Christmas Services

We are delighted that many people are wanting to come to church at Christmas and we, of course, will work to ensure a safe and socially distanced environment.
For this reason, it is important that you let us know in advance if you wish to attend
one of our Christmas services, in order to reserve a place at that service.

You can do this by e-mailing or phoning the relevant church giving your name and contact details and stating which service you would like to attend. Contact details for each church are at the bottom of this page. (nb you don’t need to reserve a place for the online services).

    We very much regret that in view of the high numbers wishing to come to St John’s we have to ask that you only attend ONE of the services.

We truly appreciate that these restrictions are difficult but hope you will understand why this decision has been reached. We very much appreciate your support and understanding in these challenging times.
