Last year, we hosted our first gingerbread house decorating event over Zoom and had tonnes of virtual fun! 

This year, we'll be hosting another gingerbread house decorating session in-person at Jubilee Hall before our community carols event for those who'd like to start the fun a little earlier that day!

Gingerbread house decorating will begin at 3.30pm at Jubilee Hall on 12 December and everyone who attends is welcome to stay on for community carols (starting at 4.30pm).

Decorating kits will be provided on the day at a suggested donation of £4 per kit and there'll also be warm christmas drinks and chocolates for everyone who joins us.

For the past few years, we've held an 'Impromptu' nativity in the run up to Christmas and we're looking forward to having one again this year on 19 December.

This is a chance for children to come along with their families and get involved in a nativity service where there's no rehearsal or preparation needed! There'll be costumes for the children, familiar characters telling the Christmas story and fun for all the family.

The impromptu nativity service will take place at Jubilee Hall from 10.30am on 19 December when we'd usually have our normal church service.

We'll be holding our usual Christmas day service at Jubilee Hall this year from 10.30am.

It's a chance for people to come along and celebrate the good news of Christmas for a short time with others in the morning before the hustle and bustle of Christmas day kicks in.

Our christmas day service is short and sweet with a chance to sing a few familiar carols, hear a short message on the joy of Christmas and to enjoy a few Christmas drinks and snacks with eachother before heading home.
