At Litchard Mission, we love celebrating the Good News of Christmas: “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke chapter 2, verse 11).
This year, Christmas will look very different, but we hope you can still join some of our celebrations, as we remember together this Good News in the middle of such challenging times.
Details of our Christmas events are below. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
Messy Church at Home (Online)
Available on YouTube
We put together another Messy Church at Home on 6th December, with songs, craft, a Bible story, and other fun – all from the comfort of your own home!
The craft is especially designed for ages 5-11, but children and adults of all ages are very welcome to join in!
You can find the craft templates and YouTube link on our Messy Church page.
Litchard Nativity Trail
Throughout December, look out for our Litchard Nativity Trail! There are 8 signs to follow and learn about the story of Christmas.
The trail begins and ends in the Litchard Mission car park, and takes 30-45 minutes. You can follow it any day, with Christmas presents available if you complete it on a Tuesday the 8th, 15th or 22nd between 3-6pm,
You can either get a map from the church car park on a Tuesday between 3-6pm, or download it here:
