Carols by Candlelight, 5:30pm, Cardinal Newman School hall.

We will make our way through the Christmas story with familiar readings and carols. The whole family is welcome to come along and there will be activity booklets for the Children to use, to help them engage with the service.

Christmas Eve, 24 December

Christmas Eve Nativity, 3pm.

Families are invited to join us for a 'come and play' style nativity in our church building on Arch Road.

Children can put on one of our nativity costumes, or bring their own as we narrate the Christmas story and all the children can get involved. This will be a very relaxed service and has frequently involved multiple Marys and stray sheep, and this just adds to the joy of the event.

We will sing some favourite carols and enjoy some festive refreshments afterwards.
