CHRISTMAS SERVICES 2018
Memorial Service for the Bereaved
This service will be held on Wednesday 12th December, at 7pm in the church, and is especially for people who find the thought of Christmas celebrations difficult without a loved one who has died. Everyone is welcome. There will be a cup of tea or coffee afterwards for anyone who wishes to stay.
Service of Lessons and Carols
Join in singing some well-known hymns, listen to some lovely carols sung by the choir, and hear again the Christmas story from creation onwards in readings from the Bible. This traditional service is on Wednesday 19th December at 7.30pm, and is followed as usual by seasonal refreshments!
Peace Light Service on Thursday 20th December – see display panel below.
Service with Sunday Club and other Young People
The second morning service on Sunday 23rd December, starting at 11am, will be an all-age service with the young people of our church family involved. We can all join in the celebration, led by our Youth and Children’s Workers, Kenny McCartney and Emily Kerrigan.
Big Carol Sing
Also on Sunday 23rd December, at 7pm, we are in the Anderson Hall for the “Big Carol Sing”. Informal, good fun, lots of favourite carols, and mince pies and shortbread afterwards. Ask your friends and neighbours along!
This service, at 4 o’clock on Christmas Eve, is particularly suitable for young children and families, but everyone is welcome. If you want to make a Christingle, please bring an orange with you (a reasonable size, not a tiny one). Don’t be late – it’s very busy!
Later on Christmas Eve, we’ll sing carols together from 11.15pm and the service will start at 11.30pm, leading up to the very first chance to celebrate the day Jesus was born. At midnight, it’s Christmas Day!
Our Christmas Morning Service starts at 10.30am, and children are invited to bring one of their new toys with them.
Sunday 30th December and Sunday 6th January
There will be one all-age morning service at 10.30am.
