Community Carols by Candlelight:

Sunday 19th December, 4:30pm or 6:30pm

We'd love to welcome you to one of our Community Carols by Candlelight Services this year.

Below explains a little of how we'll run things and what to expect.

Choose to come at either 4:30pm or 6:30pm
To help manage numbers at our events and keep us safe we're running the same carol service twice - once at 4:30pm and again at 6:30pm. Choose which one you'd like to come to 😀.

No booking required

  • There is no need to book in beforehand, just turn up.

  • We do provide a venue-check-in QR code for those who would like to use it


  • We're aware that good ventilation helps minimise the spread of COVID-19. We will keep doors open where possible.

  • We have also added a mechanical air extraction unit to aid ventilation

Arriving & Leaving

  • On arrival there will be hand sanitiser available

  • Stewards will guide people to a pew and we ask people to stay seated as much as possible and chat to those around them if they would like

  • At the end of the service we ask everyone to remain seated for a moment to enable those in the socially distanced seats to leave first if they would like.

No refreshments this year

  • Due to the number of people at the service (and our limited space for moving around) we won't be serving refreshments as we have in the past. There will, however, be sweets or chocolates for you to help yourself to on your way out if you would like one 😀


  • The central block of pews will be free to be used with no social distancing required

  • Under the balcony on the sides, we’ll have every other pew roped off to provide some social distanced seating. These are available on a first-come first-served basis.

  • Extra seating in the balcony is available too.

Face coverings

  • Face Coverings are now required for all over 11s while in the church building (unless you are exempt).

  • Please see the link at the top of the page for more information.


  • There won't be a formal choir this year, but we will all join in singing the wonderful carols together.
