Family Carol Service - Sunday 22 December at 4.00pm

A traditional way to begin your Christmas celebrations. Join us for a service of Christmas readings, favourite Christmas carols, and to hear afresh the Christmas story for today. The liturgy builds to a climax with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Everybody will be welcome, and refreshments will be served after the service.


Crib & Christingle Service - Christmas Eve at 4.00pm

An informal service designed for younger children. Each child will receive a Christingle (a decorated orange, symbolising the world) and the Christmas crib will be assembled by the children. Refreshments will be served after the service. Everybody welcome.


Christmas MIDNIGHT MASS - Christmas Eve at 11.30pm

The first mass of Christmas. Come and join us at 11.30pm for this traditional start to Christmas Day. The liturgical climax - the breaking of bread - takes place slightly after midnight, as we welcome Christmas morning together. Favourite Christmas carols included.


Christmas Dawn Mass - Christmas Day at 8.00am

The dawn mass of Christmas is celebrated according to the rite of the Book of Common Prayer. It is a quiet said service, with no carols or hymns, for those who prefer a more private and reflective start to Christmas Day.


Christmas Morning Mass - Christmas Day at 10.30am

The morning mass of Christmas Day, sung, with favourite carols. Everybody will be very welcome to join us for the start of a special day. Church is the best start to Christmas, to be followed by presents, food, and the Queen! All welcome. Refreshments will follow the service.

These are the main services, but there will be others, every day, across the Christmas period.
