Advent and Christmas in Kirkby, 2020

We are planning a mixture of online and in person services and events over Advent and Christmas this year. Depending on government guidance, this is the current plan. Everything is of course subject to confirmation, given the year that we’ve had!

Some of our favourite services are online this year, so you can join in safely from home. Turn the volume up, and join in with the singing!

Advent Sunday (29th November)
Online Service of Light, watch any time from 10am onwards on Youtube.

Advent Reflections
Each Monday evening, we will go live on Facebook to lead a reflection and light a candle from our Advent ring.

2nd and 3rd Sundays in Advent (6th and 13th December)
9.30am Eucharist at St. Martin’s
11am Eucharists at St. Andrew’s and St. Chad’s
(St. Martin’s will be live on Youtube, St. Andrew’s are hoping to be live on Facebook. It is very difficult to go live in St. Chad’s – the stone walls make it hard to get online!)
