Christmas 2023

A Great and Mighty Wonder!

Something for everyone at the English Church this Christmas.
It will be lovely to see you!

Children's Christingle Carols
Sunday 10 December, 16.00
A service for children of all ages and their grown-ups, re-telling the familiar Christmas story with carols and crib and candles - and maybe a few mice, here and there. Lasting about 40 minutes.

Nine Lessons and Carols
Sunday 17 December, 16.00 and 18.00
The traditional favourite, with our special Christmas Choir and congregational carols and readings (lessons) from the King James Bible. Done twice to fit everyone in.

If you can sing SATB and would like to be part of the special Choir come along to rehearsals on Sunday 3 December at 12.30, Sunday 10 December at 12.30 and Saturday 16 December at 10.00.

Blue Christmas
Thursday 21 December, 18.00
On the shortest day of the year, a simple service for those of us who may be struggling to find much joy in Christmas this year. No enforced merriment, but time and space to be ourselves as we are. And a cup of coffee before we go.

Midnight Mass
Sunday 24 December, 23.30
Welcoming the light in the middle of the night, with candles and incense and carols and bread and wine to celebrate the birth of the Christ-child. And all in time to catch the last bus into town. 

Christmas Morning
Monday 25 December, 11.00
Gathering from east and west and north and south on Christmas Day in the morning, for a joyful welcoming God's gift of the Bethlehem baby. A service for all ages and all sorts.
