Christmas is almost upon us, and our carol services kick off this weekend, starting at Lee this Sunday at 5pm and 7.30pm. The following weekend we have a further six opportunities to come along, with services taking place at Catford on Saturday and Sunday, and at Beckenham and Downham on Sunday. Please check the website for details of times and venues. As I have said before, these are great events to take your friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours to – every year we have people attend who have never been to church before, and for many it is has been a first step in their own journey of faith. You can help us by collecting tickets for the service you intend to come to – tickets are free and are not needed for entry, but really assist us in our planning.
FAMILY CHRISTMAS SERVICES
Don’t forget we also have a further six Family Christmas services happening – at Catford, Beckenham and Downham this Sunday morning, and at Lee the following Sunday. These are fun events suitable for all the family, and last just over an hour.
We are also busy planning for New Year, and for the first time this year we are ticketing our New Year’s Eve Watchnight services. This is to ensure we can accommodate everyone safely, as last year we were packed to the brim on our Catford site and still had to turn people away – not something we like to do. We have two Watchnight services this year, one at Catford and one at Lee, with 500 tickets available for each. Although tickets are free, you and every member of your party will need one for entry. Tickets can be reserved through the website.
This month is a busy and often tiring time of year. But the carol services are always a highlight for me, a moment to pause and remember the wonder of Christmas. I highly recommend coming along and hope to see you there.
Remember you can find details of everything happening at King's over the Christmas period on our website.
