Journey through Southbourne finishing at the Church, singing carols, enjoying refreshments and handing out Christmas invites and mince pies.

CAROL SERVICES – 4pm & 6.30pm, Sunday 17th December
This year we have two Carol Services, each with the chance to sing some of your favourite carols led by our choir and musicians. The 4pm service is particularly suitable for children and families, the 6.30pm is the more traditional lessons and carols, but everyone is welcome to either… or both! Each of these services is followed by refreshments in our Church Centre.

CHRISTINGLE – 4pm, Sunday 24th December
Using the orange with candle, this service is aimed at children and families as a way of exploring what it means for Jesus, the light of the world, to have come. Fun, interactive and moving – this is a great opportunity to enjoy the spirit of Christmas together in Church.

MIDNIGHT COMMUNION SERVICE – 11pm, Sunday 24th December
A traditional service of Holy Communion that begins at 11pm, and ends just after Midnight to see in Christmas morning. Everyone welcome, and a prayer for God’s blessing is offered to those who aren’t yet sharing in Communion.

CHRISTMAS MORNING CELEBRATION – 10am, Christmas Day, 25th December
Join us to celebrate Jesus’ birth with a fun and faith-filled service that’s suitable for all-ages. We encourage people to bring presents they’ve opened that morning as we sing carols, read the Bible story of Jesus birth and give thanks.
Following the Celebration service there will be a short service of Holy Communion for those who would like to share bread and wine on Christmas morning. This will begin around 11am.

After Christmas and the New Year
We’d love the chance to share more of what and why we believe, and to hear your thoughts and questions. We’re going to run Alpha from mid-January, please take a look here:
