This year, with Covid-19, Christmas will be different but it doesn’t mean Christmas is cancelled! At the Church of the Good Shepherd we are planning lots of differnt activities to make this a Christmas to remember for something good, something that can bring Comfort and Joy to everyone in Crookhorn.

Advent trail

Let’s Light up Crookhorn this Christmas

A different window will be lit each night until all windows are lit by 24th forming a trail around the parish.

We’re encouraging families to walk the trail and guess the carols being depicted.

 
 

Follow the Star

4-6:30pm Sat 19th Dec at CoGS

After much prayer and discussion we are sad to announce that this event has been cancelled.

The decision has not been made lightly, but we feel that, with the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases, we need to keep people as safe as possible and that encouraging people to meet together would not be giving the best message to our community.

Flash Carols on the Green

6pm St John’s Avenue Green Space

After much prayer and discussion we are sad to announce that this event has been cancelled.

The decision has not been made lightly, but we feel that, with the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases, we need to keep people as safe as possible and that encouraging people to meet together would not be giving the best message to our community.

Christingle

CoGS Takeaway Christingle.

Online (Zoom and YouTube).
Bookable via eventbrite.We will miss our Christingle service at CoGS this year so much that we decided to hold one on Zoom instead!
We’ll be preparing takeaway bags with everything you need to make your own Christingle, EXCEPT for the orange.
They will contain enough for every child to make one, so remember to let us know how many children are taking part.
You will receive an email nearer the time with the Zoom code, and details of when and where to collect your bags.
