With a new year, comes new hope, buoyed by the news of the Oxford vaccine which promises so much to so many when we need it most. The celebration is, however, dampened by the announcement of a new and more virulent strain of Covid 19 and our being placed in Tier 4. Whilst it brings new restrictions to us all, just when we feel we are perhaps at breaking point, hope shines on the horizon. As you will see below, we are now entering the period of Epiphany, a celebration for the life of Jesus and the arrival of the Magi.
That said, it is our duty to do all we can to continue to protect all those in our community. We have therefore decided, with great regret, to suspend ALL services at Christ Church Hilderstone for the month of January. We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted and we greatly look forward to the day when we can all meet again and celebrate the blessing of our wonderful community here in Hilderstone.
A Celebration of Epiphany at Christ Church Hilderstone
Wednesday 6th January 2021
At a time when there seems so little to celebrate, we have Epiphany, which is the celebration of the arrival of the Magi, or Three Wise Men, to the stable where Jesus was born. Also known as the 12th Day of Christmas, this very special event in the Church’s calendar marks a time of hope and joy. Rev’d Marion Reynolds had hoped to mark this occasion with a special service but sadly we have had to cancel our plans.
On behalf of all at Christ Church, we wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you, like us, celebrate this Epiphany with those you love, and those who love you.
