Did you know that Christmas is coming – of course you did. You’ve seen the Coca Cola advert on the telly – “Holidays are coming, Holidays are coming” – so we must be nearly there?

But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, there are still plenty of things to enjoy before we actually get there.

On the weekend of the 5th and 6th of December we have some great events for you.

We start the weekend with Greg Downes joining us for a Men’s Breakfast looking at the subject of “Failure and Hope”:


Mark Ritchie is joining us once again on the Saturday evening for “Are you feeling Christmassy yet?”

Are you feeling Christmassy yet?

Mark is a wonderful story teller and sure to make us laugh and cry. The tickets are free, but you will need to get one from the church office beforehand. I have it on good authority that we’ll have the Christmas Tree up by then, something that definitely marks the start of Christmas for me.

Then on Sunday we are joined by Greg Downes from the Watford School of Leadership. Greg is a gifted speaker and not to be missed.

Lunch Break Christmas Special

On the 9th of December rather than serving their usual Soup the Lunch Break team are laying on a special Christmas Dinner – with all the trimmings. They’ll be joined by the students from Capernwray Bible School who will be presenting “The Greatest Gift”. Please make sure that you reserve your place beforehand.

Robin Hood

We continue the Christmas theme on Saturday 12th December with the Saltmine Theatre company who are joining us with their show “Robin Hood: Merry Christmas, Merry Men”. If you like pantomime then this is the event for you. The tickets are £2.50 available from the church office.

Revive Christmas Special

Wednesday 16th December is a special Christmas night just for the ladies with the Revive team laying on a special night. It should be lots of fun with a pamper zone, Christmas treats and live music.

Carols by Candlelight

The highlight for many people and the definitive start of Christmas at Fulwood is the Carols by Candlelight service, this year being help on the 20th December at 6:30pm.

Then on Christmas Day join us for a short 45 minute service – don’t forget to bring a present.

For those of you who have been eagerly waiting for the podcasts from the last two weekends please accept my apologies. I’m hoping to get them up there before the end of the week.
