Christmas 2013 City Mission

Lights, carols, trees, cold weather, presents, and people smiling on the tube: just some of the indications that Christmas is coming. So what is Christmas? It is the time when we celebrate the greatest gift we have received – the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to dwell among us. We often say that we would also like to give something back to Him at Christmas time....but how do we give a gift to the King of Kings?

"...the King will say ... for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in....Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me" (Matthew 25:

If you would like to minister to the King, to show Him love, please join Coptic City Mission in celebrating Christmas with our friends who are living in the streets. There will be a full day event filled with gifts, games, Christmas carols, and lots of delicious food.

Help is needed with the following tasks:
- Food & Cooking
- Buying and wrapping gifts
- Help with decorating the Church
- Help tidying the Church at the end of the day
And most of all we want you to enjoy spending time with those attending this special day.

If you are able to help with any of these things please contact Marina Abdalla, Eddie Awad or Mina Hanna; or just turn up on the day and get stuck in!
