It's Carols by Candlelight tonight at 7pm at Holy Trinity. Come and join us as we explore the coming of Christ at Christmas, with some beautiful singing from the choir, readings and some congregational carols too.
Here's a list of our services coming up over the Christmas period. There's all sorts. With the quiet reflection of the Hope and Light service, as we remember those we love and see no more. To the exuberance of the Christmas eve services. We hope to see you some time as we celebrate Christ coming into our world.
Coming up on 10th December at 6pm we have our annual Hope and Light service. Where we pause in the busyness of Christmas and remember before God those we love but see no more. There's a chance to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one with proceeds split between St. Benedicts and the Washington Food Bank. If you'd like a form send us a private message with your address (postal or email).
Congratulations to David, as it was announced today that he'll be Chaplain to the Queen. He's not leaving us as it's a role he'll combine with his work in Washington. Updated with a better link with more details but it's also worth checking out Look North who have a fuller report. http://durhamdiocese.org/washington-clergyman-becomes-quee…/
Hello just a reminder that the November all age service is this Sunday at 10pm. It's been moved for the Remembrance Sunday service which will be on 12th November. Please note that on Remembrance Sunday we'll start at 9:30 in church so we can get to the war memorial in time to join the parade.
This Saturday from 2pm we have a sponsored hymn sing in church. It's to go towards the building fund as we look to add an extension for the church. It should be a great fun afternoon, with refreshments and a raffle.
Coming up this Sunday we have our Harvest Festival service. Starting at 10am, it's an all age communion service. And we're taking up a collection of non-perishable store cupboard type items for the Washington Foodbank.
Can we recommend this service at St. Peter's in Sunderland. It's a lovely service for all families who have children aged 11 and under or who have special or additional needs. Siblings are welcome too. The next one is Saturday 28th October at 10am.
