Christingle Service – 4:00 pm Sunday 2nd December (U)

Our annual service in aid of the Children’s Society which marks the beginning of Advent. A 40-minute service at which everyone is given a decorated orange with a candle. The most magical moment is when everyone stands in a circle around the church, all the candles are lit, the lights are dimmed, and the children sing a verse of Away in a Manger.


Co-op Carol Service – 7:30 pm Thursday 6th December (PG)

Carols and readings with Kirton Town Band, local schools and our Junior Choir. This annual service is put on by Lincolnshire Co-op. This is a ticket holder only service with limited tickets so book early.

Crib Service – 4:00 pm Christmas Eve (U)

A 40-minute service suitable for the whole family, from toddlers to great-grannies, in which we share the Christmas Story, sing some carols and take our papier mache Nativity Figures on the last stage of their Advent Journey into the stable in the North Porch as we await the birth of Christ. Ideal for occupying overexcited children and filling in that bit of time before tea and an early night.

Traditional service with carols, a sermon and Holy Communion.

Christmas Family Communion – 10:30 am Christmas Day (PG)

We hope that your encounter with God & the Christ Child at this holy time will inspire you to explore your faith further. Our Ministry team are always available to help in an unpressured, friendly and welcoming way.


Is a life-changing journey through the 12 days of Christmas, travelling in the footsteps of the Wise Men to meet Jesus.
