Christmas Events 2017
Memorial Service for the Bereaved
This service will be held on Wednesday 13 th 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 with Sunday Club and other Young People
The second morning service on Sunday 17 th 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, which will be led by our Youth and Children’s Worker, Kenny McCartney.
Big Carol Sing
Also on Sunday 17 th 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!
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 20 th December at 7.30pm, and is followed as usual by seasonal refreshments!
Christmas Eve (and New Year’s Eve)
Because these are Sundays, there will be a morning service (just one) at 10.30am.
Other Christmas Eve services are given below
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.
