What’s On – December 2017

Posted on

In theory December is meant to be a time of waiting. Advent is part of the Christian Calendar designed to make time for pausing, reflecting and waiting with anticipation for Christmas. However, December in reality for many is filled with shopping, preparing, decorating, arranging, events, parties, meals, lights, noise, music, and is much busier than other times of the year. We’ve already enjoyed our Christmas Market (See photos) and are so grateful for everyone who took part – it was a fun day and we are already looking forward to next year! Our annual Family Nativity Service took place on Sunday with adults and children alike getting into character and helping us to think about the birth of Jesus.

Over the coming weeks we are looking forward to Nursery Rhymes Christmas Special (14th Dec, 9:30am), Carols by Candlelight (17th Dec, 6:30pm), Christmas Eve Reflection (24th Dec, 3pm) and Christmas Day Celebrations (25th Dec, 10:30am). A mix of fun festivities with moments to pause in all the activity of all the preparations. At each of our Christmas Services will be collecting donations for Embrace to support them in their work and ministry in the Middle East.

Then as we enter a New Year we will be having a week of prayer. There will be opportunities to simply come into the quiet of the church and to be still. Whether you have faith and pray or are unsure but need some quiet you are welcome. We will also be praying for our community and welcome requests and suggests for things to pray for so do get in touch (

What’s On – November 2017

Posted on

November is a month of transition, the heating is on for increasing lengths of time, woolly jumpers, hats and scarves are dug out from wherever we left them in the spring. The clocks have changed and we have loud and colourful fireworks, followed by the silence of Remembrance before the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations begin.

In addition to our regular activities and events this month we will be holding a short Service of Remembrance on 11th November to remember those we’ve known and loved who have died in conflict. Whether this was a World War or a more recent conflict all are invites to submit names of those you wish to remember that these will be read out during the service and we’ll include a 2 minutes silence at 11am.

We excited about our new Christmas Market on 25th November. We have a good number of stalls selling crafts, candles, knitted items and pens as well as a few fun activities such as the Nativity Photo Shoot and a visit from Father Christmas.

As a church we remember that Jesus lay down his life for each one of us so that we can have a relationship with God and look forward to Christmas as a time of celebrating his light shining into darkness.


It is now possible to sign up for emails to help you know what we have on each month – subscribe here.
