Advent and Christmas

  • Carols on the Forecourt

    Sunday, 5 December @ 5.00pm

    Ding dong merrily on high,
    Plans for Christmas are ringing
    Ding dong merrily the sky
    Will be full of St Matt’s singing
    5pm on the 5 December.

    Invite your friends and neighbours to our outdoor carols with mince pies and mulled wine and start the season of cheer, led by the 5pm service team. This will be shorter, less traditional, colder (we hope!) than the other carol services.
