All three churches celebrate the coming and birth of the Christ Child during November and December.

We welcomed many visitors last year at our Christmas services and that is what makes this time of year so special! We hope you enjoyed celebrating the birth of Christ with us.

We know that many people like to visit their local church at this time of year and everyone is always welcome to our services. Even if you do not normally take communion there is something special and comforting about receiving a blessing at the altar rail.

For those who live away from their families, Christmas is a time for visiting and happy reunions, so why not make it a family occasion and this Christmas come to a candle lit service across the benefice, particularly the Christmas Eve late night communion service that is so special in so many ways.
