Bishop Paul’s Advent & Christmas Message 2022
In Bishop Paul's Advent & Christmas message for 2022, against the backdrop of a difficult year for many across the world and closer to home, he speaks about how "fear may stalk in the darkness of our sorrow and sadness or our uncertainties about the future, but it need not overwhelm us because the light of Christ, the Everlasting Light, shines in the darkness and his perfect love can cast out all fear."
A prayer for the new King
Everlasting God, we pray for our new King. Bless his reign and the life of our nation. Help us to work together
