Advent Competition and Christmas Carols
Christmas will be very different this year. Thinking forward to Advent, join us in our Advent Competition, spotting Christmas Carols from visual clues, with the chance of winning two amazing Advent calendars.
We hope to be back in church (and will still be on Zoom) for Christmas, but we are unlikely to be abe to sing carols. Please join us in singing some Christmas carols at home and recording them to provide music for our Christmas services. You don't have to be an expert singer - if you sing carols in church, you can sing them with us - find out more here.
