It was an action packed and joyous Christmas at St Matthew’s. It all began with our Christmas Market; balloons, jam, espresso, children’s toys and much more were snapped up as we raised a record amount for the ministry of the church.
For the first time this year we welcomed COSMIC (Children of St Mary’s Intensive Care) for their annual carol service. With the Kings College Choir, accompanied by our fabulous organ, and with Christmas drinks and cake afterwards, the night was truly memorable. As also was our Lessons and Carols Sunday evening, which drew twice as many as last year and once again made the church reverberate with wonderful choral music together with the moving Christmas readings and a short address.
Our Christmas Midnight Mass service was as popular as ever drawing over 150 from the neighbourhood and then Christmas Day itself, which was full of joy. Thank you to everyone who came, helped and to all who beheld the Baby born for us. Come again soon, you are always most welcome.
