Christmas Services

Since this item was written it has been necessary to change a number of service times following the increased Coronavirus alert level in Wales.  For the latest service schedule, please look at the Parish Home Page.

Christmas is the time when we all get together with friends and families to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Over the years, the Parish has established a regular pattern of popular services, all well attended.  However, and ever so sadly, this year must be different.  The Good News is that we will be holding all our usual services.  The Less Good News is that Covid-19 restrictions mean that we cannot plan for large numbers in our churches and communal singing is still not allowed.  As a result, we will be holding some of our services on line (Via Zoom) and some in church.  Do come and join us in worship, which we plan to be fun (for the children) and joyous for all.

CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL. We regret that the planned viewing of the Christmas Trees in Christ Church on Saturday, 12th December has had to be cancelled due to changed Welsh Government Coronovirus guidelines.  However, you will be able to see the trees at all services from Sunday, 13th December.  Do join us.
