Because we can’t hold our Christmas Eve Carol Service or Children’s Crib service this year, we’re having a series of “Walk Through” events instead!
Between 4.30pm and 6pm each day, from Friday 18th to Tuesday 22nd Dec, you’ll be invited to enter the church with your household or bubble and walk slowly along the guided route through the church, enjoying the decorations and flowers, whilst listening to carols played and sung by different musicians each night. You asked to keep moving and spend around 10 – 15 minutes inside, before exiting through the far door. The exception is Sunday, when at 4.30pm there will be outdoor carol singing for everyone – safely distanced in the churchyard. You’ll be given a carol sheet, and asked to drop it in the basket by the church gate as you leave.
If there is a long queue at any point, you will be offered a “virtual queue” ticket for later on. This will mean you won’t have to queue when you come back!
There will be a collection as you leave for the Children’s Society or other charities we support at Christmas.
A different experience – but one that we will do our best to make very Christmassy for everyone!
Friday 18th December
