Christmas Events



Sunday November 27th – 10.30 am Christingle

Our Christingle Service this year provides a great start to our advent celebrations. Christingle allows us to share in the story of our faith and to act out that faith in our giving to the Children’s society. There are also oranges loaded up with sweeties to be eaten afterwards. As a special treat this year our vicar is liable to be dressed up as a giant orange/christingle!  The service is suitable for all ages.


Sunday December 4th – 10.30 am Toy Service

Come and join us for our annual Toy Service. Bring a good quality toy [or a gift of money] which will be distributed to those in our community who are disadvantaged and for whom the Christmas period is difficult. This service is one of our “Worship for All” all age events.

Join with other local churches and the community in carol singing at Fishponds Park outside St Mary’s Church on the Fishponds Road
