Celebrate with us

Christmas is coming! For many people, the run-up to Christmas is a time of stress and worry. The pressure of buying presents, preparing meals and hosting visitors can be overwhelming. In amongst the busyness and commercialism it is good to slow down, to take time to reorientate ourselves, and to remember the miracle of that first Christmas, when God became a human baby.

This Advent, the season of preparation, and at Christmas itself, there are a number of opportunities to prepare for and celebrate that wonderful event, and this card contains details of the variety of special services that will be happening in Harwell and Chilton. There are services suitable for families with young children, traditional candlelit services, and services for those wanting to celebrate communion on one of the most important ‘feast days’ of Christianity. Jesus came for all people, and all are welcome at our services in this special season.

Warm greetings from All Saints’ Chilton and St Matthew’s Harwell. May you know God’s blessing this Christmas and in the coming year.
