Children's Hospice

One of the main fundraising activities this year is the £37 Jingle Box Challenge - £37 because that is the cost of one hour of specialist community care for a child with a life threatening or life limiting condition.

From the President's Desk

Happy Advent everyone! I’m taking this opportunity to launch the Christmas version of my Presidential logo. Steven Forbes and I have changed ‘God is our Adventure’ to ‘God’s Great Adventure’ and replaced the Methodist Orb and Cross with a nativity scene. Advent is the time to prepare for Christmas by remembering the preparations for our Lord’s coming into the world in a remarkable way all those years ago - and that he will return to this world in a quite different but no less remarkable way at some point in the future. So this Advent I’m focussing on God’s Great Adventure and thinking and sharing along the lines of: God’s Strategic Messages, God’s Strategic Moments, God’s Strategic Management and God’s Strategic Mind. You are welcome to join me. According to one definition a strategy is “a method or plan chosen to bring about a desired future”. For example; Linda went Christmas shopping in Belfast recently in order to get the present she wanted me to give her for Christmas. May God bless your Advent reflecting, worship and personal devotions - and your strategic preparations for Christmas. #God is our Adventure. Every blessing.
