Christmas Crafts: Saturday 25th November 10am – 4pm

We start our Christmas Season with a day of craft making run by Ailsa and very much enjoyed and anticipated. Fun for all the family – what is better than making your own cards and decorations? Look out for the next  Christmas session nearer the time. Materials are provided and there will be something for all ages.

 

Nativity Service: Sunday 10th December 10.30am

This is a lovely family Service with all our Junior Church children taking part. Carols and the re-telling of the traditional Christmas story with the youngest children dressing in costumes and acting the parts. One year we had a snowy day to add extra excitement but even if it is wet and windy we do hope you will come along and enjoy the service.

Carols by Candlelight: Sunday 17th December 6.30pm

Our music group leads us in another traditional Christmas activity: our Candlelight Carol Service. A lovely mix of traditional and new, with Bible readings between, and the odd surprise. Do come and join us and enjoy some Christmassy refreshments afterwards with plenty of time to meet up with old friends and make new ones.

Christingle Service: Sunday 24th December 4.00pm

There is something very special about going in to church at 4.00pm on Christmas Eve as it is still just daylight, and lighting the children’s Christingle candles in the darkness towards the end of the service. It truly represents for all of us the light of Christ overcoming the darkness. This service is especially family friendly – and all are welcome. For safety please come with hair tied back and an adult to look after each child if possible. There will be a collection in aid of Tearfund Chilren’s work.

Midnight Holy Communion: Sunday 24th December 11.30pm

Our midnight service starts at 11.30 pm on Christmas Eve. The service is candlelit and includes traditional carols and Holy Communion. All are welcome to this traditional way of celebrating Christmas Day. The collection will be in aid of Crisis.

Christmas Day Family Service: 25th December 10.30am

On Christmas morning at 10.30am we have an all-age family service – we have so many families with young children at Jesus Church, there is no need to worry about bringing little ones. There will be a special children’s spot and they are included also in our famous ‘extended orchestra’ and in the interactive prayers. The service will be kept shorter to about an hour and we do hope you will be able to come and join us on this special day with familiar and new carols and Christmas readings. The collection will be in aid of Crisis.
