The Service of Nine Lessons and Carols takes place on Sunday 21st December at 6.30pm. This service is a musical reflection on the story of the nativity. You are invited to join in the singing of the well-known carols and to listen to the choir sing some beautiful but less familiar settings.
The Crib service takes place on Christmas Eve, Wednesday 24th December at 4.00pm. All are very welcome and children are encouraged to come dressed as angels, shepherds or kings and join in the action.
All are welcome to the service of Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, Wednesday 24th December at 11.30pm. This is a beautiful candlelit service, the first Eucharist of Christmas.
There will be a service of Holy Communion on Christmas Day, Thursday 25th December at 10.00am. This will be a relaxed service for all the family. Children are encouraged to bring along their favourite gift to show to the congregation.
SPEAR, our local homelessness charity, is looking for restaurants to sign up to Streetsmart’s winter campaign. Customers are invited to donate to a homelessness charity by adding £1 to their bill. See www.streetsmart.org.uk for how it works.
The campaign runs until 31 December. Could you ask your local restaurant if they’d take part and nominate SPEAR as the homelessness charity?
Streetsmart has been donating funds to SPEAR for a number of years. This money has been used in SPEAR’s Skills and Development programme, helping homeless people get into work.

Running until the end of February 2015, this is an opportunity for people in the church and parish to raise vital funds for SPEAR, our local homelessness charity.
Here’s how it works:
- Invite friends, neighbours or colleagues for a ‘Soup Kitchen’ meal
- Ask your guests to make a donation to SPEAR
- Provide a simple meal and some warm hospitality
- Pass your guests’ donations to All Hallows for SPEAR
You can host your event any time before the end of February.
Our Event Host Pack provides recipe suggestions, ideas for your event, information about SPEAR and homelessness, an invitation you can adapt and send to your guests and Gift Aid forms.
