Our theme at all our Christmas events this year will be “Home For Christmas.” For many people, Christmas is sentimentally associated with home and family but for millions of others, the celebrations are a stark reminded of alienation and homelessness. For Christians, our focus is on Jesus who left his home in glory to make his home with us and through his death and resurrection to take us to a new home with him for ever.
