The Longest Night

When Christmas hurts – Wednesday, December 22, 6.30pm, St Mark’s Church, Upper Hale

The season of goodwill isn’t good for everyone. Sometimes it is a struggle, particularly perhaps if we have lost someone, or if it brings back bad memories. Sometimes we are lonely or living in circumstances that mean that it feels hard to celebrate. Sometimes we just want a break from the relentless commercialisation and pressure of Christmas.

Every year we hold a quiet, reflective service for anyone who finds Christmas hard, or just wants to stop for a moment and rest. This year it is on Wednesday, December 22, at 6.30pm, at St Mark’s Church. All welcome (please wear masks).
