Christmas is coming to you!

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

This Christmas we won't be able to pack out the church building for our usual services and events, but fear not; instead of you coming to us, we'll be bringing Christmas celebrations to you!

Christmas Tree Trail . from Friday 4th December

Along with the Methodist Church and with lots of organisations in the town, we're joining in with the Chipping Norton Christmas Tree Trail. You can find our beautifully decorated trees at the church and at The Branch (the old NatWest).

Community Carol Service . Video . From 16th December

We've joined with the primary schools and other churches Chipping Norton Community Church to create a Carol Service video, with favourite carols, Christmas readings and plenty of joy and celebration! Enjoy preparing yourselves for Christmas!

Carol-Vanning . 4pm - 6pm . Sunday 20th

Our Christmas band will be touring Chipping Norton on a festive lorry, bringing you all your favourite traditional Christmas carols. Sing along from your doorway, or just listen in! (Click the title for more details.)

Experience the Christmas story in a new way. Walk through the town, finding scenes from the Christmas story depicted by live actors (and live animals!) Follow the star, meet the shepherds and finally come face to face with the baby Jesus! At the end of the trail we have a gift just for you, which will include everything you need to make your own Christingle. Start at the Town Hall steps between 2pm and 3.30pm.
