4pm & 6pm Christingle Service

A joyful service for all ages celebrating Jesus, Light of the World, with retelling of the Christmas story.

Entry to the Christingle services is by free ticket only.  A sign up sheet will be available at the back of Church from the first Sunday in Advent. and then the following Monday from St Peter's Parish Office (open 10am - Midday Monday to Friday) Due to fire regulations all prams and buggies to be left in St Peter’s House which will be secure and supervised during both services.
