Advent and Christmas

Advent candles

The joyful season of Advent, when we wait for the birth of Jesus Christ and his coming again in glory, is almost upon us. We hope that you will have a happy and blessed time, however you spend it.

Please join us for any of our events during Advent and Christmas:

  • Sunday, 1 December - Advent Gift Service (10:30 am) Please join us we start the Advent season with a  lively communion service, led by members of our own worship band. The service will include a collection of 'tins and treats' for our local Foodbank. If you are able, please bring along a festive treat (with a long shelf life, such as a box of biscuits) for a family in need.
  • Saturday, 7 December - Christmas Carol Sing-a-Long (4:00 pm) A joyous way to get into the Christmas spirit, with the PMC Singers and friends singing old favourites and new, with plenty of chances for audience participation. Followed by refreshments. 
  • Sunday, 22 December - Carol Service (6:30 pm) A traditional service of carols and readings. We are delighted to be welcoming again members of the Putney & Wimbledon Brass Band, who will be leading our music, along with our own PMC Singers. It promises to be a wonderful evening. All are welcome.
  • Christmas Eve - Crib service (4:00 pm) A short service (about half an hour) aimed at children and families to help them enter into the joy and mystery of Christmas. There will be a few songs, a story and a focus on our crib.
