Christmas

Blue Christmas – 9th December
7pm – for some of us Christmas is not a celebration. Maybe we have suffered tragedy at this time of the year? Maybe we have lost a loved one? Maybe we struggle with the commercialisation of Christmas. This is a quiet, contemplative service with no carols. Come and explore the Spirits call deep within.

Carols and readings – 16th December
7pm – an advent service of readings and carols, concluding with Christmas mince pies and refreshments. Come and join in the excitement of advent.

Christmas Eve – 24th December
5:30pm – shared fish and chips, follow by informal communion and Christingle service. This service is aimed at children and families. Come and explore Christmas together @ St Mary By The Sea. RSVP 0211378624 via TXT or dion@stmary.co.nz for fish and chips.

10pm – we begin with Carol, and Communion starts at 10:30. Combined Christian Service @ St Mary By The Sea

Christmas Day – 25th December
