Christmas Services

We’ve got some special things going on at this time of year, and we’d love to see you at any or all of them

Children’s Nativity – Sunday 17th December 10am

Our children and young people will be performing Bethlehem – the Musical – a special nativity play to get us into the Christmas mood. After the performance, we will sing some carols and pray together, and finish with a mince pie to go with our coffee or tea.

This is our second attempt – last week we were snowed in!

Carols by Candlelight – Sunday 17th December 6.30pmjoytotheworld

Our traditional carol service, led by the choir and followed by mulled wine and mince pies.

New this year – something for people who find Christmas hard. On the longest night of the year, we will gather for a short, reflective service of music, readings and an opportunity to remember loved ones. The church has always commemorated St Thomas on this day – famous for his doubting, but also associated with depression.

If Christmas is a bittersweet time for you, come without any strings attached.

Carols on the Green – Friday 22nd December 6pmcarol-singers

Join us by the Christmas tree for half an hour of carol singing. If the weather is really atrocious, we’ll take shelter in church!

Crib Service – Christmas Eve 3.30pmcrib-service

The children assemble the crib, and Mary and Joseph will arrive, after journeying around the parish all December.

Midnight Communion – Christmas Eve 11pmMidnight-Communion

Come and usher in Christmas Day with us, as we meet around the Lord’s Table  and Midnight approaches.

Family Communion – Christmas Day 10amChristmas Service

All are welcome to a family celebration. If you’ve already unwrapped your presents, bring one to show and to say thank you for.
