Peter Olliver (pictured being thanked by yet another few worshippers) delivered a really first class sermon. You can listen to it on our website
and go to the Sermons tab.
At 10am a very obliging donkey turned up with a junior Jesus aboard, and a really welcoming crowd. And Peter preached that sermon all over again, without losing any of what made it so good at 8am.
Palm (ie flax) crosses made by Vivienne James and Ngaire Newman were handed out after both service, and others were taken to a local rest home. You can read a bit about what the story is with Palm crosses on our website. Go to the News tab, then News and Events and then download the pew news for 9 April.
It's all a prelude to this coming weekend - Easter. This is the most important celebration of the Christian faith, just ahead of Christmas.
Come to our services and find out why! (Check in Pew News (as above) or on the Nativity Facebook page.
