Special Services for Christmas

Monday 24th December, 5.00 pm in Holy Trinity
The Blessing of the Crib – a service especially suitable for children in which we tell the Christmas story, and young children are invited to bring the various crib figures up and place them in the crib. The service lasts just over half an hour.

Monday 24th December, 11.00 pm in Holy Trinity
Candlelit Midnight Mass – come and celebrate the birth of Jesus. The church is lit by candles, favourite carols are sung, and we finish just after midnight – so Christmas Day.

Tuesday 25th December, 9.00 am in Holy Trinity
Sung Eucharist with Carols – a joyful, reflective service, and you will be able to get home to cook the lunch afterwards! If you have opened any presents, do please bring one.

Tuesday 25th December, 10.30 am in St Andrew’s
Blessing of the Crib, Holy Communion and Carols. Everyone warmly welcomed – and bring a present which you have opened.

Sunday 30th December, 6.30 pm in Holcombe Old Church
Carol Service – there is no electricity in this church, so the church is totally lit by candles. Please wrap up warm, and if you are able to, be prepared to walk down from the farm (if you need a lift that will be provided). Bring a torch to light your way there, but please don’t use it in the church!
