"Great little one, whose all-embracing birth
Lifts earth to heaven, stoops heav'n to earth." - Richard Crashaw

Amidst the whirl of excitement on Christmas morning, with stockings, presents, and the aroma of a wonderful Christmas Dinner, it is so important that we take the time to reflect on what it is that we are celebrating.

Our Family Communion service at 11:00am on Christmas Day is an integral part of the Christmas festivities for many of our congregation members and visitors, as we celebrate the coming of the Prince of Peace and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

The setting on Christmas morning will be the  Communion Service in E by Harold Darke and, in keeping with the slightly more informal nature of the occasion, carols during the communion will be chosen spontaneously by the choir and the Director of Music, with a chance to hear pieces which may not have been given an airing earlier in the season.

Join us here at 11am in St Bride's on Christmas morning for a joyful festive service, and make Christmas complete!
