Friday 18th - Thursday 24th December
The Narnia Experience, in person

We've added extra dates on 27th and 28th December

This Christmas we are going to share the good news of Jesus by using CS Lewis' classic children's story, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. We will be transforming the main auditorium into the magical world of Narnia. The auditorium doors will become the doors of the wardrobe and once you've stepped through those you'll be taken round a series of stations depicting the story of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and at each stage you'll be encouraged to reflect on the way the Gospel message is creatively told through the story of Narnia.

This year our Christmas celebrations may feel like they're surrounded by gloom and darkness. The Covid pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives and has made the future look very uncertain. Some may be anxious about their job. Others feel lonely, or depressed. And others may be worried about their health, or the brevity of life. Whatever it is that you might be facing this Christmas we want you to know that there is a light that can pierce through all this darkness, and bring you hope. Jesus Christ!
The Bible describes Christ's birth as being like the arrival of light into a dark world:
"The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world" John 1: 9
God sent his Son into this world to be our Saviour. He came to bring light into our darkness and offer us hope.
Jesus came to die on a cross for our sins and failures - dealing with the darkness inside each and every one of us - so that we might be forgiven and brought into a relationship with God. Jesus rose from the dead and is alive, and he alone can offer us eternal life with Him, so that death need not be feared - He offers us His light and life, to shine into all our dark areas!
Jesus invites you to come to him with your worries and concerns, so that he might give rest to the weary and burdened and fill you with his hope and peace. However dark your world may feel right now, there remains a light that still shines in the darkness!
Jesus said: "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
Perhaps this Christmas will be different for you, perhaps it will include Jesus - He is the only way out of the darkness.
