Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS from Collinwood Road United Reformed Church!

Christmas is a fun and exciting time of the year, and it’s a great opportunity to share times with family, friends and members of the community. It’s also a fantastic time to learn more about how the birth of a  tiny baby would change our world forever! We have a number of special Christmas services and events coming up and we would love for you to join us at them to celebrate the birth of Jesus!

Christingle Service: Sunday 2rd December 2018, 10am

 

On the first Sunday of every month we have an informal, all-age family worship in the Church hall where we explore our faith through music, drama, arts & crafts, interactive prayers and yummy snacks!

Our Christingle service is a very special all-age worship where we begin our countdown to Christmas! We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to join us in kick starting our Christmas celebrations!

The service will be held in the large Church hall, please follow the signs.
