Advent and Christmas with St Peter’s
St Peter’s starts Advent on 27 November at 10.30am with a special celebration service followed by refreshments. Services continue each Sunday at 10.30am throughout Advent.
On the following Saturday 3 December, celebrations continue from 12.00 to 1.30pm with St Peter’s Messy Church bringing family-focussed fun with songs, games and an introduction to some Christmas secrets; and the Stonegrove and Spur Road Community Group’s Christmas Bingo event from 2.00pm to 3.30pm. It’s going to be a great day!
On Sunday 18 December, young people will act out their nativity play in the church service at 10.30am and then they will bring the meaning of the season by taking their play to the Henry Nihill care home to share with the residents there.
Our seasonal celebrations will reach a climax with our Christmas Day service on 25 December. This year there will be special joint services at St Margaret’s Church on Station Road at 11.00pm on 24 and 31 December at 11.00pm and at 11.00am on Sunday 1 January.
There will be a series of reflective services with Holy Communion in St Peter’s architecturally striking chapel at 3.00pm on the 4 Thursdays leading up to Christmas, offering a time of quiet and space to reflect on the real reason for this festive season. Everybody is welcome to all services at St Peter’s.
