Christmas services

Christmas services at Saint John’s, weather permitting, are:

  • Sunday 19th: Nine lessons and carols at 6pm
  • Christmas Eve: Crib service at 5pm, Midnight Mass at 11.30pm
  • Christmas Day: 8am communion (BCP) and 10am Family communion
  • St Stephen (26th): 10am Family communion
  • St John (27th): 10am communion for the feast of our patron saint.

I have deliberately not called Sunday 26th Boxing Day. I did so in a previous post but a letter to the Church Times complained that Westminster Abbey had called the Sunday after Christmas Boxing Day.  I’m not sure I agree with the correspondent. I think that the Boxing Day bank holiday is on Monday, but that Sunday is still most definitely Boxing Day. Though I stand to be corrected if you know better.
