This year Christmas at Church are a little bit different! 

If you often attend services here at St Saviour’s Parish Church, we’re pleased to tell you that (notwithstanding the challenges of this year) all of our regular Advent and Christmas services are taking place during December. The difference this year is that some of these services are taking place in Church and in our Parish Centre, while others are taking place online.

Everyone is welcome, in person and online, whether you come to church regularly, occasionally, or not at all. Our in-person services are COVID-secure. Please bring a face-covering to wear when inside our buildings. 

To attend services at 8.00am on Sundays or at 7.30pm on Wednesdays, just turn up! For all other in-person services, we ask you to book in advance, so that we can ensure that everyone has socially-distanced seating.

To book a place at an in-person service, please telephone us on 07471 439024. See below for the time-window within which booking will be accepted. When you phone to pre-book, please leave a message giving your name, how many seats you need and your telephone number. We aim to confirm on the next day.
