Seaton Delaval Partnership: Candle-lit Carol Service.

A Candle-lit Carol Service is to be held on Monday 18 December at 7.00pm at Sacred Heart Church, North Gosforth. In a lovely setting, there will be carols, readings and music. There is also the 'creeping to the crib', when each person takes a symbolic strip of cloth to the crib, offering something of themselves to the Christ-child.

Afterwards, seasonal refreshments will be available in the parish hall. All are welcome from our partnership and across the diocese.

Seaton Delaval Partnership: 'Blue Christmas' Service.

Our 'Blue Christmas' Service will be held on Tuesday 19 December at 7.00pm at St. Wilfrid's, Blyth. This is for those who (for whatever reason) dread the razzamataz and 'fun' elements of the usual Christmas events. It stresses the personal cost to Mary, Joseph, and other people, of Jesus' coming into the world. It aims to offer comfort and inspiration.

All are welcome from our partnership and across the diocese.
