Christmas Eve – 6 pm. Crib Service for All Ages.
On Christmas Eve, we assemble the Crib in church – the figures tell the story. This is a child-friendly service with lots of carols – a perfect way in to the wonder of Christmas day.
Christmas Eve – 11.30pm. Midnight Mass.
For many, this is the heart of a real Christmas! “Silent night, holy night” we sing – and we can know God close and believe in the promise of peace on earth. It works for regular churchgoers, those who only come at Christmas (a special welcome, it that’s you) – and perhaps most excitingly, those for whom it’s their first time.
Christmas Day – 10.00am. Christmas Morning Celebration.
“Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning” – it’s a very special feeling, making your way to church through the quiet streets. It’s not difficult to compare ourselves to the Bethlehem community, waking up to a new world – and venturing out to see if they can glimpse the child of such promise … On Christmas morning often the regulars are visiting family far away – which means we are extra glad to welcome visitors who’ve come to Perry Beeches for Christmas. Please join us
