Blue ChristmasBlue Christmas 

As the shops already begin to heave with the hustle and bustle of what can be a very commercial Christmas, the noisy, clanging background reflects a society that often has an expectation that all people will enter into the jolly atmosphere of the period.

However, we appreciate this will not be the case for all for a variety of reasons, whether through memories evoked, bereavement, illness, anxiety and many others.

Blue Christmas, held in the Parish Church, Street on Saturday. 11 December at 4pm, will offer a quiet, thoughtful atmosphere to reflect on the hope of the Christmas message, there will be an opportunity to join with some appropriate carols and prayers if you would like to or just the space to be with your own thoughts.
