advent news


Dear Christ Church,


This Sunday is our Advent Gift Day.  For those who missed Jay’s sermon last Sunday on this subject please go to the link below to listen to it:


May we encourage you all to prayerfully consider your response to the points Jay raised as you review your giving to Christ Church.


Foodbank have a new initiative for people wanting to donate items to them this Christmas.  Called the ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’, they are asking folk to put various items in a box for 25 days and to then take the box to their nearest collection centre – if you want to leave a box at Christ Church, please do so before 17th December so that it can reach those in need before Christmas.


For further details, please go to:



Our Christingle Service is at 4pm on Sunday 10th December and Carols by Candlelight at 6.30pm on Sunday 17th December.  Please do invite friends and family to attend with you.  We would like to serve mince pies and other small cakes after both of these services.  Please do bring them to the café servery on the day.  And if you are willing to help serve the refreshments please speak to Jo Gavin (for the Christingle) or me (for Carols by Candlelight).



Kind regards,



Andy Goddard

Parish Administrator
