and refugees and also to help setup a new CAP centre (Christians Against Poverty) starting in Burnley in 2020.
The Life Church family once again demonstrated its welcome, hospitality and generosity during the Christmas season and we were delighted that so many people felt at home at Life Church and came home to Jesus during this period.
We now look forward to an incredible 2020!
