We plan to record a service of Nine Lessons and Carols, to be available to watch online on Christmas Eve at 6pm.
At 9am on Christmas morning there will be our usual Parish Eucharist, and again on Sunday 27 th we shall be celebrating Christmas at our 9am service. As we did for Susan’s farewell, we shall need to book with Liz Miller in the office for places at one or other of these services, but not both, please!
‘Watching, waiting, hoping’ – these three words sum up the focus of our prayers during Advent. So, in the first four weeks of December, we invite you to pray with us, either together with others in the church building, (social distancing, of course) or together in spirit at home.
We shall be gathering, both literally and virtually, for a Quiet Half Hour of prayer and meditation, each Tuesday at 12 noon.
A concertina-style, tri-fold leaflet with details can be found here.
Comfort and Joy
Also, in the run up to Christmas, from Saturday 12th December, the church will be full of ‘Comfort and Joy,’ in the form of a beautiful Christmas Trail of decorative displays to help us reconnect with the wondrous story of the birth of Jesus, known as Emmanuel, which means ‘God with us.’ There is comfort and joy, indeed, knowing that God is with us always and forever.
The Christmas Trail will be open to visit every day that the church is open. That is on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 11am and 3pm. Please do come . . . . . and bring the children!
