YOURCHURCH CHRISTMAS SERVICES
Here are the yourchurch Christmas services.
1. JOINT ADVENT CAROL SERVICE WITH GERMAN PARTNER CHURCHES, Sunday 20 December, 6.30 pm (UK time)
Here’s an opportunity to worship together again with our friends from the Evangelische Kirche der Pfalz in Germany. This communion service for Advent will be led by Revd Philip Brooks (URC Secretary for Ecumenical & Interfaith Relations) and Pfarrer Martin Henninger from the Lutherkirche and Friedenskirche in Frankenthal. It will take place live on Zoom, allowing the opportunity for German and UK participants to speak with one another to offer greetings. Music for the service is being specially recorded and will include ‘Stille Nacht’. The prayers, bible readings and reflections will be provided in both English and German. This will be the second partnership service of the year with our German friends. In May, a joint Pentecost Communion attracted an online congregation of almost 200 people. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the Zoom link to the service.
2. MIDNIGHT CHRISTMAS COMMUNION SERVICE, 24 December, 11.30pm
Revd Ruth Watson will lead a midnight Christmas Communion service. Please bring your own bread and wine, or whatever substitutes you are using. Join us to see in the day of Jesus’ birth. Invite your friends and family. The Meeting ID is 965 1457 5443, and the Password is YourChurch.
3. CHRISTMAS DAY SERVICE, 25 December, 10.30am
Simon Peters will lead our Christmas morning service. We’d like you to invite your families to a Christmas get-together. During the service, we’ll create breakout rooms where you can spend some time together as families. If you haven’t any other family members attending, don’t worry – there will be rooms to gather as the church family! The Meeting ID is 965 1457 5443, and the Password is YourChurch.
