Everyone will understand that we cannot have a normal Christmas Eve Service in church this year.
Usually for this occasion the church is packed, and unless numbers are drastically restricted, social distancing would be completely impossible.
Church opening on Christmas Eve…. from 4pm
So instead the church will be open for visits on Christmas Eve in the evening at 4pm until 8pm. The church will be candle lit and there will be decorated Christmas trees. There will be a sound loop lasting about 10 minutes with readings, Christmas music and some words from Father Charlie.
We hope people will be able to come into the church and experience something of the special Christmas feeling and if they like, light a candle to remember people they are unable to be with this Christmas.
To make this a safe experience, masks should be worn and social distancing rules must be followed. Thank you.
