News Headlines

There are three changes to our normal pattern of services over the Christmas and New Year period that you might need to be aware of. First, there is no Wednesday morning communion on Christmas Eve (24th December) or on New Year's Eve (31st December). Then, on Sunday 28th December, there is no evening service at the Parish Church. And finally, on Sunday 4th January, the only morning service is a United Family Communion at 10.30 in the Parish Church. It is part of our pattern to start the year together in this way, so there is no service at 9.00 at the Parish Church and no 10.30 service at St Martin's. The evening service takes place as usual on that Sunday.

Choir carolsOur traditional carol service takes place in the Parish Church on Sunday 21st December at 6.30 p.m. Candles, the choir, the traditional Bible readings and well-known carols give this service a strong traditional feel. Everyone is welcome at this (and at all our other Christmas services) so make it part of your celebraton this year. You can contact us for further details.

Bring children dressed as shepherds, sheep, angels or kings so that they can be part of the story. The service includes carols, readings, a 'live' nativity play and the 'magic' moment when all the Christingles are lit. It's a Christmas occasion not to be missed and everyone is welcome. Contact us for further details.
