Special events

We have plenty going on in December and we hope you will be able to join us at any or even all of our events and services. 

Children are of course always welcome at our services and events and families are especially invited to the Christmas Fair on Saturday 1st December, to our annual Toy Service on Sunday 9th December and of course to the very special Christingle with Carols on Sunday 16th December.

Our Advent course runs for 3 Wednesday evenings beginning on 5th December and is a refreshing focus on the true meaning of Christmas amidst the hurly burly of parties and presents. Do come along and join us, even if you only have time for one of the sessions.

Also for some welcome time out, on Saturday 15th, there will be a free hour of festive wind band music with mince pies and mulled wine. Come in, sit down and enjoy!
