This very day in David’s town your Saviour was born – Christ the Lord!
Luke 2 verse 11
During 2022 we have been looking daily at the theme of GOOD NEWS as we journeyed with Paul through his letter to the ROMANS
– and pausing at our times of Midday Devotion to pray for others in our church family, our city and our world.
In December, as the year closes, we focus on ADVENT and CHRISTMAS with the Prophets and Matthew and Luke.
We are all encouraged to listen for God’s voice and make our response as we journey together in our ‘rhythm of devotion’
These Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through the day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.
The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information provided fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions which we started as a church family in 2015.

Reflection and Prayer at the end of the day
A Prayer for the Month of DECEMBER
Dear Lord, help us to remember at this time of
Presents and Puddings,
Cards and Chocolates,
Paper hats and Limericks
With all the Glitz of Christmas celebration
That the King of Glory came Humbly into our world.
In Jesus’ name
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be Your Name.
Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory.
Now and for ever
