Christmas

Christmas is going to be different this year - see below for our full current programme.

Some of our churches are not large enough to host the more popular services that we normally hold,  so we are making some provision for worship on-line so you can join in at home: we will post links here on this page.

 

A shorter (30 min),
Family Christmas Service
on You-tube, including
'The Christmas Present'
- our locally produced 'Nativity' video

 

 

 

A fuller Christmas Carol Service video (prepared for Acle Churches Together by Acle Methodist Church).

A short Christmas message from the Bishop of Norwich

Further on-line services provided by the Church of England:
www.churchofengland.org/resources/preparing-advent-christmas-2020-comfort-and-joy
including an on-line Christingle Service, Lessons and Carols and Midnight Mass.

 

We are hopeful that the following will be able to go ahead. Note that it is necessary to book for services at our churches. Usual precautions apply: e.g. wear a face-covering (unless exempt); don't mingle with other groups attending the service; don't attend it you have symptoms of Covd-19 or have been told to isolate. Restrictions don't permit the congregational singing of carols inside, so we will provide recordings or a choir.
