Monday 13th December at 11a.m. - Time of Remembrance -see section below for further information
Saturday 18th December - Our Christmas Carol Concert will take place on Saturday 18th December. There will be performances at 2pm and 6pm. Because of COVID restrictions you can reserve a ticket by contacting the Corps office, payment (£5) will be taken when you come for the performance. COVID restrictions will limit the number of tickets, so book early to avoid being disappointed. A pre-booked ticket is required for entry so that we can control the number of attendees. i.e. This year there will be no un-booked tickets available at the door.
Sunday 19th December - The Candlelight Carol Service at 5pm. Due to COVID restrictions this year numbers of attendees will be limited so we have had to implement the same measures as for the Carol Concert, admission by free ticket only, reserve yours by contacting the Corps Office.
We would respectfully ask that if you reserve tickets for either the Carol Concert or Candlelight Service you do your utmost to attend or pass your ticket on to someone who will attend as we cannot fill vacant seats at the time of the event.
Christmas Day - service at 10.30am
Sunday 26th December - No Service
