On Sunday 5th December at 4pm, we will be hosting a fun, informal family service, after which we will share some food together (pizza!). This will be held at St Mary’s Community Centre. The service will creatively explore the Christmas story, and God’s gift of Jesus. Families are especially welcome to bring children along.
