Christmas is one of the biggest and most important festivals of the Christian year, when we celebrate the miracle of God becoming human – seeing life through our eyes.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 4:14-15 (NRSV)

Advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, is a time of reflection, prayer, meditation and preparation in which we are all encouraged to spend time watching and waiting for the Christ-child. Every Wednesday though Advent we shared a ‘Midweek Musing’ on YouTube with some thoughts to ponder, alongside Compline, a short, reflective night-prayer to end the day.

Christmas is for everyone – the whole of humanity, of any age. This year our Christmas services will be a little bit different, but we’re still here to celebrate, and we’d be delighted if you would join us, whoever and wherever you are.

Our Christmas services

Our online services are confirmed to happen and can be watched on this page.

We are expecting that our in-person services will be able to take place over Christmas. However, rules and restrictions rapidly change at short notice and so we cannot guarantee that we will be able to go ahead as planned.

If you are planning on coming to an in-person service, you will need to book a pew in advance. We will open bookings for the in-person services a couple of weeks in advance. If anything then changes so we cannot meet in person, we will endeavour to contact everyone who has booked in if we are reasonably able to do so; information will also be on this page.
