December 2002



Tickets for the two informal services on Christmas Eve at St Giles' will be available at the Family Service (
9.45 a.m.) on Sunday 1 December.  If any remain they will be available from me on 622970.  The services will be held, as usual, at 3 p.m. and 4 30 p.m. and we look forward to seeing the Church full on both occasions.  The story of the birth of Jesus as the Saviour of the world will be re-told and we shall build our scene at the crib with the help of some of the children.  If you are unable to come to any of our other services over the Christmas period, please try and make one of these a priority and put Jesus at the centre of your Christmas celebration.
