Can you believe I’m waiting for a curry on Christmas Eve?   It’ll keep me going until our midnight communion services.

Carol Praise & Nativity and the Nine Lessons & Carols were fabulous on Sunday.   It was in an excellent nativity considering how the props all emerged through the creativity of the Church Alive Service (pictured).  Church Alive starts again on 4th January.

Just got in from the Christmas Eve Crib Services – over 450 at the second one, lots of shepherds and angels among them; and the 18 sheep that were lost in Alverstoke had been found just in time for the Shepherd to take them to the manger.

The celebration continues at 10.00am tomorrow… will you try singing ‘The Twelve Hours of Christmas’ with us?

May those who are away from home and those missing loved ones know special grace; and may you know the joy of Christ for Christmas and peace for a blessed New Year.
