Wishing You a Very Happy 2013 from St Pauls

2013 is here. It's a natural to wish everyone a "Happy New Year!" However, Christians are not pie-eyed utopians. We are well aware that the world that could crucify Jesus is capable of great evil – whether that be from nature or man-made. One has only to look at the horrors of 9/11 or Syria to see that in action.

But what the Christian faith does offer is a Lord who sent his Holy Spirit to give strength to all who believed on him, and said: "Lo! I am with you always." and also: "I will never leave you or forsake you." We step into 2013 confident that we go in the company of Jesus, to meet whatever the future may bring.

Do come and travel with us, at St Pauls, through 2013 in the company of our Lord Jesus. Happy New Year!
