Advent & Christmas 2020

Things may be very different this year, but we have some exciting plans for celebrating the birth of Jesus. Why not join in with some of our activities? Details of all are given below.

Family Treasure Hunt
From 29th November discover the Nativity Story by exploring our town on a fun, walking treasure hunt. You can do this all in one go or on separate outings and discover that we can find hidden treasure in unexpected places. A great message for the uncertain times we are living in. Send us images and videos of your adventure and we’ll include these in our Nativity Service. More details.

Join our live-streamed services at 10.45 am on our YouTube channel.
