Advent & Christmas Services

Advent has become something of a “forgotten” season, bustled aside by Christmas. While Christmas invites us to remember Jesus’ first coming, Advent draws our attention forward to when He comes again. How does that perspective form our living in the here and now?

We invite you to carve out time and gain that perspective in our Service of Readings & Carols for Advent on Sunday 2 December, 7.30 pm. It will be followed by mulled wine and mince pies.

Be part of our Reverse Advent campaign! Instead of taking something out of an Advent calendar put something in a box each day. Start before Advent (23 November) to ensure we can collect as a much as we can by the Family Carol Service to share with people at Fondation Maison de la Porte Ouverte. Click here for a list of suggested foodstuffs etc.

For many reasons, Christmas can be a sad and difficult time for some. We offer a reflective service called The Longest Night on Wednesday 19 December at 7:30 pm.


Our normal Sunday Services continue throughout December but with some variations, being aware that many in our international community travel and welcome guests at Christmas-time.

Join us on Sunday 16 at 11.00 am on for a Carol Service followed by Bring & Share lunch.

On Christmas Eve at 4.00 pm the Christingle Service is a great way to begin this exciting time for children. You are invited to support the work of the Children’s Society.

Midnight Communion with traditional Carols on Christmas Eve (11.00 pm) leads us into the celebration of the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.

We have just one Service on Christmas morning at 10.30 am, a simple Holy Communion Service for all ages
