It’s wonderful to be planning a range of Christmas events for 2022 with no worry about lockdown or any other changes! We’re excited to share our events for this Christmas.
We kick off on Monday 5th December (7pm) at the Golden Disk in Hayes Town with a traditional sing-a-long carol concert. Carol Sheets are provided and it’ll be a great way to start Advent and get ready for Christmas.
On the 18th December, 6pm we have a traditional service of Nine Lessons and Carols. This candlelit service traditionally marks the start of the last week of Advent and gets us ready for Christmas Day. Beautiful carols interspersed with the story of the nativity read from scripture. Calm, quiet and a perfect end to a rushed hard working term.
On Christmas Eve join us for a great family service – Crib & Carols at 3pm. A riot of carols and fun as children take part in the nativity story and bring the figures from around the church to the crib at the front – all accompanied by your favourite carols. Hot Chocolate, mulled wine, mince pies and other treats will be available and we may even have a visit from Father Christmas before he sets off on his travels on Christmas Eve night. The service starts at 3pm.
Later that night (11:30pm) join us for our traditional Midnight Mass – the first mass of Christmas is short and beautiful. Come and join us after you’ve been out and bring yourself to our calm and loving service.
On Christmas Day we will have Christmas Day Mass at 10am. Come and share your stories of presents and family fun as we come together as the church family to wish each other the very best for the coming Christmas season.
