Services on 26 December, 7.30 and 9.15
Being the last services of the year we provide an opportunity to look back on the year and to look towards the New Year. During these services members of the congregation will be invited to share their reflections and hopes for 2022. (No sermon will be sent out or put on YouTube that Sunday)
Final Word Bishop Nkosinathi Ndwandwe:
“Christmas Wishes and a Prosperous New Year
I would like to wish you all the family of the Diocese of Natal, including Clergy, laity, Diocesan Guilds, Institutions, and all members of Diocesan Committees a blessed and joyous Christmas. May we all experience the love and peace of Christ during this time of great mystery, whereby God emptied himself and chose to dwell among us fragile as we are as human beings.
I also wish you a happy and prosperous New year. May God protect you and your families from all the snares of the evil one.
Yours in Christ
Bishop Nkosinathi Ndwandwe”
