It's the most wonderful time of the year, and at Christchurch, we're hosting more activities than ever to get you into the Christmas spirit. There's lots to see and do including our new interactive, walkthough Christmas experience (where you can get a whole new perspective on the Christmas stories), loads of parties, and of course all of our traditional Christmas services. 


Inside Christmas

Angels with tinsel and Mary in blue, cuddly stable scene, bright star twinkling, kings and shepherds, and don’t forget the donkey! What's Christmas to you?

Family Film Sing-Along

Unwind from all of the usual run-up-to-Christmas activity with a chilled-out movie. Bring the whole family to Christchurch for a free sing-along to this well-known animated Wintery film. We're even showing the sing-along edition in case you don't know all of the lyrics by heart! 

Christchurch Christmas Services

In addition to all of our extra activites this year, we're also hosting all of our normal Christmas services as well. Here's a timetable to help you choose (or just come to everything!). All our Christmas services are held in Worship Area of Christchurch.
