Christmas 2021

No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, ​ who is close to the Father’s heart,​ who has made him known.

John 1.18


Our Christmas theme this year is At the Heart of Christmas. The theme is an invitation to everyone to discover – or rediscover – the good news of God’s saving love as revealed in the birth of Jesus. It is also a challenge to each of us to ponder in our hearts – as Mary did – what the extraordinary events of the first Christmas might mean for us now and in the years ahead.
