Looking forward to Christmas...

Over 2,000 years ago a group of Magi (or ‘wise men’) made an extraordinary journey across the Middle East in search of a special baby. Bearing gifts and following a star, they came upon a humble stable. There they found Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus – an event celebrated in popular Christmas carols to this day.

For many, Christmas is a time for looking forward, to spending time with family and friends, of giving and receiving gifts. For others, perhaps after a difficult year or living alone, it can be more of a challenge. As we prepare for the holiday, it is good to look out for our neighbours, and honour those who serve us in shops, health and other services.

Our churches are here to offer a safe welcome - to warm up at a coffee morning, find someone to talk to, or attend a church service in person or online. We hope the information in the website will help you make the right connection.

If you would like to request prayer for yourself or someone you know, please see our prayer link below.

Calling crafters and makers...

Following last year's knitted angels, this year Christians Together in Alnwick is aiming to have 1,000 stars made, ready to distribute around town from 18th December. These will be packed in compostable bags, with a small printed greeting. The stars can be knitted, woven, cut-out or made from willow strips. We have provided some simple illustrated instructions - you can find these on our Christmas page by clicking on this highlighted link:
