There's been a range of Christmas services taking place in the church this week!
Local schools came in for their carol services and we have estimated that around 800 children and a few hundred supporting adults will have heard the true meaning of Christmas! Thank you to the schools who visited; it is a real pleasure to have you with us and you are always welcome!
We also held our Christmas Messy Church service where more children and their families engaged with the Christmas story through some 'messy' activities.
This morning we held our Family Carol Service where we considered the story of Christmas from Matthew's perspective by reading his gospel. We also dressed up to create a Nativity scene to remind us of the different people who are significant to Christmas.
This evening, we will host our first ever Carol Service in Erskin Court; your prayers for the continued development of our partnership with Erskin Court would be much appreciated!
And looking to next week's services, remember that we have our Christingle service at 5pm on Christmas Eve followed by Midnight Communion at 11:30pm. Then on Christmas Day we have our 10:30am Service with Communion.
We'd like to thank those who have attended our current Christmas services and are really excited to continue to welcome you and others in the week leading up to Christmas Day!
