Title Celebrating Christmas

Description

Thursday 18 November
7.00 pm–9.30 pm online via Zoom
£10.00 for an individual ticket

This November you’re invited to join us for an evening to celebrate all things Advent and Christmas.

Advent can be a particularly busy time of year so we’re taking some time out just ahead of the season to slow down, unwind, and make room to reflect on the season to come. We’ll be joined by some authors and speakers Amy Boucher Pye and Jo Swinney who will be offering some thoughtful reflections on the Christmas story and how we can make the most of our time this year.


We will also be joined by singer-songwriter Lou Fellingham for a time of worship and praise, as well as Katie Norman who will be guiding us in a festive craft.

So bring a glass of mulled wine, get cosy in your most comfortable armchair and get ready to bring in the season with music, crafts, and some thought-provoking sessions with our speakers.
