Kingsclere Methodist Church were hosts to an Epiphany Carol Service on Wednesday 6th January 2016. It was an eccumenical candle light service of Readings, Pagent, Carol Singing and Marking The Door, in which we celebrated the visit of the Magi to the Baby Jesus. The time when Christ, God's Son, was revealed to the gentiles — those beyond the Jewish faith — the rest of the world.
The service concluded by Chalking the threshold A way to celebrate and literally mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God's blessing of our lives and homes. With time the chalk will fade. As it does we let the meaning of the symbols written sink into the depths of our heart and be manifest in our words and actions as we pray:
May Christ bless the house.
After the service the congregation all enjoyed a glass of non-alcoholic mulled wine and some nibbles.
