The Christmas season is in full swing which means mulled wine and mince pies are back on the menu!
Kicking off the Christmas season here at Hope Church we had the tremendous pleasure of having the Kings Chamber Orchestra perform their array of ‘classical tunes with a festive twist’. Gerard Le Feuvre and his spectacular orchestra left the audience spellbound Saturday night and feeling thoroughly festive. This is just a taste of the great events we have coming up this Christmas at Hope Church…
Next up – something for the ladies! This Friday 5th December there will be a Christmas Craft Cafe from 8 – 10pm. It’s the chance to have a natter with friends, be creative and Christmassy and relax with a mulled wine. It’s a great place for ladies of all ages to enjoy the festive season with one another.
The following Friday we have the Youth Unite Ball. If you’re aged 11-18 this is the event for you! Dress up or dress down, whatever clothes you’re most comfortable in. The night includes festival style food, a milkshake bar, rodeo reindeer, silent disco, carnival games and much more. Your ticket includes a meal, a dessert or milkshake, a drink and free use of all the entertainment. Bring some cash on the night if you want to purchase polaroid photos, tuck shop sweets or extra milkshakes.
On Sunday 14th December we will be having a Festive Family Morning with one of our elders, John Groves giving a Christmas message. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served afterwards. Then to finish our Christmas events off we’ll be having a Carol Service, with the Youth of the church putting on a production called ‘Night Of The Star’. There’ll be dancing, drama, catchy songs, definitely not to be missed!
Below is a playlist featuring some of our favourite Christmas themed sermons/songs from over the years, starting with Steve Lee’s recent talk ‘Advent’.
We really hope to see you at one of our events this year, have a great Christmas!
