This year’s Christmas theme, Christmas Unwrapped takes its inspiration from a quote in the book How the Grinch stole Christmas by Dr Seuss:
It came without ribbons, it came without tags,
It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before:
“Maybe Christmas”, he thought,
“Doesn’t come from a store?
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
In our Services and events we will explore what that little bit more is, as we hear again the story of that holy night told again.
