    What are you doing for Christmas?

    If you live in our area or you’re visiting family or friends over Christmas you’d be welcome to join us in church. It doesn’t matter if you don't usually worship in an Anglican church – or any church at all.

    Why bother?

    Christmas is not just about presents and dinner (although those things are important). It’s about a story of a baby who was born about 2000 years ago in Bethlehem to a young woman who was not yet married. We are familiar with the first part of the story from carols such as Away in a Manger, but not so many people know what happened next. In Holy Trinity Church in Loddon we have the rest of the Christmas story set out in the side chapel.

    Services

    Around our group of churches we normally offer a variety of services, ranging from the quiet, traditional words of the book of common prayer through to something much less formal. At this time of year we carry on as usual, with the addition of carol services, a dramatic crib service and late night services on Christmas Eve. Of course we also offer services on Christmas Day with a chance to thank God for Jesus.

  • On the rest of the site we'll be telling you about who we are and what's going on. We hope that you'll like what you find and come and join us for some of the events. To make things easy to start with, here are the main services which are pretty standard for each month. It is worth checking on the calendar however,  to see if there are any changes like on a fifth Sunday.

    The Churches and their main services

    Please note if there is a Festival that the pattern of services vary. On a 5th Sunday there is usually a united service and all the church congregations come together. Do check out the Calendar
