Christmas At Hockliffe Street Baptist Church

Carols on the Steps – 10.30am Sunday 12th December We’d love you to join us as we push the doors open and bring Christmas worship out onto the street.  With Carol singing on the steps, refreshments and warm conversation for all – both inside and outside the church – it’s a great way to share ‘good tidings of great joy’ in the town – from the youngest to the oldest.

DIY Nativity – from 5pm – Friday 17th December.  A Nativity service for everyone, with a difference.  Come prepared to play your part in the story as we remember ‘God with us’.  Bring a packed tea, then take your place in the story before we finish the evening with games and conversation.  Come in a Nativity costume of your choice.

Christmas Café – 10.30am – Sunday 19th December. Join our regular Sunday morning service, (but with a twist) with a selection of songs old and new, prayers and readings, reflections on the meaning of Christmas and with refreshments half-way through the service.  With groups for children of all ages – it would be great to see you!

This service will also be streamed live on our YouTube channel

Carols by Candlelight – 4pm Sunday 19th December.  What are you missing this Christmas? A service with Traditional Carols, contemporary songs, videos, readings and prayers for the whole family.  With a short, thoughtful reflection on what we might be in danger of missing this Christmas, we’d love to welcome you and share a mince-pie at our Carols by Candlelight service.  You will need to book seats (free of charge) for this service. Book Seats

This service will also be streamed live on our YouTube channel

Watchnight service – 11pm Friday 24th December.  As Christmas day approaches, our watchnight service is an opportunity to join in singing carols and songs of hope and joy and we celebrate the arrival of the baby who was Mighty God and Prince of Peace.  This service will be available on our YouTube Channel from 11pm

Christmas morning – 10am Saturday 25th December.  Join us for a brief, fast moving Christmas morning gathering as we celebrate the one who was ‘born this happy morning’. Lasting less than 40mins, it is a great way to share the joy this Christmas day.  We’d love to see you.
