Jesus’s Birthday Bash

We, at Open Door and All:Starz, celebrated the birth of Jesus on Sunday 17th December.

We welcomed everyone with a glass of mulled wine or juice, chocolate biscuits and mince pies. William Partridge-Underwood led our festivities with some traditional carols, cracker pulling and a treasure hunt.

We sang the Christmas song ‘Show me the way to shine for Jesus’ to the tune ‘ Show me the way to Amarillo’! We were challenged to say the first thing that came into our heads when the word Christmas was said.

There were several  differing answers, presents, mince pies, food, stress , carols and Jesus.

We were reminded that Jesus was the present that God gave for us all, Immanuel - God with us, to be the Saviour of the world because we have all done and said things that we should not and need God’s grace and forgiveness.
