Chattabox Nativity Service is going to be held at
St Marys Church Unstone on Saturday 18th December at 4.00pm.

Everyone is welcome; there will be a traditional Nativity play with some audience participation, carols, prayers and refreshments.

This will be a family service particularly aimed at families with young children but suitable for everyone young at heart. We really hope St John’s congregations will come along and enjoy the fun. It’s a great opportunity to meet the young families who attend our Church.

Children are invited to come dressed as a nativity character, and are encouraged to be as much involved in the play as they feel comfortable.

We do have spare costumes available on the day.

The Oaks Community Church is having a Blue Christmas Service on Friday 17th December at 2.00pm at the Oaks Community Church.
