Worship at The Square

Following our long period of closure due to Covid, we have now re-opened the church buildings for worship, and most of our services are now conducted live in church. Most of these are now also live streamed on YouTube, so you can join in online if you can't make it in person. See our Worship This Week page for up to date information. On that page, you can also find resources to help you in your worship at home, if that is your choice.

 

Worship Elsewhere

Other Opportunities for online worship in South Bedfordshire Circuit are listed on our Worship This Week page.

Trinity Methodist Church in Leighton Buzzard are holding weekly evening services at 6pm via Zoom. All are invited to join us.

Festival of Carols Poster +

Festival of Carols

Friday, 9th December
Saturday, 10th December
3pm - 8pm

Sunday, 11th December
noon - 3pm

We will be holding a Festival of Carols again this year to coincide with the council-run Twilight Markets held in front of the church. There will - hopefully! - be displays, refreshments, a craft stall and possibly even some carol-singing sessions to join in.

So individually or as a group, get your thinking caps on, choose a carol and come up with a display to represent it - this could be craft-based, a flower arrangement, a painting or drawing: anything! Use whatever gifts God had given you! It could be as simple as a nativity set for 'Away in a Manger'... or perhaps you have some other Christmas decorations that could be put to good use? It doesn't matter if more than one person or group chooses a carol as the interpretations are likely to be very different. 

We would like to offer drinks and cakes as refreshments so bakers get ready.... singers and musicians get ready... volunteers for stewarding get ready... Any questions or further ideas, please speak to Lisa. (01582 757983, lisafoster223@gmail.com)

Sign up to help using this sheet
Or book your space for your carol display using this one
(These are Word documents, so you can download, complete, and email back)
Please return to Lisa Foster
