Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Exciting! We have two outdoor services in our churchyard:
At 4pm an outdoor nativity service, which will see characters from our recent ‘Round The Back!’ Video reprising some of their roles to draw us into the Christmas Story once more.
At 11:30pm a candlelit Midnight Mass service.
Remember to wrap up warm, and a little torch or lantern might be a good idea as the evening darkens and cools. All welcome to join us!
If you would like to see the ‘Round The Back’ video it is below:
St James’ Children’s Church is proud to present this version of The Nativity, which we filmed entirely from our various homes. We hope you enjoy watching it. We enjoyed making it.
If you missed our July edition of the Community Magazine, it is now available digitally at the link below, if you’d like a read.
Equally, if you are looking forward to the next one, and would like to register interest in recieving a copy hard copy through your letter box, please let us know by messaging us with your name and address. If you have already been receiving copies, don’t worry, you are on our list! 😊
Our Christmas Card is now making its way to homes in the parish, delivered by our lovely volunteers. It is a little token of the warmth of welcome there is for you here at St James, and at our sister church, Holy Trinity in Tidworth. On it are details of all our Christmas services – see photos below. Please do come! We look forward to seeing you.
If you are going to be on your own this Christmas, we have a special Christmas Dinner planned for anyone who would like to join with us at the Church Hall. Details on the poster below – please phone to register for a place by 30th November and also to let us know if you need transport. Already looking forward to it!
Join us during the Advent and Christmas for services and events of all sorts : there are carols aplenty – traditional, with bells, with curry, and even down the pubs! Loud and jolly, or quiet and contemplative, you are warmly invited to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, at St James.
