A toy service, candlelit carols. Christingle and a midnight communion service are all part of our celebrations of the birth of Christ. It is rounded off on Christmas morning with a 10.30am family service and invitation to 'bring a toy'.
The 10.30am toy service on December 4th will enable us to pass the gifts on to our local Action for Children units. The 5pm candlelit carol service on 18th December begins at 5pm and is followed with mince pies and coffee in the hall. The congregational singing will be supported by the Organ, Choir, Music Group and Junior Choir, with readings about the nativity by members and friends of the church. Youngsters (and not-so-youngsters) love the 4pm Christingle service on Christmas Eve, whilst midnight communion is a regular fixture in many Christmas plans. The Christmas morning family service is at 10.30am and children are invited to bring a toy. If you would like one or more of these services to be a part of your Christmas plans, you will be made very welcome.

The style of Borg's writing is scholarly, logical and assessible, which made it easy...
