Christmas Services Expose

St Paul's at Christmas We’re heading for Christmas at a phenomenal speed, and before you know it, we’ll have sung carols, been to the Christingle service with the children, and had a great big celebration on Christmas day.

If you don’t usually attend St Paul’s, you might like to know more about how we do Christmas here, and what to expect. We’re a welcoming church, on Crawley Ridge in Camberley, and we’ve done all we can to make your visit a special time. Comfy seats, red carpet, refreshments, and the Christmas story.

Here’s a roundup of what to expect at each of our Christmas services.

Sunday 18 December

6.00pm Carols by Candlelight

Carols by CandlelightA service based around carols and bible readings of the birth of Jesus Christ.  In a beautiful candle lit church, the retelling of the Christmas story through bible reading, carols and music of a variety of styles blends both the traditional and the modern.  This is a time for thought and reflection on the richness of what we experience. Stay on afterwards for mulled wine and  light refreshments. This service is intended more for adults and older children. 

 

Christmas Eve

3.00pm  & 5.00pm Christingles (great for children)

Christingles at St Paul'sChristmas eve is a special time, especially for the younger members of the family who can barely contain their excitement.  The early evening Christmas Eve Christingle Service helps them remember the original cause for their excitement.  There will be a tableau of the crib scene, child friendly carols, candle lit christingles in a darkened church and a small farewell gift.  All ages are welcome. Come early to get a seat as this service is always very popular. 

Christmas Day Family Celebration

9.30am  and 11.15am  Family Celebration  (great for children)

Christmas Day Celebration It’s Christmas morning!  A time of great excitement for many.  All the preparations are complete, the turkey is cooking and the table is laid.  Now it is time to come along to St Paul’s at 9.30 or 11.15 a.m. to join in a joyous celebration of the real meaning of Christmas.  There will be something for everyone, whatever age you are.  We will be singing traditional Christmas carols, finding out about what weird and wacky gifts people have already given and received, and also celebrating the birth of the greatest gift of all – Jesus Christ.  The theme of our celebration is “Expect the Unexpected!”
