Everyone is very welcome to join us in our Christmas celebrations and carol services.  We have various events and services during December alongside our usual Sunday services so hopefully you will find something you’ll enjoy.

 

Saturday 9th December

4pm Carols in the Park at the Bandstand in Horsforth Park

We will be joining with other churches from around Horsforth for our annual carols in the park service.  Wrap up warm, glow sticks, mince pies and warm drinks will be provided.

Sunday 10th December – 

4pm Family Carol Service (with Christingles)

Join us for our annual Family Carol Service where we sing many popular carols and also support the Children’s Society by giving Christingles out to everyone who comes to raise awareness of their work.

The service will be followed by refreshments in the parish centre.

Sunday 17th December

6pm Candlelit Carol Service in church

This is an atmospheric, more traditional carol service where our beautiful church is solely lit by candles.  This service is less suitable for small children due to it being quieter and more contemplative.

Thursday 21st December

7.30pm  The Longest Night Service

The church will be open this evening for anyone who has been bereaved or finds this time of year particularly difficult for whatever reason.  There will be a short service including carols at 7.30pm and the rest of the evening will be available for quiet prayer.  Feel free to come and go as you’d like.

Sunday 24th December, Christmas Eve

6pm Crib Service in church

Our crib service gives us a chance on Christmas Eve to think about the Christmas story together and sing some Christmas carols before all the excitement of Christmas Day starts.  This service is particularly suitable for those with young children – feel free to come dressed up in nativity costumes.

11.30pm Midnight Communion Service in church

Take some time to reflect on the message of Christmas and share Holy Communion together as Christmas day begins.

Monday 25th December, Christmas Day

10am Worship on Christmas Morning in church followed by a short Holy Communion service

Join us on Christmas Day to celebrate and worship Jesus!  Please note that this service begins at 10am (not our usual Sunday time of 10.30am).
