Nativity Scene

 

Christmas 2021.

Celebrating Jesus' birth.

 

Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:11

Here's an overview of the plans for December. You'll need to book for each of these events. Booking opens on 1st December at 8am.

Sunday 5th December - "All In" Church Social

None of our normal services will be happening this week, instead, we will get together at Brickfields for lunch and socialising! We'll spread out over the whole site, indoors and out (bring a coat!), and there will be hot food (hog roast / turkey roast / vegetarian), cake, marshmallows, hot drinks, bouncy castles, games and chill-out space.

This should be a great chance to catch up with people who've been going to a different service to you all term!

There will be two sittings (with overlap time):

  • 11am-1pm with food served from 12noon 

  • or 1pm-3pm with food served at 1.30pm. 

 

When you book you'll also have the opportunity to sign up to serve and help make it happen.


Thursday 9th December – no Word+Song

Sunday 12th December - Two events!
 

The All In Nativity! – 10.30am + 3.00pm

Come along for our fun and interactive telling of the nativity story! Fancy dress encouraged (for adults as well as children!) Followed by refreshments.

The Evening Service Carols – 7.30pm
The evening service will be happening as normal, with a Christmassy twist – come along for lots of carols and a look at the Christmas story.

The services on 19th December will be repeats of those on 12th December, so book in for one or the other.

Tuesday 14th December – Journey of the Magi
7.30pm (90 minutes plus an interval)

Springs Dance join us again to bring their marvellous retelling of the journey of the wise men to Jesus. It's inspired by T S Eliot's poem "Journey of the Magi" and will be a mix of laugh-out-loud funny, moving and entertaining theatre and dance, offering a chance to reflect and refocus. The evening will also have refreshments in the interval. 

Thursday 16th December – Word+Carols - 8pm
As usual, this will be (approximately) a repeat of Sunday evening; come along for lots of carols and a look at the Christmas story.
