Derrick Matthews: December 2018
Next Sunday, December 16th at 5pm, we will have our Festival of Lessons and Carols, led by Rev. Helen Kirk. It will tell the story of the nativity with readings from the Bible and reflections on the events, together with traditional Christmas carols and participation by the children of the Junior Church. It will be presented by the musicians and other members of the church and followed by mince pies and tea or coffee in the church hall.
A warm welcome is extended to everyone. To see the full list of our December services, click here.
