Christmas 2018 at APEC

It’s great to spend Christmas with family and friends, and while technology allows us to video call those who are far away, it’s no substitute for having them physically with us. The great message of Christmas is that God hasn’t stayed at a distance in human history, but chose to send his Son Jesus to be born as a baby, and live amongst the human race He created. Born not in a palace fit for a king but a dirty stable in a nowhere town. The implications for us and our lives on earth are huge! We’d love you to join us this year as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the timeless Nativity story, and explore what it means for us to have God with us in our lives.

Our Christmas programme for 2018 is detailed in the attached document.   Please come and visit us and enjoy this special season together.
