Why did Matthew begin his account of Jesus’ life in this way, when he had a blank sheet (or scroll) in front of him?

As we look forward to Christmas, please come and join us as we ponder what it means for Jesus to be the Messiah, why it matters that Jesus is the son of David, the son of Abraham. Together we will be in awe of our God who is with us; Immanuel!

On Christmas Eve (Sunday, 24th) we will be joining with St Barnabas Anglican Church (corner of William and Elizabeth Streets, Croydon) at 4 pm so you might be on your own if you turn up at West Croydon.

Christmas Day though, tear yourselves away from your presents and come to West Croydon United Church at 9AM to celebrate the birth of Jesus, who “will save his people from their sins” (Mt. 1:21).
