Sunday 2nd February 10am
A special service when we celebrate Jesus being presented by his parents at the temple. Simeon tells them that Jesus will be a light to the nations. We will bless all the candles in church and everyone will each receive a special candle which will be blessed and can be taken home, our own little bit of the Light of the World which we can share. The children will take the Nativity figures out of the stable as on this day we start the journey towards Lent. Refreshments are always served after the service.
Eternal Light, shine into our hearts;
eternal Goodness, deliver us from evil;
eternal Power, be our support;
eternal Wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance;
eternal Pity, have mercy on us;
that with all our heart and mind and strength
we may seek your face
and be brought by your infinite mercy
to your holy presence;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Come to this special service of Holy Communion when we welcome the Christ-child into the world and into our hearts and celebrate Christmas.
Come and hear the story of that first Christmas, and see the characters as they journey to Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus. You are welcome to come dressed as shepherds or angels too, if you would like to. This is the perfect way to start Christmas and a wonderful Christmas Eve tradition for you and your family. Come early to get a seat.

This evening there will be a Ceilidh in the Church. With Elisabeth Witter as Caller and a fabulous folk band. If you’ve never been to a Ceilidh before, think Barn Dance and think ‘all ages’. Even little ones can join in, as well as not so little ones, slightly more mature ones, and the very wise ones! Even teenagers will join in so it’s a wonderful family event. And those who can’t join in or who prefer not to, will enjoy watching the fun and laughing when it all goes wrong! The more the merrier there is no limit.
The tickets are £3 each, or £6 for a family, and we invite everyone to bring one item of food that can be shared, for example a bowl of salad, a plate of sandwiches, a quiche or pizza, cold meats or cheeses. Or a cake or dessert.
There is a licensed bar with beer, lager, wine, even Gin & Tonic, as well as soft drinks. The Ceilidh is a well loved event in Saint George’s social calendar. Why watch Strictly when you can come and dance for real yourself!
