On Sunday 4th January, we will anticipate the Feast of The Epiphany (6th January). The word Epiphany means “manifestation”, that is the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. In Roman Catholic and Protestant churches this means we enjoy celebrating the physical manifestation of Jesus to the Gentiles with the coming of the Magi (wise men). In the Orthodox tradition, churches commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God.
The wise men from our crib set who have been traveling around the church will be placed in the nativity scene. The 10.00am service will be Family Communion and the children will make crowns. All of us will share the communion together on this feast day.
