Dear Friends,

Christmas in the Team

We have a splendid number of services and events over Christmas in the team, some new services and a few alterations

Mark is introducing a new, additional, Carol Service - Community Carols and Pop-up Nativity, this will be at St Mary's Tenbury at 4pm Friday 22nd December. This is one of the events Mark has organised for Love Christmas, which is the follow-on from the summer's Love Tenbury. There is more information around from Mark about Love Christmas, do please read it and support him - it may be that he could do with some help!

There will be another Blue Christmas service - for those who are not welcoming the prospect of Christmas. Invitations will be sent to families who have been bereaved this year and anyone who is finding Christmas challenging, for whatever reason, is very welcome to come along and join us on Monday 18th December, 6.30pm, at St Mary's Tenbury

The much-loved Barn Crib Service - has a new venue this year, it's Burford Mill, home of Raymond Morris. The service on Christmas Eve at 3pm, will follow the same format as in previous years: we will be outside but under cover, listening to the nativity story, there will be carols, dressing-up for those who'd like to and much laughter, followed by light refreshments! There is plenty of parking at Burford Mill so please follow the signs and turn in off the main road (the A456). I'd like to take this opportunity to offer huge thanks to John and June Davies of Weston Court Farm who have hosted this service for the last four years with enormous generosity

There are a couple of changes in service times so Clee Hill’s Christingle has changed from Sunday 24th to Sunday 17th at 7pm, Tenbury's Christingle will now be at 4pm on Christmas Eve and Hope Bagot's Christmas Day service will be at 11.30am

There is a complete list of all Christmas services in the magazine and they will of course also be in the pew sheet. Perhaps this year you could invite someone who doesn't usually come to church to come along with you?
