St Paul’s church is planning some special events for Christmas. This year the creative team at the church have chosen the theme of Narnia from the C.S. Lewis novel “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe”.
David Warren, Senior Leader at St Paul’s says “Narnia is a fictional land where snow covers the ground throughout the year. In the book, one of the characters says that in Narnia it’s always winter and never Christmas. It is a world in need of redemption. But there is hope – and those living in Narnia get excited when they hear that Aslan – the true king of Narnia – is coming to bring to an end to the reign of the evil White Witch.”
“The themes in the novel reflect the story of Jesus. He was born as a babe in Bethlehem bringing hope to the world. And just as Aslan is killed but lives again to defeat the Witch – Jesus was crucified and rose again, defeating the power of evil.”
“We are really looking forward to the programme of events we have got planned in December. It’s going to be a joyful time – as Christmas comes to Narnia!”
