Christmas Services

We have listened carefully to the views of the local community and tried, as far as
possible, to incorporate them into this year’s programme. We are pleased to
announce the following services for Christmas Eve 2018:

3.30 pm Family Carol Service by Candlelight
This service will be especially suitable for those attending church with young

6pm Nine Lessons and Carols by Candlelight
This year sees the 100th anniversary of the beautiful, traditional service of
readings and carols, which was first held in Kings College Cambridge on
Christmas Eve 1918.

11.15pm Midnight Eucharist by Candlelight

It is envisaged that each of these services will be run by a different team. The first
service is at a slightly earlier time than in the past, which will allow sufficient time for
the church to be tidied up and properly prepared for the second service.

This programme has been prepared after much prayer and deliberation, bearing in
mind the needs of all those drawn to worship God in our beautiful church at this
most holy time of year. Our primary aim, as ever, is to ensure a high quality of
worship in all our services to the glory of God and in celebration of Jesus’ birth.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Christmas Eve services.
