When the angels visited the shepherds outside Bethlehem, they announced the birth of Jesus the Messiah as "good news that will bring great joy for all the people" (Luke 2v10). As such, we'd love you to join with us this year as we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus! Whether you're a Christian or not, a regular member of the church family or have never stepped into the building before - come along and discover this good news for yourself! All our events will be in line with Covid-19 measures, socially-distanced and with necessary steps for sanitation taken. If you can't make it though, we'll be live-streaming everything on our YouTube channel, so do still join in the celebrations digitally!
On the 12th, some of the children within the church family will be performing their long-awaited and much anticipated Nativity play, written by James Cary. This will be followed by a short, Christmassy talk and a Christmas lunch. Come along, and bring your laughing hats!
- 12th Dec, 11-12:15pm
The 19th will be our (Wood Green)-famous Carols by Candlelight service - a mixture of contemporary and traditional Christmas pieces performed and sung by the church Christmas choir, surrounded by candles to complete the atmosphere.
Worried you won't get a chance to sing? Never fear! There'll be opportunities to join in with some of the more well-known carols throughout the service. The evening will wrap up with mince pies and mulled wine - what better way to get into the holiday mood?
- 19th Dec, 6-7:15pm
Last year's outdoor carols was such a success (in spite of the cold) we've decided to do it again! Armed with a 4-piece brass band to accompany us, we'll be singing some traditional Christmas carols in the church gardens on the 22nd. We hope that they, along with the short Christmas talk, will warm your hearts despite the cold. If not, the mince pies and mulled wine afterwards surely will!
- 22nd Dec, 4-5pm
We'll have a short service on Christmas eve evening, looking ahead to Christmas and thinking about it's meaning in today's ever-changing, ever-uncertain world.
- 24th Dec, 11-11:45pm
And, of course, we'll be around on Christmas morning and welcome anyone to come and join us (with or without their newly-opened presents) for a short, all-age service celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus - "good news for all the people" (Luke 2v10)!
- 25th Dec, 11-11:30am
Whether you can make all of our events or none, we wish you and your family a very happy Christmas. Our prayer is that you will be able to enjoy the good news that Christmas is, and find hope in it. A true, lasting hope that shines brightly in a dark world.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
