We are not able to gather physically to worship today. However, we remember that although we may be apart, we can still worship together. Here are some resources and suggestions to help you worship at home and join together as the body of Christ. Thank you to all our contributors.
Thank you so much for all your kind comments regarding our online services and other videos this year. We are glad we’ve been able to be with you in this way during a very difficult time. We’ve no online service for Sunday 27th December, but we will be back with a Worship at Home video service on January 3rd 2021. Until then we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
You can download the order of service if you would like to follow along with the video service above.

Collect for Christmas Day
you have given us your only-begotten Son
to take our nature upon him
and as at this time to be born of a pure virgin:
grant that we, who have been born again
and made your children by adoption and grace,
may daily be renewed by your Holy Spirit
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit
one God, now and for ever. Amen
Our hymns today, O Come All Ye Faithful and Hark the Herald Angels Sing, were recorded by the musicians of St Martin in the Fields.
