Christmas 2020 is going to be different for our churches but we hope that you will still be able to join us on-line if not in person.  We are also offering an outdoor service.


Our on-line Services are:

If you want to come to church in person:

To ensure cleanliness, each of our buildings will only be opening once to offer Christmas Communion


Christmas Eve

10.30pm       St Mary's Lower Swell - The First Communion of Christmas

Christmas Day

9.30am        St Nicholas Condicote - Christmas Communion.                     This service will now be held outdoors

12.00noon    St Edward's Stow - Christmas Communion


To seat as many people as we can safely, we are asking everyone attending Christmas Communions in Lower Swell and Stow to pre-book. If one service is full to capacity, we will suggest that you consider attend the another.


To pre book please ring:

It will also be possible to receive Holy Communion in the Christmas season, without booking, on Sunday December 27th at St Edward's Stow at 12.00noon and on Sunday January 3rd at 12.00noon.
