This evening sees the first of the Christmas events at St John’s: our ever-popular Christmas Carol Service by candlelight. Other services and events coming up:
- On Thursday we have a Children’s Christmas Workshop from 9.30 to 12.30, with games, craft, films, and more, ending with lunch.
- On Christmas Eve we have a Crib Service at 4pm, which is particularly aimed at children, and then Midnight Mass at 11.30pm—the first Mass of Christmas.
- On Christmas Day we have the usual High Mass at 10am, which is another opportunity to celebrate Christmas, followed by a Community Lunch, for anyone who would like to eat with us. (You might want to mention it to anyone you know who might be on their own on Christmas Day.)
- On 27 December we celebrate our patron saint, John the Evangelist, with a High Mass at 11am.
You would be very welcome at any of these events, but please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re planning to come to the Children’s Christmas Workshop or the Community Lunch, so that we can get an idea of numbers. (But don’t let that stop you if you decide at the last minute!) It would be great to see you at St John’s this Christmas!
