Christmas is now well and truly on the horizon and we love to celebrate at Holy Trinity with a range of events for all ages. This year, the theme of our Christmas events is 'The Promised One is Here', looking back into the Old Testament prophets to understand how the coming of Jesus has been part of God's plan from the very beginning of time. There are six key festive events for you to enjoy with your family, friends and neighbours:
CHRISTMAS CONCERT - December 1st @ 6pm
We are pleased to be welcoming back the Camerata Chamber Orchestra for another concert. The event will begin with a Christmas reception at 6pm followed by the concert starting at 7.30pm. There is no charge for admission although a retiring offering will be taken for Tearfund.
CHRISTINGLE SERVICE - December 9th @ 4pm
Our regular all-age Christingle service will take place on December 9th at 4pm and will feature items by our Flames & Sparkles groups, Park Street School choir and our Carols by Candlelight choir. We'll also be giving out Christingles. The service will be followed by mulled wine and mince pies.
CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT - December 23 @ 4pm
Our festive favourite carol service returns with its regular mix of traditional and contemporary carols followed by mulled wine and mince pies. Come early to ensure you get a seat!
NATIVITY IN FANCY DRESS - Christmas Eve @ 4pm
