Crib Service and Christingle

This is a family service for children and parents, telling the story of Mary and Joseph trying to find somewhere to stay for the night. Come dressed up as characters from the Nativity, and be a part of the story! Learn the meaning of the Christingle, and parade around church with your little candle aflame.


Midnight Mass

Monday 24th December - 11:30pm

Welcome in Christmas Day by celebrating communion at one of our favourite services of the year! It might be late, but it will set you up for bed in a Christmas mood as we finally get to sing the last verse of O Come all ye Faithful, and join in with all your other favourite carols!


Christmas Day

TUESDAY 25th DECEMBER - 10:00am

You may have unwrapped all your presents and even treated yourself to a mince pie, but why not come and celebrate in our Christmas Eucharist and see others on Christmas Day? You’ll be back in time for the turkey to be done, and it sets the day off nicely, remembering the baby Jesus, the reason we are all celebrating this day.
