Christmas Eve - Monday, 24 December 2018

Candle Services - 4.15pm and 6.00pm

The Candle Service on Christmas Eve is St Mary's best attended service. Congregations have grown to such an extent that two identical services are held, one starting at 4.15pm, the other at 6pm. Last year roughly 600 people, of all ages, joined one of these acts of worship to celebrate the birth of the Christ child.

The earlier service is always very busy and is planned with younger children in mind; if you like a less crowded environment or are attending as adults without young children, perhaps you would prefer to come to the later service.

Midnight Mass - 11.30pm

Midnight Mass, Blessing of the Crib and First Communion of Christmas.


Christmas Day - Tuesday, 25 December 2018

Family Eucharist - 10am
