Christmas Greetings

Details of our Advent and Christmas services:

Thursday 21st December
7.00pm Blue Christmas – A service for the longest night

Sunday 24th December
10.00am Holy Communion
3.30pm and 5pm Children’s Crib Service

10.15pm Come and Sing Carols
40 minutes of familiar carols.
11.30pm Midnight Communion
The first Eucharist of Christmas. We greet the New Born King.
