ADVENT, CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR SERVICES
Sunday 23 December: Our 10.00am service this morning will be a non-Eucharistic service, 'Morning Prayer on Sunday'.
Monday 24 December - Christmas Eve: At 4.00pm we will be holding our ever-popular STABLE TRAIL service during which the Christmas story will be re-told and acted out. This service is ideal for young children and families or carers, but can equally be enjoyed by those who are less young but still young at heart.
Then later on the same day we will be celebrating our MIDNIGHT MASS when we really do welcome into our hearts afresh the newly-born Christ-child. This service will be by candle-light and we will be delighted to welcome the Archdeacon of Rochester, the Venerable Andrew Wooding-Jones who has agreed to be our celebrant and preacher at this very special service.
Tuesday 25 December - Christmas Day: Our CHRISTMAS DAY SERVICE at 10.00am will be non-Eucharistic, but again will re-tell the Christmas story, perhaps in a surprising way!
PLEASE NOTE, there will be no service of Holy Communion on Wednesday 26 December.
Sunday 30 December: Again, this service, starting at 10.00am, will be non-Eucharistic. it will be a service of Morning Prayer on Sunday with a special focus on looking back over the year just ending and preparing ourselves for the New Year about to begin.
Sunday 6 January: Our usual first Sunday of the month All-Age Worship service at 10.00am will be celebrating the events of Epiphany. What might they be? Come along and find out!
EVERYONE IS VERY WELCOME AT ANY OR ALL OF OUR SPECIAL SERVICES DURING THE ADVENT, CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR PERIOD, AS THEY ARE AT ALL OUR SERVICES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!
Our next quarterly Service of Wholeness & Healing will take place at 10.00am on Sunday 27 January 2019.
