Christmas 2020

As we’ve all got used to, Christmas is going to look a bit different this year. At All Saints and St Oswald’s though, we’ll be remembering this important time of year both here online through the viewer on the homepage, or on our Facebook page, as well as in person in our Church buildings as much as government guidance allows.

We’ll continue to gather at 10:30 each Sunday morning, alternating between our two buildings, and streaming the services for those who can’t or don’t feel ready to come out in person yet, but we’ll also have these special service going on –  we’d love to see you, either in person or online!

Our Advent Calendar!

This year, we’re also been marking the lead up to Christmas with daily reflections led by some of our Church family, based on a tradition called a Jesse Tree, which adds a small image to represent a different passage from the Biblical story each day to help us  think through how Jesus’ birth fits in with the bigger picture. You can follow the daily videos on Facebook, or go straight to each post below! We’re super grateful to Roots for creating the resources for us to follow!
