Christmas

Christmas Eve – 24th December
5:30pm – share pizza with us, followed by a Children’s story, Christingle making and informal communion 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.

9pm – we begin with Carols, and a Candle Lit Communion and Christmas message starts at 9:30pm.

Christmas Day – 25th December
9am – Intergenerational Communion @ St Mary By The Sea. We will be hearing the story of Jesus from Luke’s Gospel and making a nativity scene together.

Blue Christmas – Wednesday 11th December
7pm – for some of us Christmas is not a celebration. Maybe you have suffered tragedy at this time of the year? Maybe you have lost a loved one? Or maybe you struggle with the commercialisation of Christmas. This is a quiet, contemplative service with no carols. Come and explore the Spirits call deep within.
