Christmas Services

We have a very full programme for you during Advent and Christmas 2018!

Apart from our usual Christmas services this year we have a few extra's planned for December. Plese note the following:

Sunday 2 December at 6:00pm- A Celtic Blue Christmas.

Why a Blue Christmas? Cries of "Merry Christmas!" and non-stop caroling contrast with the feelings of many people at this time of year. For those suffering from the recent or impending death of loved ones, for the loenly and for those whose families are in crisis, it can be a very isolated and dreary time. Every greeting and every song reminds the grief-stricken of how unhappy life is at this moment. Many churches have begun to recognize that Festivals of Lessons and Carols, celebrations of Christmas, and children's pageants doa not meet everyone's needs. To fill this gap we offer a Blue Christmas service, a Service of Solace for those who find this to be a painful time of the year. People who are not having a very merry Christmas and friends who support them are invited to come and sit with one another in a liturgy that speaks of the love of God for the grieving.

  

Sunday 16 December at 7:00pm- A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.

On this night we will be having a service of Nine Lessons and Carols in the style of King’s Colledge, Cambridge. Along with our organist, Lesa O'Neil, o add extra ambience we will be having the vocal talents of Sopranos- Alexandra Cuthbert-Freese and Elke Hook, Alto- Kathryn Dries, Tenor- Paul Morris and Bass- Alex Sefton. This will be a magic night of wonder, well known carols plus a few not often heard ones! You are welcome to stay after the service for fruit mince pies and sparkling wine.
