We were so delighted to welcome the Thurston family to St Nicholas on the 9th December. Ben and Natalie were married in St Nicholas Church, Both are Doctors now, living in Australia at present. Since then baby Arthur arrived and whilst returning back to visit the Family for Christmas asked if Arthur could be Christened in the church in which they were married. We were of course delighted. Arthur proved to be the inspiration for my journey through Advent. This was a journey of revelation, the realisation that nothing is as vulnerable and so easily loveable as an infant. The story of the incarnation could only be as it is.
