9 December, 5pm
Come along to our carol service with a difference. There is more of a relaxed atmosphere in the run up to Christmas as we enjoy music, dance and poetry from a range of incredible artists who offer a modern interpretation of the Christmas story.
Mince pies and mulled wine served afterwards.
16 December, 5pm
Our traditional candlelit carol service features carols and readings that rehearse the Christmas story. Choir items and a short talk also feature, and mulled wine and mince pies are served afterwards.
(Please note that this service is less suitable for pre-school age children - try carols around the crib!)
Carols around the Crib (including Christingle)
Christmas Eve, 3pm
This is one of the highlights of our year! Children can create their very own nativity crafts, build Christingles and actively join in with the greatest story ever told. Favourite carols, seasonal songs and short readings help to celebrate the wonderful story of Jesus and fuel the excitement. Juice, mulled wine and mince pies will be available afterwards. A service for adults and children of all ages to enjoy.
Christmas Eve, 11.30pm
Join us for a quiet and reflective service of Holy Communion as we dwell on the eternal significance of Christ's birth on this Holy Night.
Christmas Day Service, 10.30am
Celebrate with us as we rejoice in the good news of Jesus's birth. This short service is for all ages. Time-honoured carols, Christmas prayers and readings, along with a short talk enable us to worship God's gift of Jesus on this very special day.
Followed by a short Holy Communion at 11.30am
