'Twas the week before Christmas
'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the church office, not a creature was moving, not even a mouse….
… well not quite actually! There’s still lots happening at Christ Church and this final update for 2017 will fill you in with all that’s coming up this Christmas and New Year.
Sunday’s Carol’s by Candlelight services were absolutely amazing and we’ve had loads of positive feedback - so a big THANKYOU to our wonderful singers, musicians, tech team, welcomers, hospitality team and everyone else who helped make the evening so special.
Midweek Carols – tomorrow at 11am
Tomorrow is our Midweek Carol Service at 11am. This will be followed by a buffet lunch - please book here if you would like to stay for lunch.
