Christmas at King's

We are now in the final week preparations for this year’s Christmas Carol services at King’s, which start this weekend on the Catford site. Our carol services are an annual highlight, one I always anticipate with great excitement. It’s also one of the easiest invites of the year, and if you haven’t already asked your friends and family to come along, it’s not too late! As well as carols, songs and performance pieces, I've heard there will be mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies. Our first Emmanuel service is this Saturday, 5pm, Catford, with another four services at Catford on Sunday at 9.30am, 11.30am, 5pm and 7.30pm and one at Downham at 6pm, Knight’s Academy (please note NO morning meetings at Downham this Sunday).

With so many services taking place over the next two weekends, it can be difficult to remember what’s happening when, so here is a quick summary for you of all the different service times and venues:

Christmas Carol Services

5pm Catford

9.30am & 11.30am Catford
5pm & 7.30pm Catford
6pm Knight's Academy School, Downham
(N.B. no morning meetings at Downham on 15 Dec)

5pm & 7.30pm Lee
6pm Beckenham
(N.B. no morning meeting at Beckenham on 22 Dec)

Family Christmas Services (for the whole family):
10.30am Lee
10.30am Beckenham

9.30am & 11.30am Catford
9.30am & 11.30am Downham

Although tickets are not required for entry, it is helpful for us to know in advance how many to expect at each service, so I encourage you to book your (free) tickets for the carol services online for yourself and as many guests as you plan to bring. You do not need tickets for the Family Christmas services.

As always, you can find all the information you need about what’s happening at King’s over the Christmas period on our website.

P.S. Christmas is yet to come, but we are already looking ahead to Watchnight on New Year’s Eve! This is another fantastic evening when we gather to worship, pray and see in the New Year together. Watchnight is happening at Catford, Downham and Lee this year, and tickets are going fast, so book yours now if you intend to come.
