Saide Cameron welcomed us to worship on 1st January.  We concluded the season of Christmas with an uncomfortable story from Matthew’s gospel, a story which reminds us that we can’t have the joy without paying attention to vulnerability and suffering, that Jesus placed himself alongside injustice from the beginning.  We welcomed Carlynne Nunn as our preacher and to preside over Holy Communion while Ian is on leave.

Please note that the audio for the livestream begins at 3:44, verse 2 of Joy to the World.
