Memorial Service for the Bereaved
This service will be held on Wednesday 14th December, at 7pm in the Church, and is especially for people who find the thought of Christmas celebrations difficult without a loved one who has died. Everyone is welcome. There will be a cup of tea or coffee afterwards for anyone who wishes to stay.
Peace Light Service
Friday 16th December at 7.30pm in the Anderson Hall, a short informal service to share the peace light that has been carried by Scouts and Guides all the way from Bethlehem. Bring along a candle or lantern to share the amazing light taken from the flame in Bethlehem, which have been burning continuously for over 1,000 years. Tea, coffee and mince pies will be served afterwards.
Service with Sunday Club and other Young People
The second morning service on Sunday 18th December, starting at 11am, will be an all-age service with the young people of our church family involved. We can all join in the celebration, which will be led by our Children’s Worker, Rachel Willis, on her last Sunday with us.
Big Carol Sing
Also on Sunday 18th December, at 7pm, we are in the Anderson Hall for the “Big Carol Sing”. Informal, good fun, and mince pies and shortbread afterwards. Ask your friends and neighbours along!
Service of Lessons and Carols
Join in singing some well-known hymns, listen to some lovely carols sung by the choir, and hear again the Christmas story from creation onwards in readings from the Bible. This traditional service is on Wednesday 21st December at 7.30pm, and is followed as usual by seasonal refreshments.
This service, at 4 o’clock on Christmas Eve, is particularly suitable for young children and families, but everyone is welcome. If you want to make a Christingle, please bring an orange with you (a reasonable size, not a tiny one). Don’t be late – it’s very busy!
Later on Christmas Eve, we’ll sing carols together from 11.15pm and the service will start at 11.30pm, leading up to the very first chance to celebrate the day Jeus was born. At midnight, it’s Christmas Day!
Our Christmas Morning Service starts at 10.30am, and children are invited to bring one of their new toys with them.
Sunday 1st January (New Year’s Day)
There is one all-age service at 10.30am.
