Carols in New Street Garden & Family Christmas Carol Service
Amazingly, this will be the 9th year that we have had Carols in the New Street Garden. Over the years we have never had to cancel or move it indoors. The Lord has graciously given us fine, cold, clear weather—even when rain or snow has started as we concluded.
And on the 21st December at 5.30 we have our Christmas Carol Service at Rehoboth followed by our Christmas Morning Service starting at 10am.
You may be wondering why the Church, located at the end of a late Victorian street has such an unusual name. Unusual it may be, but in the Bible we find mention of it very early on in the Old Testament, where Isaac ordered a well to be dug for water after various disputes had taken place over the rights of the wandering Israelites to draw water from other peoples wells. They dug a new well and no one complained about it, and so they named it Rehoboth which means “the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land” (Gen 26 v 22).
Our church may not be very big but we like to think there is room for everyone who comes along and that those who do will have no cause to complain!
