An excited hubbub of noise as families arrive. An expectant hush as the carols begin. Dressing up, chocolate, oohs and aahs, generations of families smiling together, all gathered around the crib to hear the greatest story ever told, a story true and powerful.

Different venue this year, same heart: although Christ Church Downend is closed for building works, God is still on the move and his people are still worshipping! Come and find us in our great temporary home at Christ Church Junior School.

All welcome. The service lasts about 45 minutes.
