Christmas


At Christmas we celebrate the birth of Christ and God's gift of love to all people.

The mystery of the Incarnation of the Word lies at the heart of the Christian faith. It is celebrated just after the longest night of the year, when (in the northern hemisphere) the days begin to lengthen until we reach the summer solstice. On the holy night of Christmas Eve, the birth of Jesus means for us the Light shining in the darkness, the night of winter giving way to the spring.

Join us at St Peter's Church for the holy season of Christmas as we celebrate Christ's birth with carols for all the family, beautiful choral music and prayer. Everyone is welcome at our services – even if you are not a regular churchgoer, we welcome you to St Peter's to share the wonder of Christmastide.

the crib This festival of the Child Jesus reminds us, and celebrates the fulfilment of God’s promise to humankind, that in becoming incarnate, embodied in human experience, God shares in our life as we are called to share in his. God will, through this purposeful act, redeem us and comfort us.
