Christmas

Christmas – December 25th

Christmas is the time when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. You can read about the story of His birth in the Bible. Advent is the build up to Christmas and starts four Sunday’s before Christmas. The first Sunday of Advent marks the start of a New Year in the Christian calendar.

Here are some of the ways we celebrate Christmas in LUFC:
